These New Balance men's lifestyle shoes in Grey / Blue are trail-inspired take on the 997 Sport style and contemporary update to the NB's iconic 997 with Cordura® material and rugged design details. Made with equal emphasis on tech and style, the upper borrows the DNA from the 997 heritage model and updates it with a more modern, sporty aesthetic. Encapsulating style reminiscent of the '09s, the chunky sole uses ENCAP Reveal technology for excellent underfoot comfort. ENCAP REVEAL midsole cushioning in the women’s 997 Sport help offer a stable, cushioned underfoot feel. ENCAP® midsole technology provides support and maximum durability.
