Another look at the J. Crew x New Balance 997 Moonshot is revealed, as the model has finally arrived at select retailers.
Celebrating the anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 mission (July 20, 1969) which occurred 47 years ago, the event is renowned as the first spaceflight that landed humans on the Moon, led by American astronauts — Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin.
The popular runner essentially resembles the neutral shade of the moon, as off-white with hints of dark grey and navy are prominent across its mixed material upper comprised of suede, leather and breathable mesh. Finishing touches consists of a crisp white midsole unit and navy outsole to solidify the overall palette and build.
I’m biased towards the silhouette in general and this is a cool theme. The overall colorway is versatile as well and it’s a nice, solid pair for the seasons.
