Available Now // This American Made New Balance 998 Packs a Patriotic Palate
Another New Balance Banger.
New Balance has been coming in hot this Summer, with out-of-the-ordinary releases for the traditionally greyscale brand. 2019 has seen the boys and girls from the Boston brand switch things up in a major way, and it’s shaken up their market appeal, through modernized retoolings, vibrant palates and bold prints. But this next up aptly American-themed Made in USA 996 reverts back to their staple greys on their revered silhouette.
Construction and materials are still paramount for New Balance, with this particular pair still heavily focused on a mix of buttery and course suedes, nubucks, and a premium mesh, with the latter appearing here in washed-out navy. Nubuck underlays in light grey ride the height of the toe box and around the upper heel, with the back-end wrapped in the aforementioned nappy grey suede. Finer grains and lighter shades hit the mid panel, tongue and toe overlays to complete the upper. Below you’ll find the brand’s ABZORB midsole painted in grey, clipped at the heel by a navy plastic piece, with white/red blocking at the toe. Completing the design is a black rubber outsole, red NB heel branding, Navy profile “N” motifs and tri-color tongue text.
Both Made in the USA and constructed with ultra-premium materials has ensured that this Americana New Balance 998 deploys a premium price point of $220 USD — but that won’t stop the NB heads from scooping up a pair at select retailers like 43einhalb, who have these in stock and ready to ship worldwide right now!
