New Balance has been doing fairly well recently and has received a lot of criticism lately, especially on their New Balance 999 that we were given a look at yesterday. New Balance sticks to it’s roots with the New Balance 996 giving us a look at a comfortable yet attractive sneaker. We can see they started the sneaker with a nice navy blue suede and mesh upper, along with some white accents that can be found throughout. We can also see the New Balance logo taking on a steel blue lining that we’ve all seen before on the 1300CL. Look for these to drop at New Balance retailers starting July.
