The 996 has been one of the icons in the New Balance range since it was first released in 1987. It was the very first running shoe to break the $100 price mark. And for good 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. Blue suede combines with uniform stitching, and white and gold details. The leather strap with woven label and a shape that is still as gorgeous as it was back then – this is the stuff retro dreams are made of!
