The good people at SIZE? seem to be never not working at the moment, hitting us with a constant stream of collaborations and exclusives, and next up is a strong pack featuring the NEW BALANCE MRL996 in five colour-blocked make-ups.

The 996 has had a decent run this year, with apple green and royal blue USA made versions hitting hard, and this pack keeps to the tonal recipe with suede and mesh in slightly more autumnal hues for that classic NB look.

If you’re thinking these are just more typical NB’s then you’ve missed a trick – the Encap multi-density foam midsole this shoe has sported since 1989 has been swapped for the latest tech foam, RevLite, saving around 30% more weight than the old setup.

This is a strong pack which mixes a great NB silhouette and a nicely revamped midsole with decent colourways, and whilst they may not have that USA-made shape, the teaser pics have them looking nice, so we’re eager to see them in the flesh.

The five colourways (Gold, Navy, Red, Grey and Light Blue) of the NEW BALANCE MRL996 are now available with SIZE? in the UK from 08:00hrs BST online on FRIDAY 30.8.13 and as always, can be found via the link-through below.
