Stone Island has revealed a detailed look at their upcoming New Balance 991v2 collaboration. Alongside boasting a subtly updated upper — which draws inspiration from latticed metal — changes out its usual tech for FuelCell cushioning. The collaboration will be available exclusively at Stone Island stores and StoneIsland.com on Oct. 4th (Oct. 9th in mainland China). A global launch will then follow on Oct 18th via NewBalance.com.
Hot on the heels of the FuelCell C_1’s debut, Stone Island and New Balance have teased a first look at their next collaborative project.
Unlike their previous work with the Tokyo Design Studio, Stone Island’s newest collaboration with New Balance evolves the legacy of an existing icon: the 991. That’s not to say, however, that this isn’t an entirely new silhouette, as the two have effectively crafted the world’s first 991v2. Save for a blurred glimpse of its outsole, the model’s design is still very much under wraps. But according to Sole Retriever, who caught a look at CAD images of the shoe, the design will feature a black suede upper accented with dark grey mesh, signature Stone Island branding, and several instances of 3M paneling.
The Stone Island x New Balance 991v2 is expected to drop very soon. Release information as well as official images should surface shortly, so sit tight and stay tuned for further updates.
In other news, Drake’s Nike NOCTA Air Force 1 Low is expected to be releasing again in kids’ sizes.
