It’s never too early to plan out your future cops, and thanks to the zealous nature of the sneaker community, as soon as anyone gets whiff of what’s coming we’re all quick to find out.

Instagram user guccipaul_mrleaker is known for exactly what it sounds like, sourcing first looks at upcoming releases and letting those who follow him see what’s up. His account is private, so only those who meet his approval get to see what he has up his sleeves, but we’re gunna show you what he let loose just recently: three pairs of New Balance 997s for Spring / Summer 2016.

Each pair is a pretty low key colorway. The first is a light grey upper with dark grey suede on the tongue and heel, with a few hits of orange (almost like a Staple Pigeon colorway). The second is a cream suede upper with a similarly covered woven textile on the vamp and heel, with hits of black, grey, and brown. Finally, the third is an almost entirely navy blue leather upper, with a few hits of navy nubuck, and an oxblood leather liner that matches a midsole wrap.

Spring / Summer 2016 is still a long way off, so things could change for New Balance’s plans. But until we hear otherwise, it looks like that’s what’s coming.
