New Balance’s Elite Collection made a strong first impression with a trio of premium suede 1500s. Now the New Balance 999s Sneaker News spotted early on eBay have started to make their way toward retail, so let’s take another look at what could be the strongest of the set so far. This series of grey suede and mesh tones adds a bit of red for a sporty look that’s still fairly low-key, but serious fans will be able to spot these from a distance thanks to the rarely used ticked laces. Take a closer look below, let us know how this one compares to its blue brother and stick with Sneaker News for updates.
