If any sneaker manages to be futuristic and retro at the same time, it's the New Balance 9060, here in "Grey". It's inspired by the 99X series and reinterprets old features that give it a 2000s touch. The mesh upper is paired with extended stabilizers, the pod midsole emphasizes the ABZORB and SBS system that provides decent cushioning and is combined with translucent CR elements on the heel. The leather overlays flow together with the sole and "N" logo in shades of gray for a cohesive, bright colorway. And the gemstone logo on the tongue is by the way inspired by the original 991.
