With the New Balance numbering system, generally the higher you go, the more premium the sneakers get. So with the New Balance ML999 bumping up against the four-digit mark and M1300CL far exceeding that mark, you know you are getting some quality goods with these releases, not to mention some certified classic kicks. The ML999 shown here comes in a rich navy suede with some nice bits of silver mesh on the toe box and ankle area. The M1300 CL comes in suede with the original ‘Steel Blue’ color scheme nicely intact, with minimally contrastive stitching for accenting. Hit the jump for a full look at these two gems from New Balance, both of which have been floating around Asia, but are now starting to hit select U.S. retailers such as West NYC.
