THING: New Balance MRL996 “Reissue” Pack
Last month, we gave y’all a sneak peek at the upcoming limited edition MRL996 pack, which is comprised of the original Classic Grey 996 colourway and a long forgotten Footlocker-exclusive Black/Gold colourway from back in the day.
Here’s a closer look at the originals, courtesy of New Balance Japan’s archive, and you can see how close the soon-to-be-released versions are, you can barely tell they’ve been updated with New Balance’s modern Revlite soles that make them much more lighter.
These will only be available in top-tier New Balance stockists are extremely limited, and yes they’re every bit as comfortable as the standard 996 model that New Balance has been making since 1988!
The MRL996 “Reissue” pack will be available from August 2013 onwards at: Limited Edt Vault and Leftfoot Cathay (Singapore); Crossover (Malaysia); Vii Athletic Club (Thailand); Progress and Sole Academy (Philippines); as well as select New Balance Concept Stores in South East Asia.
