The 996 has been one of the icons in the New Balance lineup since its initial release in 1987. It was the very first running shoe to crack the $100 price mark. And not without reason. Its Revlite sole unit, rubber outsole and suede upper wowed runners and athletes around the globe. Now it’s back in its original silhouette and we’re blown away. Beige suede combines with uniform stitching, and pink and blue details. The leather strap with woven label, reflective 3M “N” on the side and a shape that is still as gorgeous as it was back then – This is the stuff retro dreams are made of!
