New Balance has been on an undeniable hot streak over the course of 2020, and the 992 is a large piece of that success. Now, the silhouette that was once a favorite of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has surfaced in a duo of summer-ready yellow colorways: one that relies on a golden shade, the other of which taps a neon hue.
Although each uses its own mixture of tones, both abide by similar colorblocking schemes that seem to branch out from black suede mudguards. The gold pair keeps its toebox and quarters entirely monochromatic, then uses red eyestays and laces to offset its black tongue. On the other hand, the neon pair intersperses grey on its toeboxes and quarters while adding a dash of black to the midfoot N logo and keeping eyestays/laces a uniform shade. Heel hits nod to a made-in-the-USA construction, and tongue badges supply a final dash of branded flair. Both offer up a white and grey midsole equipped with blue ABZORB cushioning to complete the look.
This duo of New Balance 992s is set to release at retailers like 43einhalb later this summer. The MSPR for each is set at $220 USD.
