Sometimes you’ve got to give the people what they want all at once, and New Balance is doing just that by blending two of its signature sneakers together to create the 991.9 model in a spring-appropriate colorway.
Featuring the Made In UK branding that’s been a design staple since 1982, this cool concoction pairs the New Balance 991 with the sole of the New Balance 990v3. The result is a smooth, pigskin suede pair of kicks with a cushioned mesh tongue that consists of neutral tones of grey, white, pink and black throughout. The high-vis “N” logo on the side panel adds a reflective effect into the mix, and the ENCAP midsole makes for a familiar & classic component that fans of NB have grown accustomed to seeing on majority, if not all, of their biggest drops. Overall, this mashup makes for a suitable option that both collectors of New Balance innovations like this one and those just looking for a dope pair of kicks will equally enjoy adding into the daily rotation.
The New Balance 991.9 Made In UK M9919FR is available for $200 USD right now at select retailers, including Premier who provided the imagery seen here:
