New Balance has gone back to the drawing board to introduce a minimal, deconstructed version of their classic NB 996 model. Designated as the "696 Reengineered", the sleek silhouette is built out of a single piece of perforated suede which allows for maximum breathability. The shoe comes with rawhide leather laces as well as a branded leather tongue tag. The New Balance REVlite midsole it sits on is designed to be exceptionally durable and lightweight, making it a perfect every day shoe. The New Balance 696 Reengineered is now available online and at our Toronto, Chinatown and West 4th locations.
