Back in October, New Balance delivered a toasty-brown full-grain leather iteration of the 991, as part of the “Elite Gent” pack. This time around, the American footwear company has given the silhouette a suede-tinged refresh in lush muted earth tones.

Coming in a vibrant mix of materials, the shoe is mostly dominated by delicate pigskin suede. “New Balance 991” branding is embroidered at the top of the tongue over a crisp white cotton base, complemented by flat laces of the same shade. Contrasting the clean details, gray paneling appears along the upper collars, heel counter and toebox in a mix of mesh and nubuck, while New Balance’s “N” logo is stamped at the sidewalls over a dark olive section. Below it is a curved pumpkin-toned mudguard that’s been reinforced with double-stitched seams. All of these details sit atop an articulated midsole that’s been equipped with ABZORB cushioning technology for optimal support.

The New Balance 991 “Green” is currently available at LN-CC for $208 USD.
