It's always fun to see a company deliver a fire pair of sneakers without the help of a collaborator and that is just what New Balance has done. They've turned around an absolutely stunning pair of runners that is certain to stick with you through the seasons and become a wardrobe staple.

This pair of New Balance 997s belongs to the Weekend Bag Collection and features a supple suede and mesh build in a blend of grey and tanned leather. Accenting colors include hits of navy on the logo as well as a deep gum outsole that carries over to the branding on the heel. The finished product feels like something you'd see with that collaborative peg in the title but come squarely from New Balance's USA plant with no help from outside contributors whatsoever.

Let's keep it all the way funky, these aren't going to spend much time inside of your weekend bag as they'll probably be on your feet seven days a week. They're listed at $260 a pair and you can pick them up at UNDFTD right now.
