The New Balance 993 is back once again with two classic made-in-the-US colorways: New Balance‘s signature grey and white, and an almost-as-storied black and grey. Although the brand has been undeniably busy this season, cranking out collaborations with the likes of Aimé Leon Dore and continuing to push the New Balance 990v5, they clearly haven’t forgotten about other heritage styles in the interim period.
First introduced in 2008 and the final model to be included in the 99X line, the 993 mixes elements from the New Balance 991 and New Balance 992 while adding enhanced cushioning for a modern-day feel. Much like the other 99X styles, the look presented is heavily heritage-inspired, with layered detailing on the mesh and suede upper, and an overall air of elegance given off by the simple-yet-effective color schemes.
Fully classic in its look, the grey and white pair mixes three shades of grey on its upper for a monochromatic palette, then adds white and silver detailing on the branded accents. Meanwhile, the black and grey makeup uses a heavy dose of hi-vis reflective accents on its stark upper, making for a style that’s simultaneously subtle and striking. Both shoes feature a two-tone ABZORB midsole and a black rubber outsole.
Both colorways of the New Balance 993 “Made In US” are available now via New Balance’s webstore. The retail price for each pair is set at $175 USD.
In other NB news, the brand recently used recycled materials to construct a colorful sneaker dubbed the PRJ 3.0.
