As the Woodstock anniversary is upon us this month New Balance has taken full advantage of that summer music vibe with the “Festival Pack”. Two iconic silhouettes hit just in time for a cool down of weather still well within the festival season. The Made in the USA New Balance 997 and the 998 are updated to celebrate the summer love that embraces the ideals of a music festival from the 60’s and 70’s. Bold prints and colors mark the retro fashion of yesterday with updates that join in today’s hottest styles. Premium materials, textures, and prints give the Festival Pack a free-spirited feel, while ensuring each layer is primed for a look that will require a second look. The styles are only here for a limited time in limited quantities.
First up is the Made In US 997. Keeping it classic but with a whole lot of flavor the 997 especially refines your look with rich black premium suede. Reflective accents and touches of leather finish this sleek take on one of the most popular New Balance models. The most striking detail of the 997 might just be the star-equipped blue tongue with red New Balance Made In USA text. Not to be outdone the textured fabric heel mixes pink and purple prints while a lightly yellowed ENCAP midsole.

Sporting bright yellow laces the Made in the US 998 Festival Pack is layered with bright prints and colors. The hot pink and blue textured tongue stands out with a black embroidered logo. The 998 is for someone who truly wants to stand out from the crowd. The patterned shoe is sure to turn heads thanks to its bold textile uppers and supple pigskin suede overlays.
