New Balance has certainly set the bar high for itself this year after having a successful 2020 run, and it seems as though it will be sticking to the winning formula of pushing out more lifestyle runners for its fans. One being the Made-in-UK New Balance 991 whom after launching through a collaboration with Patta, is now being brought to the forefront for a brand new navy and red “Nu Block” Pack colorway.
For its base construction, pigskin suedes and tumbled leather materials flood its entirety. The former builds out the medial and lateral paneling in a dark navy, while the latter is evident across the various overlays that run across. A lighter-tinted navy tone outfits the mid-foot, while a red wine-esque hue tumbles onto the “N” logos, toe tips and mudguards. Collars are left untouched in white, while the back end which hosts the silhouette’s traditional reflective “991” hit is doused in a charcoal grey. From there, the nylon tongues contrast with all-white skins, and come prepared with navy blue laces and red branding.
ABZORB-cushioned midsoles split between white outers towards the forefoot and off-white along the rear, and come finished with a navy blue mold that’s glued to the back. All-black outsoles round out its design.
