John Rich, founder of Woolrich, and William J. Riley, founder of New Balance, shared a common business philosophy: deliver only top quality products to their customers. Woolrich became known for warm, hardworking products prized by hunters, loggers and rivermen. New Balance pioneered an innovative arch support to relieve the pain of workers who stood on their feet all day.

Our New Balance X Woolrich 997 collaboration is the best of both worlds, incorporating innovative footwear technology with legendary Woolrich wool.
