Japanese clothier Journal Standard, known for its vast array of modernized staples, returns to our digital pages to unveil a special edition New Balance 996 made with soft suede and CORDURA nylon.

As seen in the shots above, this CM996 is luxe and rugged. Painted with a tonal charcoal color that appears more like a faded black, the collaborative sneaker features a suede material throughout its upper, mixed with CORDURA’s durable nylon on the toe, ankle collar and tongue areas. A soft leather is then applied to the heel, along with a tan hairy suede tongue patch that nods to the model. Other details include a blue insole, white midsole and a small “New Balance” tag on the toe.

This New Balance CM996 is currently available for preorder at Journal Standard’s webstore with a delivery confirmed for late July. Although a Stateside release in unlikely, you can shop current 996 styles at NewBalance.com.
