From 990 upward, New Balance has some of the strongest lifestyle trainers on the market in suedes of obvious quality. After bringing back the 992 with the help of some KITH exclusives and alluringly simple tonal colorways, the Boston-based imprint is touring the world with its 991 silhouette yet again, doing so with the Made in England construction that is always well-appreciated from dedicated fans. Sleek yet at the same time characteristic, the model has arrived with a dash of color as part of a “Nu Block” theme, adding in blues to a contrasting mix of grays and red to an assortment of earth tones. The latter, which favors militaristic and natural hits, uses sultry olives as a backdrop for its reflective “N” logo while tinting down saturation by way of faded grey towards the heel or creams just up front. The warm tone then separates only on the lower half in the exact fashion as its neutral alternate, though the scheme favors lightened indigos and dark navy. Grab a detailed look at both here and find them making their way to a host of retailers right now.
