Giving a nod to the classic style of the past, the retro original look of New Balance’s 996 has been combined with premium cushioning and upper technologies for a comfortable and durable fit with a look that will have everyone doing a double take at your new kicks.
Upper: Nubuck leather upper provides natural comfort, durability, and breathability. Mesh panels provide increased ventilation and also help keep the shoe light. Internal heel counter and external heel clip center the foot at heel strike, setting up your foot for a smooth transition through the gait cycle. Reflective logos and heel provide increased visibility in low light. Padded heel collar and tongue provide increased comfort.
Proudly made in the USA.
Midsole: Encap® is a core of soft cushioning EVA in the midsole with a tough polyurethane rim for more support and durability. PU midsole provides excellent cushioning and durability with resistance to compression set. Removable EVA insole provides increased cushioning.
A carbon rubber heel provides increased durability in this high wear area. Blown rubber in the forefoot with flex grooves provides lightweight cushioning and traction with optimal flexibility.
Available in width D (Medium).
