New Balance C-Series

Recently released sneakers from New Balance, the new 996C Collection, created in two forms. To begin; a black rubberised leather version, with reflector logo and secondly a full 3M reflective version – for high visibility at night.

The 600C is available in four colour-ways, with a sock construction for easy access and a fully scratch-resistant rubber upper for durability.

Perforations in the vamp (upper) allow for breathability, while the logo and heel perforations conceal the 3M reflective material. 3M is also featured in the lace fleck, heel tab and tongue logo.

As with the 996C a tongue pocket allows the wearer to tuck their laces away, avoiding any entanglement. Flecks in the forefoot reveal a stiffer and more durable compound rubber to prevent sole flex.
