New Balance 996s have seen their fair share of updates in the past, however the American brand's most recent rework of it includes a few elements that haven't been incorporated before.

Overall, the sneakers are neutral in color -- with the uppers constructed mostly from beige leather. A complementary shade of brown marks its branding on the sides and a deeper hue of beige is brought to the lining and the outsole of the sneakers as well. This neutral colorway helps the accents on the heels of the New Balance 996s to stand out. These components have an iridescent look to them, as shades of light pink and blue interchange at different angles. Currently, the sneakers can be purchased from New Balance stockists.
