The latest New Balance 998. American made. Great colorway. Very nice. A standard construction- rubber outsole, EVA midsole, with the upper cemented into place. The molded exterior heel counter looks really sharp. The double needle stitch is very clean, and the white overlay peeking out from beneath the eyestays and onto the toe box is a nice detail. It really creates a strong composition with white midsole which is broken up with the gray printed blocking.
