Sporting a patriotic red, white and blue color scheme, the last New Balance 996 we saw was an instant hit with readers. Following that pair is this one, which sports a darker, more sinister look.
Charcoal grey suede is used one the toe and heel, while a lighter colored mesh fills the toe box and shows up again at the collar. Black leather support the mid-panel, which shows off a reflective N logo. If you’re after a pair of these Newbies, you’ll have to head to mita or wait until they come stateside.
