Boasting a plush suede upper, the sneaker flaunts a predominantly dark green hue overall. Light mint green hits adorn the mesh toe box and collar section, while contrasting White leather detailing are evidenced on the toe, signature N logo across its sides, quarter panels and heel tab. Furthermore, a cream-colored heel unit nicely complements the striking colorway.

Debuting in a grey suede or black leather aesthetic, you can now grab either pair for the retail price of $190. What do you think about the New Balance 2016? Let us know in the comments below.
