It’s hard not to get a Christmas vibe when you glance at this New Balance 996, right? For what it’s worth we can safely say that that wasn’t the aim when these were colored up as they won’t be in stores until February 2014. The shoes rely on the trusty Made in USA build, one that is once again heavily reliant on supple suedes. Check in after the break to get a more complete set of angles on the shoe and then tell us if this New Balance 996 is on your radar. Also, be advised that Titolo is taking pre-orders for this New Balance release as we speak.
