Both models feature a premium suede and mesh upper, silver 3M reflective material at the “N” branding and heel tab, and an off-white midsole and black outsole combo. The grey color scheme, a reproduction of the first 996 grey, sees a monochromatic upper with white accents at the “N” outline and laces, whereas the black edition sees a tonal paneling with metallic gold accents at the “N” outline, inner lining and heel stabilizer.
Both colorways of the New Balance 30th anniversary 996 models are available now for ¥27,000 JPY (about $243 USD) each at New Balance Japan’s web store.
For more retro styles, the adidas Continental 80 will launch in an “Aero Blue” color scheme.
