Bodega x New Balance 997 “NO BAD DAYS”

First seen back in May, Bodega‘s latest New Balance collaboration has finally received a proper name. The 997 Sport “No Bad Days” sports mixed materials and considered accents throughout, offsetting a neutral color scheme with thoughtful hits of color and text. Like the New Balance 997S “No Days Off” that premiered early this year, Bodega’s “No Bad Days” shoe boasts a similarly impactful upper that blends a host of different textures into one cohesive package. Brown grain leather and grey mesh co-mingle with a yellow “N” logo, grey hexagon patterning towards the rear and grid-like detailing across the black heel panel, the latter of which is stitched with red “997S” text for extra contrast.
 Yellow-tipped blue laces further offset of the design, while grey and off-white tones on the midsole keep the shoe relatively grounded, anchored by a black outsole. Bodega remains mum on when the sneaker will drop, but expect more information to arrive within the coming weeks.
