The 996 has been an iconic shoe in the New Balance lineup since it was first released in 1987. It was the very first running shoe to break the $100 price mark. And not without reason. Its Revlite sole unit, rubber outsole and suede upper inspired runners and athletes around the globe. Now it’s back in its original silhouette and we’re blown away. Gray suede with uniform stitching, the leather tongue with woven label, a navy blue offset “N-branding” on the side and a matching color accent on the midsole that successfully finishes off this beautiful, girly colorway. This is the stuff retro dreams are made of!
