PRODUCER: NEW BALANCE
New Balance 996 shoes date back with their history to 1987. They were designed as a running model and in a short time gained great popularity. 996 were the most popular in the US, even despite their price. They were in fact the first running shoes which exceeded the amount of $ 100 for a pair! But this is not the only curiosity. For the production of the model there were 2 soles used - for narrower and wider feet. Children edition of the model appeared on the market in 1998 and since then we have two versions for kids to choose from - laced and fastened with velcro. Children's New Balance sneakers are made of synthetic suede, breathable mesh and synthetic leather. Stabilization of the foot is provided by a flexible rubber bands imitating laces and velcro fasten. Inside there is a textile lining and a removable insert. The sole is made in the inside of cushioning EVA foam and adhesive rubber on the outside.
