Description Bringing REVlite to New Balance cross-training, the 997 combines lightweight stability with flexibility to allow the athlete to move more quickly and efficiently during all activities.
PROBANK technology, on the lateral side of the foot's foward half, distributes force more evenly so you can change directions quickly and efficiently. Cutting movements can cause the foot to slide to the outside, or lateral edge of the shoe, and this technology inspired by progressive banking on a race track helps keep you moving through course changes more smoothly than ever before
QUIX technology on the medial side of the forward half of the foot provides optimal traction and a solid base for side-to-side or cutting movements, keeping rubber in contact with your training or playing surface for an excellent grounding for better performance
Innovative REVlite midsole provides premium responsiveness and durability at a 30% lighter weight than other foams with comparable performance
N-Durance® rubber compound for maximum outsole durability
