New Balance is the footwear brand on the tip of everyone’s toes following almost three years of big-hitting releases, and now even its GR pairs — such as the 992 silhouette — are proving to be fan favorites. Now, NB has dropped the 992 in “Grey/Blue/Teal,” a colorway that can see you through summer and undoubtedly into the months to come thanks to its combination of stormy and bright details.
Constructed from a base of blue mesh and pigskin suede overlays, the 992 seen here is effectively split into three sections. At the top we find a tongue and heel that combines black suede with grey mesh and a dark grey lining, while the mid-panel is dominated by a light grey suede segment that houses the reflective-trimmed “N” emblem in the middle. Teal suede cut-outs add shape and definition to the pair on the mid, while dark grey suede appears once more towards the bottom, wrapping around from the toe and mudguard to the heel where a “USA” badge has been added.
Contrasting all of this are the bright yellow laces that match the yellow New Balance-branded heel clip and the blue ABZORB forefoot plug that’s planted inside the white midsole unit. A clear ABZORB plug hits up the heel, and a grey outsole rounds out the pair.
Altogether, the colors make for a pair that’s bright and fun but not too daring, meaning these will be easily pairable with a multitude of looks. Check out the New Balance 992 “Grey/Blue/Teal” above, and pick up a pair now from Concepts’ website for $175 USD.
