New Balance has been trying to really make you see their shoes as something more than the stereotype of being an old persons shoe. They have really taken their models and updated them to the current market and even taking a model like the 696 which was made overseas has finally made it to the states. It is a very sleek looking shoe. This womens colorway that we have is a navy base suede with a red heel wrap. White midsole and gum bottoms really finish this shoe off well. Check it out after the break and let us know what you think.
