When it comes to New Balance, everyone loves a bit of “Made in…”, wether it’s our very own Flimby, allowing us to be proud of our nations flailing manufacturing industry, or the exotic Made in USA range such as this. This colourway of the 996 form the much loved 990 Series (one of NB’s best series) gives the shoe a tonal Mint Green suede and mesh upper that conjures up thoughts of Easter. Maybe that’s just me getting seasonal. Detailing is provided with 3M reflective material and matching hits of grey, while the N logo and midsole pop in white.
For some reason, I feel like this one might go a bit under the radar, mainly because New Balance seems to be living under the radar at the moment, but that just makes the brand even more cool, especially in todays era of super-hype. This premium New Balance Made in USA M996CSP is available now
