Impressive in a modern age of outsourced industry, New Balance still makes around 25% of their shoes domestically in the United States. One of those styles this year is the 1988 vintage redux M996 in Blue Suede. This rendition features New Balance’s ENCAP shock absorption, along with a pigskin suede leather and mesh upper with reflective 3M Scotchlite hits. Berkeley-based footwear boutique Bows & Arrows already has the 996 Blue in stock and ready for purchase for $135 USD.
