THING: New Balance MRL996 Revlite
Here’s New Balance Japan’s Lifestyle Team Manager, Tetsuya Shono, wearing the upcoming MRL996 Revlite. They’ve basically taken the classic M996 upper and re-engineered it with their Revlite sole technology, so while it may look the same, it feels much lighter.
The black version pictured actually feature a “vintage” treatment on the soles to give them an aged look and are inspired by an old Footlocker-exclusive colourway from way back. While the classic grey version will be more widely available, the black is a limited release and will only be available at select stockists.
Look out for the shoes to release this coming July/August.
