New Balance 992 vs. New Balance 993 Comparison

New Balance 992 vs. New Balance 993 Comparison

Last week we gave you a first look at the latest model from New Balance, the New Balance 993. The shoe is an updated version of the famed New Balance 992 that has become a staple item in shoe stores since it was first introduced in 2006. The New Balance 993 approaches closer to crafted perfection with the incorporation of new technologies including an ACTEVA?? midsole for unbelievable comfort and DTS in the heel to provide a softer heel strike. The shoe also has improved heel-to-toe transition and forefoot flexibility and is lighter in weight.

Just like the 992, the New Balance 993 is produced in their domestic facilities. New Balance has long built a great reputation for its commitment to American labor and this is called out with a “USA” stitched on the heel.

Take a look at a visual comparison between the New Balance 992 and 993 after the jump. The New Balance 993 is available now at retailers nationwide.

    b-e-a-utiful pics!

    I always liked the 992 so I am going to have to try these on next time I am at foot locker

    Sometimes a shoe doesnt need a nick name or a *pack* to be something good. new balance always makes a quality sneaker that is very comfortable and best of all this one gives AMERICAN people jobs.

    now more than ever I am concerned with shopping around my way spending my money locally. needless to say I am going to my local running shop and spending my hard earning money on something that will give some dude in the USA a job.

    props to new balance for doing your thing for american workers

    back of the kicks have a fatter a$$, overall nice but whats up with the USA stars and stripes, pretty tacky

  4. Pure HOTNESS. Great job, NB.

    does anyone remember when Michael Moore went to Nike’s HQ to ask if phil knight could open a nike factory in Flint MI? I saw this on youtube ages ago, but this post just totally reminded me that new balance actually makes a ton of their kicks here. I need a new pair for the gym so I am going to have to try these out. if I am going to spend my money for a good shoe its nice knowing its hooking someone up with a job here in the USA!

    ^ Jason, ironically I stumbled across it over the weekend (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOI0V4kRCIQ)

    Maybe for part of Barack’s upcoming economic stimulus package he needs to encourage kids to buy more New Balances :-P Its already a given that these are going to be a sure seller in the DC area.

    They are both FIRE to me!

  8. Joe says:

    I’m sorry, but these look like old-running people shoes. :(

  9. Ikon Radio says:

    ^^^^ The fact that you know what grandpas balls look like is scary….real scary :( LOL As for the kicks, they are both nice. I liked the 992′s.

    Oh and Jason, they built another one in my old Neighborhood in Memphis….its massive bro. Right on Frayser Blvd. :)

  11. Window says:

    Ah, made in USA. Nice, NB.

  12. lo says:

    Nice kicks your right. The D.M.V. loves our New Balance kicks. In this area New Balance has always been a top seller!

    long distance/cross country/marathon shos

  14. cman says:

    they kinda look just about, pretty much, almost the same

  15. DSMITH says:

    Yo, when the black and blue joints come out?

  16. Bugs says:

    bring the 990′s back

  17. solesaved says:

  18. djwall2 says:
