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 PackerShoes.com

The 247 has been a strong new silhouette for New Balance. With a neoprene sock and engineered mesh on the toe, these monochrome “Breathe” pack options each feature a reflective “N” logo and a REVLITE midsole that provides lightweight cushioning. Four colors are available, with brighter options like sherbert and mint to give the wearer two bolder selections, while white and navy offer more classic choices.

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.

New Balance’s answer to many popular one-piece runners is the 247, and this Sport pack offers a lightweight construction with engineered mesh and a neoprene sock paired with New Balance comfort with a modified midsole from the M998. Both models lean heavily on their respective base colors–black and olive–while adding a touch of contrast. The black option has a bit of light blue on the tongue logo, the front of the midsole, and the N logo, while the olive colorway uses black accents.

Two made in the USA New Balance classics arrived, with the M996 which was first produced in the US in 1987. This model arrives 30 years later in a muted suede and mesh upper and looks as fresh as the day they arrived. The M1300 arrived in 1985 with a $130 price tag, which was among the priciest running shoes ever seen at the time and has since become a collector favorite. Arriving for 2017 in Steel Blue with a gray suede overlay, this M1300 has a look that has been on point for decades.

Available now at both Packer locations and online at PackerShoes.com.
