Thoughts On New Balance 998.9?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't recall New Balance being a brand known for hybrids. That doesn't mean New Balance isn't down to test the water with a hybrid model.

You're looking at the New Balance 998.9 hybrid which is a combination of two classic NB models. The NB 998.9 is a mixture of the 998 and 990v3, now known as the 998.9.

For a more accurate breakdown, the shoe features the 998 upper and tooling from the 990v3. Is this a sign of more hybrids coming from New Balance? If so, what other models would you like to see together?

The 998.9 is currently available at Sneaker Politics for $220.

I curious how they feel. I'm a fan of both NB models, but never thought I'd see them together.

I don't think it works. The 998 on it's own is my favorite NB model but not mashed up like this. The mid just look off.
