Kith mastermind Ronnie Fieg has taken to Instagram to preview an upcoming New Balance collaboration. The silhouette of choice is the 997.5 hybrid, featuring an upper borrowed from the 997, fused with the ABZORB-equipped sole unit taken from the 998. Atop the crisp white tooling is a navy suede upper, accented with a pop of bright blue on the "N" side logo. Unfortunately there's bad news here, found in the caption accompanying the pic, in which Ronnie notes that this New Balance 997.5 "Archipelago" is a releasing under the "Friends and Family loyalty program."
