Although the beginnings of an entirely new era, the New Balance 991v2 doesn’t stray all too far from its roots. Alongside boasting the MADE in UK construction we’ve come to expect from the sneaker, the model features a very familiar, albeit slightly tweaked shape. The more notable updates include the change to FuelCell cushioning and the additional reflective hits arranged throughout the upper.
Under Stone Island’s direction, the New Balance 991v2 takes on a look akin to industrial spaces. Consisting almost entirely of dark, muted tones, the colorway applies black to the nubuck overlays and olive to the trims and latticed mesh underneath. Grey, then, dresses not only the sole unit but also the “N” logo and the Stone Island patch affixed to the tongue.
