Fresh for the pickings is a lineup of some New Balance heavy hitters that the brand has released as part of their Summer 2010 collection. Featuring the 587, 996 and 998, the three sneakers feature subtle, yet stylish color schemes in a mixture of the finest suede’s and leather’s available to man.
Starting with the New Balance 587, you got a black leather base slightly accented by a few strains of silver leather and plenty of grey mesh. The 996 features a predominantly suede base in a nice shade of dark grey, with the standard use of mesh worked in here and there. Accenting this pair is a black leather midfoot and a few accents of silver. Finally, for the 998, New Balance used more of an eye-catching color scheme consisting of light grey suede throughout the base with accents of blue applied to the mesh tongue, suede heel panel and surrounding the New Balance logo. There’s also a little touch of green as well, worked onto the “MADE IN USA” embroidery on the tongue and on the “NB” embroidery on the heel.
