The silhouette — which marked its 20th anniversary earlier this year with a signature grey release — was initially released as running sneaker back in 2001 thanks to its array of then-leading technologies, most notably its ABZORB cushioning.
Over two decades on and the silhouette remains near-on untouched. The upper, doused with “Blue/Grey” panels of nubuck and mesh, alongside pops of reflective detailing is decorated with embroidered branding on the heel and tongue, and sits atop a rugged grey outsole.
Finished with the archetypal “N” logo on its sidewall, the 991 comes equipped with a selection of laces which offers the choice to customise.
New Balance’s “Blue/Grey” 991 is available to buy now from Aphrodite for £179 (approximately $245 USD).
Elsewhere in the world of footwear, Dr. Martens and Suicoke have unveiled their all-new DM MURA silhouette.
