New Balance follows on from the recently-debuted 991 “Nu Block” with the release of a regal 991 “Bluesman.” The pair adopts a velvety smooth pigskin suede upper sporting four shades of blue, and combines this luxurious Made in England touch with 3M detailing.
The New Balance 991 “Bluesman” also features leather overlays on the forefoot and on the rear-quarter. As this pair is part of the Made in England division, New Balance has left no stone unturned when it comes to detail — finishing the pair with white embroidery on the tongue, an embroidered oval logo on the heel, and a plush off white-hued lining.
Rounding off the pair is its sole unit, which features ABZORB cushioning technology in the midsole and a deep-treaded outsole for traction. A final nod to its roots appears inside the shoe with an interior tongue tag noting its Made in England credentials.
