Sure, vibrant and colorful sneakers are cool and fun, but you also need to have kicks that are just as stylish but keep their appearance at a minimum. Take this women’s New Balance 996 for example. Although it might be discreet in color, the craftsmanship and materials on the shoe definitely do the talking.

The women’s New Balance 996 will come in an all-navy upper constructed out of a combination of suede and mesh. The only major part of the upper offsetting the tonal look is the brown leather heel tab. The side panel branding also comes in navy, while the branding on the tongue opts to come in white. Rounding out the look is the contrasting white midsole. Available now, ladies let us know what you think about this newest version of the New Balance 996.

Simple but effective. Since there’s not much going on in the upper, all the attention is focused on the nice suede, which is actually a good thing. The leather heel tab is also a nice touch that creates a nice break in the tonal upper.
