Introduced in 1993 and rated one of the best releases of the year by Complex the New Balance 998 is represented this summer by two Made in USA colourways.
Featuring the trademark ABZORB midsole and the traditional suede and mesh construction the M998CHI and M998CPL keep it clean in execution with the M998CHI taking on a deep green with a nice white contrasting “N” and midsole. The only other pop of colour coming in the form of a very small piece of red detailing on the rear of the midsole as well as red stitching on the tongue and on the reverse of the tongue.

The M998CPL takes on a more two tone approach with a dark and light grey upper and a mainly dark grey midsole. The same red as the M998CHI appears in the same places but with the addition of a hint at the front of the midsole, on the side panel to the rear of the 3M “N” and at the heel counter. Other hints of 3M also feature throughout.
