When we think of “Eastern Spices” — the clever moniker that sums up the shoe’s colorway perfectly — shawarma, hot paprika, saffron and even classic chili peppers are some of the vibrant hues that come to mind. For this set of kicks, a burnt orange is used for the entire suede/mesh upper and paired with a classic white midsole and grey accents used throughout. ABZORB cushioning and the signature reflective “N” logo on the medial and lateral side panels are all in place as usual, making for a fresh iteration of a classic silhouette that looks good enough to eat.

The New Balance M991SE “Eastern Spices” retails for $180 USD at select NB retailers, including 43einhalb who provided the dope imagery below:
