New Balance kicks off 2009 with two lifestyle-directed versions of the CM996M, a technical running shoe that was highly sought after by joggers and marathoners in the ’90s. The audaciously bold purple/pink pair pictured above is highlighted by black accents, buttery smooth leather, and a luxurious suede toecap. The package is finished off by a lucid all-silver version that’s augmented by a mesh ankle collar and toebox. The CM996M package will be available sometime in January 2009. Be sure to check back for pricing information and availability. In the meantime, be sure to visit New Balance’s official website. Via Hypebeast.
