words // Darren Griffin:
Undoubtedly among the most revered silhouettes in the New Balance arsenal, the NB 996 offers the foundational design palette for much of the lifestyle silhouettes we see from the American footwear brand. But now the New Balance 996 is taking on a refined new design, one that sees a reengineered stance based in modernism, comfort and breathability. Aesthetically, the biggest difference is the color-blocked, two-tone base that in this case comes in a blue suede rear with an engineered mesh grey front foot with a perforated toe. Structural updates include a FantomFit upper and taped seams that aid in the streamlined new approach to the 996. This all-new variation of the New Balance 996 is available now at afew.
