Introduced in 1988, the 996 was the first radical offshoot of the original 990. The 996’s technological features represented six years of evolution, and featured a subtly streamlined exterior design, making for an exceptionally wearable, high-performance shoe. The MADE in USA 996 is outfitted with a premium, pigskin suede and features ENCAP cushioning.
