Patta has unveiled its New Balance 991v2 via official marketing material. The latest joint-effort from the European label and North American institution imagines the New Balance 991’s sequel in eye-catching “Pickle Beet” and “Sea Moss” color schemes. By comparison, Patta’s first take on the Made in UK silhouette’s predecessor from 2021 favored muted hits of pink and brown.
According to the Dutch imprint, its NB 991v2 “pays homage to the original silhouette while embracing the thrill of innovation. To this front, the sneaker’s nubuck, leather, and mesh upper receive a refreshing color update. FuelCell-infused sole units follow suit, bringing New Balance’s marquee foam to the forefront. A “Metallic Silver” badge on the tongue features co-branding, cementing the growing partnership within the record books.
Patta’s “Sea Moss” pair will launch exclusively through Patta chapter stores and online (patta.nl) on December 1st (1pm CET/7am EST). The “Pickled Beet” style will see a wider, global launch on both December 1st and December 8th (newbalance.com and select retailers around the world).
ORIGINAL STORY published November 11th, 2023
In early October it was revealed that New Balance would be expanding upon the heralded 991 with the silhouette’s first-ever evolution in over 20 years. Alongside Stone Island, the 991v2 received a warm welcome this past Fall. Amongst a reserved slate of inline releases, the New Balance 991v2 is cementing its bid for the brand’s ulterior everyday lifestyle staple alongside an upcoming collaboration alongside Patta.
Teaming back up with the Boston-based brand after a year-long hiatus, Patta will be expanding its collaborative palette through a volt and purple accented version of the New Balance 991v2. Much like the florescent green hues that animated the two entities’ New Balance 990v3 solution, a reminiscent neon hue strikes the laces and the visible pockets of cushioning within the sole unit. Complemented by a clad grey mesh base layer and greyscale-tinted heel, the nubuck-constructed upper overlays are doused in a rich plum tone that stretches to the vamp and heel tab, continuing the Amsterdam brand’s affinity for multi-color treatments.
