New Balance has really outdone themselves this time. The New Balance MRL996 ‘Patent Leather’ is a gorgeous and simple release dropping in mid-February overseas at mita sneakers. An incredibly elegant black patent leather upper sits atop a white REVlite midsole with a black mesh tongue and waxed round laces to finish it. Like I said, it’s simple, yet breathtakingly beautiful. The quality looks amazing on the pair pictured; not a stitch is out of line and there are no glue stains anywhere. The price for the New Balance MRL996 ‘Patent Leather’ will probably be a premium one, but can you blame NB? Just look at it. If you’re thinking Space Jam XI when you see this shoe, think again, because this MRL996 certainly outdoes that XI colorway in the looks department. This is the sneaker that truly fits wit a tux.
