The New Balance M997HL gets treated to a great grey-based colorway this summer.

The detailed photos above give us a great look at a new New Balance M997HL that is said to be a part of the “Author Collection” from New Balance. The upper of this sneaker is dressed in a a couple shades of grey and features both premium mesh and premium suede. Hits of red and yellow are seen throughout the sneaker in places like the New Balance “N”, heel cap, and New Balance branding. A white and grey midsole holds up this runner while a black and red outsole grounds it.

Now, as we mentioned above, this New Balance M997HL is said to be a part of the “Author Collection.” That assumption comes from the fact that the sock liner features a black and red cityscape with the same font used on the first edition of said book.

This “Catcher in the Rye” New Balance M997HL is now available via shops like Up There Store.
