New Balance 996 Spring 2010

The New Balance 996 brings back memories. It was the first running shoe to cost more than $100, even before Nike. The 996 was THE running shoe to have in the late ’80s & early ’90s. Recently, the New Balance Japan Team has reintroduced the shoe giving it a newer, updated look.

For Spring 2010, New Balance is releasing the 996 is available in two new colorways, both of which feature a gradient-blending color scheme. The first pair fades from purple toe to a white mid to a silver heel. The second starts with a white toe which fades to blue and then black. These are a for-sure cop for any New Balance head for the New Year.
