It’s almost opening day for baseball fans and New Balance has commemorated the occasion with a killer new combination of shoes. The drop is so fire that you don’t even need to be a sports fan to appreciate them, and that added layer of duality makes them the perfect candidate for our Sneaker of The Week.

The New Balance 997 Home Plate Pack contains two colorways of the running shoe and both have a similar feel. A gradient fade runs from heel to toe taking the suede shoe from dark to light. The model is served up in blue or burgundy and both pair have enough personality to push any outfit over the edge.

You can pick up these New Balance 997’s at select New Balance retailers including History of New York.
