New Balance is already getting ready for the winter season ahead of us, taking the classic New Balance 696 and upgrading the archival running model with a Sneaker boot tooling. The final production looks promising, as a monochromatic obsidian sees durable Cordura mesh resemblant fabric throughout the upper and added suede to contrast the leather branding. New Balance’s 3M obsession returns in small amounts too, as the reflective materials can be seen outlining the N branding and on the heel. Don’t forget about the off-white on the REVlite midsole which helps to make the shoe feel comfortable while also maintaining a vintage feel.
