The New Balance M996 has been reissued in limited production and will be available exclusively at Fred Segal in LA. The classic heritage running sneaker from New Balance features all-over premium pigskin leather and most notably is made here in the U.S. at one of New Balance’s Maine factories. The 996 was first introduced in 1988 and with an improved midsole, (utilizing the ENCAP® heel with a C-CAP midsole) was the best stability and cushioning combo to date. The 996 also featured the first use of 3M Scotchlight reflective trim for safer night time running by New Balance. Only 47 pairs of the M996 will be available at Fred Segal (Santa Monica) beginning on May 13th, 2010.
