As a brand, New Balance evokes images of quality and luxury, and this latest release plays well into that imagery. The New Balance 597 is given an all leather rework that feels as rich as the brand’s storied history.

It’s a very simple style but the supple leather that they’ve used on this upper really redefines the style a bit. The model is smothered in the rich burgundy leather and everything from tongue to heel tab is covered. The only contrast in color is a white midsole but even that is wrapped up in a burgundy outsole.

The New Balance 597 Burgundy won’t hurt your pockets either as retailers like Upclassics have them stocked at $120 a pair.
