New Balance has tweaked one of its signature silhouettes once again; the 996 has been given three bold monochromatic updates with a bevy of playful details in colorways of “Silver,” “Black” and “White.” This release follows a soft “Tan/White” iteration unveiled in the middle of last month.

This particular rendition of the 996 comes with a number of modern details that flip the silhouette’s original 1988 design on its head. Starting at the top of the shoe is an abstract tongue tag, made up of two horizontal color-blocks as opposed to the usual “996” logo and the inner tag — instead, cleaning instructions are placed at the toebox. A large “N” logo has been perforated along the sidewalls, complemented by “New Balance” branding at the lateral side of the front and the edge of the heel counter.

Additional details include a “996” stamped over a leather patch at the heel and branded laces that cover the central forefoot. All of these features rest atop an articulated C-CAP midsole, accompanied by repeated “NB” logos and the sneaker model’s style code.

All three colorways of New Balance‘s 996 is currently available at atmos’ website for $108 USD. You can also check New Balance’s website for other 996 colorways.
