After releasing in the US and Europe earlier this year, the New Balance 992 “Multi-Color” is now set to hit Asian retailers. Ahead of its Eastern drop, HYPEBEAST has provided a detailed set of images at the bright and bold sneaker, showcasing its vivid colorblocking and premium materials.
Orange, blue and green are stacked from bottom to top on the upper, with orange coating the mudguard and heel, blue the midfoot’s layered design and two-tone green on the eyestays and throat. Dashes of bright yellow are worked in on the quarter panel’s N logo, top eyestays, heel and tongue, the latter of which finalizes the top half with a dark navy shade. This appealing assemblage is built of a sporty mesh base and supple pig suede overlays.
Down below, white EVA midsoles add squishy red ABZORB cushioning on heel and forefoot alike, with a red heel clip adding more structure. Bright purple outsoles add one more shade into the shoe’s striking smorgasbord, finalizing a palette that’s somewhat reminiscent of Nike‘s classic Dunk Low “Viotech.”
New Balance has been on an undeniable tear to start 2020, thanks to clean in-line releases plus collaborations with WTAPS on the 992, No Vacancy Inn on the 650 and much more. The 992 “Multi-Color” will keep things rolling when it releases at Asian retailers like HBX on May 16, with a retail price of $220 USD.
