New Balance’s REVlite-cushioned 996 has been the canvas for some of the Boston-based brand’s best make-ups over the past year, including monochromatic black and tan affairs, as well as last year’s “Heritage Grey” drop and collaborative endeavors alongside both WHIZ LIMITED and mita. Now the MRL996 is back for yet another collaboration — this time alongside UNITED ARROWS.
