One of the biggest complaints from sneakerheads is the quality of shoes. Crap leather, poor suede, peeling paint are just some of remarks often heard when discussing the topic.

If quality is your number one priority then look further than the New Balance's latest 997. Made in the U.S.A. and part of its "Weekend Bag Collection," these 997s feature premium materials and crisp details to impress even the most arduous of sneakerheads. Decked out in a fairly unique colorway of "Chalk Blue/Brown" these are the very definition of "low-key heat." These would undoubtedly blow off shelves if it was a collaboration. But fortunately for us that really want a pair, no hype precedes them making for an easier cop. Like all things of true quality, the only downside is the price point which comes in at $260. But if a superior product is what you want, then you have the option of copping these joints from UNDFTD right now.
