There are certain design hallmarks typically associated with the New Balance 996 silhouette that the brand’s loyalists look for in a new release. This upcoming M996JFB style neatly fulfills all those criteria: a traditional mesh and suede build, a made in the U.S.A. pedigree and a refined two-tone color scheme. In this particular case, the design makes use of an appealing light blue shade, complemented with hits of grey and silver throughout. The New Balance M996JFB is available for pre-order now through Afew’s online store. Look for the shoe to hit retailers stateside in April 2015.
