U996TE "Grey Day"
In commemoration of their grey legacy, New Balance celebrates “Grey Day” — a moment in time to reflect and appreciate how far things have come. In over 100 years New Balance has done many things but none longer-lasting than their decision to make grey their colour.
After spending some time off the roster, New Balance has called-up the 996 silhouette once again for a crack at the title. Originally released back in 1988, the 996 was an evolution of the recipe which made the 990 and 995 so successful. Compared with earlier versions, the 996 brought ENCAP cushioning to the table — a technology first debuted on the 1300. Although updated, the shoe's lines were still very much in alignment with the classic sneaker visual language of the time.
The Grey Day release retains the traditional suede and mesh material mix, substituting a rough-cut hairy suede for the velvety pigskin we are more used to seeing.
