We’re not going to lie, we slept on this pair a bit, but it looks like New Balance resurrected a bit of a classic colourway for one of their hybrid REVlite silhouettes.
You may be familiar with this colourway on the New Balance 576FRA which was decked out in the colours of the French tricolour, with embroidered French flag to boot on the heel, an absolute classic and a heavily sought after pair by New Balance collectors.
This particular pair, the New Balance ML997HCA features a 997 uppers on a 998 sole unit which has been switched up for some REVlite cushioning, and comes decked out in lush suede and leather, in blue, white, and red.
Don’t let this pair overshadow it’s New Balance ML997HCB counterpart though, it may be a lot more subtle and not as strong as that bold tricolour colourway, but the beige suede and hits of white, navy, and tan make this sneaker perfect for the summer.
I’d like to say that you could grab both of these through Up There, but unfortunately, due to us not being on the ball, the heavy hitting colourway is sold out, but there’s still the ML997HCB if you’ve got some cash burning a hole in your pocket!
