nonnative's designer Takayuki Fujii has reworked New Balance's iconic M996 silhouette into an all-new CM996 for the brand's "996 Collaboration Project."

Immediately, fans will notice that the "N" on the lateral side has been replaced with an embroidered "NB." Long-haired suede and white leather are used on the upper to give the sneaker a more retro and already used look. This is also in tune with the idea that "street=concrete" therefore the insoles feature concrete graphics and the overall colorway is grey, white and black. Additionally the heel counter and midsole are given a worn look and the most important feature is that the tongue is thickened with elastic rubber.

You can grab the nonnative x New Balance CM996NNS on July 27 for ¥ 18,800 JPY (~$175 USD) via COVERCHORD.

Earlier this year, New Balance and Aimé Leon Dore dropped one of the cleanest collaborations of the year.

Release Date: 7/27/19 (Saturday)
