A true embodiment of New Balance's timeless design and performance innovation returns to the MADE in USA lineup in 2023. The original 998, released in 1993, was the first shoe to utilize ABZORB cushioning. This revolutionary step forward in shock absorption was matched visually with a sleek update to the classic 99X series look. The MADE in USA 998 features an OG grey colorway in a premium pigskin suede and mesh upper construction.
