Continuing the 991‘s 20th anniversary celebration, New Balance has released the beloved runner-turned-lifestyle silhouette in a soft pink and gray colorway. Constructed in the UK at the brand’s famed Flimby factory, this pretty-in-pink 991 supplies seasonally appropriate style for any NB fanatic.

A soft pastel pink coats the upper’s mesh base and supple suede overlays. It’s then accented from heel to toe by gray embellishments, which appear on the toebox, at the bottom of the throat, around the collar and on the lace keeper and and tongue. Gray is most notable on the quarter panel and heel however, thanks to a signature N logo rimmed in white on the former and a 991 graphic on the latter.

White collar lining adds airy detail, and down below ABZORB midsoles are split between a white forefoot and an earthy gray heel. Durable black and gray rubber outsoles complete the look.

This pink, gray and white made in the UK New Balance 991 is available now at retailers like Sneaker Politics, and is priced at a handsome $250 USD.

Elsewhere in the world of footwear, Aimé Leon Dore founder Teddy Santis has been named the creative director of New Balance’s MADE in USA line — a role in which he’ll oversee brand direction, design and marketing.
