New Balance 998 Navy

Once again this year New Balance has announced another colorway for its iconic 998 sneaker. Firstly released in 1993, this shape is known for being the first featuring the ABZORB technology, a sole mixing foam and rubber for a better shock absorbtion and more comfort from the heel and the toes. For a long time, this shape has remained restricted for the Japanese market, New Balance has decided to make the 998 revive for a wider public relocating the production in their American factories again. This year saw many nice colorways being released for the 998, this is another one following that rule. The 998MB features a navy suede and mesh upper with scattered burgundy and white details. On the tongue is written “Made in USA”, a proof for quality. Not so long ago, it would have been impossible to find this model in Europe, fortunately, times are changing! It is available at Hanon in pre-order – act quick before they sell out!
