We saw the New Balance 597 reissued at the start of 2017 and now they are releasing again in collaboration with size? and the new ’Neotropic’ Pack. Two colorways is included in the pack which is inspired from the lifeforms found within the Neotropic realm, an area built from dense tropical rainforest and home to a myriad of plants and animals.
The first colorway of the pair is a bold combination of Deep Red and Gold, an homage to Toucan’s in particular who frequent the Neotropic regions. The upper comprises of a slightly textured suede, dyed in both of the main color choices. Contrasting Grey mesh panels sit on the toebox and ankle region, breaking up the more flamboyant hues.
Reaching to the opposite end of the spectrum for the second colorway, the palette is a lot more muted, making use of shades of Green and Light Pink to take the theme in a slightly different direction. The Greens representing the rich forestry that shapes the tropical environment, and the Pink passiflora flower follows onto the mesh underlay and eyestay.
The New Balance 597 Neotropic Pack will release on September 22nd, 2017 exclusively at size? locations and online. Below you can check out more images which will give you a closer look.
