Released under the 'Connoisseur Ski' banner, New Balance looks to tie references to retro ski gear into their latest string of 996 releases. Donning a deep grey covering of suede and navy marled mesh, navy hits highlight the iconic 'N' on the medial and continue into the ENCAP midsole. Extra embellishments include a rich orange accent down low with opulent leather heel tabs capping off the whole package. Are these 996s doing things for you? If so, you can nab a pair from Sneaker Politics right this minute.
