Grey could well be New Balance’s signature colour. There’s barely a grey NB that doesn’t spark a bit of interest around the SF water cooler and they just don’t stop – the next one we’re thirsting for is the coolly coloured 996. The mid grey upper has been laid down in suede and textile, while a slice of blue calmly wraps over the heel counter partially obscuring the branding. The off-white midsole keeps things on the low, with a chunk of grey holding it down under the heel.
You can pick up the New Balance 996 TA ‘Grey’ now from select NB stockists, including Overkill.
