Want a triple whammy of patriotic, all-American style? Look no further than the latest, very limited release from the iconic New Balance for J. Crew partnership. The two brands are back at it again with an American-made sneaker that pays homage to the successful and historic Apollo 11 mission.
The 997 silhouette — recently reintroduced by New Balance — is done up here in a cool “Moonshoot” color that makes use of a premium suede upper and a rubber sole that’s sure to offer spring, bounce and comfort. The style was much-coveted through the 90s, but took a hiatus for a number of years — only adding to its allure and appeal for regular customers and rabid sneakerheads everywhere.
The look of this particular iteration of the sneaker is classic and understated, with the ability to offset your favorite pair of slim selvedge denim perfectly through the rest of the summer and into fall. Or, add some slim tan chinos and a classic oxford, and you’re set for either work or play. – $210
