The New Balance 991 hasn’t been at the forefront of the brand’s dominant 2020, but it seems determined to change the narrative as it heads into 2021. Recently, the silhouette has emerged in a “Shy Pink” ensemble ostensibly part of a larger 20th anniversary release roster.
Debuted in 2001, the model was famously worn by the late Steve Jobs prior to the now-revered New Balance 992. Premium pig suede overlays rest atop a comfortable, mesh base, but the pair’s most defining feature is the midsole. While free of the “Shy Pink” tone that takes over this upcoming iteration’s upper, the robust Abzorb cushioning underfoot delivers a proposition that’s lasted the test of time. Its drab color palette allows the rose hue up-top revel that much more in the spotlight.
An official NewBalance.com release date is likely in the works, but this 991 is currently available for pre-order at select stockists. Enjoy a closer look at the eye-catching pair here below, and check out what else is next for New Balance when you’re done.
