If there's one thing sneakerheads look forward to besides high-profile collaborations and resurgence of legendary silhouettes, it would be anniversary release sneakers that are just as difficult to get as any other limited edition trainers. Set to launch to the masses very soon, Boston based footwear label New Balance celebrates the 20th anniversary of their popular NB991 model in two stunning colorways: "Earth Grey" and "Enamel Blue", both guaranteed to attract a significant level of hype.
It's hard to deny that the 992 model was all the rage last year, but its time for the 991 to take the spotlight this year. Flaunting a Made in UK construction, these trainers are finely crafted from ultra-breathable mesh underlays and furnished with premium pigskin overlays, overall carrying out a luxury sneaker vibe. Both indulge in stunning nostalgic grey hues that mirror its original colourway when it made its grand debut several years ago, a light brownish coats the surface while darker tones of grey land on the mesh panels.
While branding details on the first pair maintain its dusky colour palette, the latter is adorned with teal accents for a pop of contrast sure to turn heads anywhere you go, this includes the sportswear giant's "N" logo on the side panels, inside tongue label and "2001" embroidered on the heel panel that nods to its original release date. The legendary design is continued down below with a dual-toned tan and crisp white midsole housing the upper and equipped with ABZORB cushioning technology that promises absolute comfort all day long.
If you're looking to add these kicks to your collection, the New Balance "20th Anniversary" pack is scheduled for a global release on the 26th of February. In related news, you might as well take a closer look at the 15 New Drops & Restocks From New Balance That Will Up Your Shoe Game.
