Two New Balance 247s and an M997 drop in time for warmer climates. One 247 has a pastel palate of dusted peach, grey, and sage, while another has mint, light grey, and tan for an alternative seasonally-appropriate colorway. A more traditional model, the M997, arrives with thick suede across the upper and mesh on the toebox with a mix of grey shades and a pop of bright blue on the heel and teal on the collar for an effective mix of tones over a white ENCAP midsole.

Three clean New Balance models hit the shelves with classic styling from the Massachusetts-based footwear company.

A clean “sea salt” textured suede upper hits the traditional 574 with alternating heel tabs in salmon and pale blue with a tan leather liner and wood grain-patterned leather tongue tags. Finally, the “dad shoe” vibe is strong and well-executed with this made in the USA version of the 990 with a monochrome grey suede upper and 3M hits on the tongue, heel, toe, and N logo.

After skyrocketing in the sock business with pairs in over 40 countries, California’s STANCE enters the footwear world with this collaboration with New Balance for a 997 and a 1978. The 997 appears in a palette of tan, coral, and blues with a band of marbled teal, meant to resemble Boston’s residential neighborhoods. Perforated suede, nubuck, smooth leather, and snakeskin-patterned leather trade places on the upper with a co-branded footbed featuring the coordinates of both company’s headquarters. The 1978 has a colorway based on the coastline of San Clemente, CA with the light shade of blue representing the sea and the beige calling sand to mind. A clean white Vibram outsole finishes off the lightweight 1978. Each pair comes with its own custom pair of STANCE socks and a custom box as well.

Both styles are available tonight at midnight EST online at

New Balance’s made in the USA summer offerings have trickled in with three men’s 997 options. For men, a baseball-themed 997 runner from the Courmarin pack is named for the smell of freshly-cut grass and is outfitted in pops of mint, coral and aqua in suede and mesh over an ENCAP midsole. An additional 997 runner takes its inspiration from baseball stadiums with darker hues of brown, black, and burgundy with a gradient midsole that fades from black to brown to white. A third baseball-themed men’s option is draped in white leather with 3M hits and a grey outsole.
