The New Balance 996 was originally released in the mid 1980’s for hardcore joggers and marathoners. Now, the 996 is seen as a more casual and sleek sneaker more than anything else. The New Balance 996 has recently released in three new simple colorways. The first colorway has a light brown suede base accented by a white midsole and grey inner lining. The second pair features a white upper with grey accents and a beige heel tab. The final pair yields a black base with a white midsole, grey laces, and a similar beige heel tab. All three colorways of the New Balance 996 are rumored to be Japan exclusives. Via Sneakers.fr.
