New Balance looks to celebrate the rich history of American authors with an all new collection of silhouettes that are meant to evoke thoughts of leather bound books and rich mahogany.

The New Balance 997 has returned for the set of sneakers and if you were considering questioning the quality of them think again as it flaunts an upper chock full of rich materials. Namely black suede and brown leather with a highly contrasted orange heel counter and tan outsole elements.

This is part of a larger set of sneakers with the same amplified quality and as it seems prices are a bit higher on the models as well. We're sure you guys have no problem paying for quality right? Look for them to hit retailers like Crooked Tongues soon.
