New Balance’s Future-Thinking 991v2 Keeps It Classic With Black

A full quarter of a calendar year has passed since since the debut of the New Balance 991v2. Does it have what it takes to enter the zeitgeist of iconic NB silhouettes?

As it stands, the strategy behind the model’s ongoing launch is clear: drop the classic colorways typically associated with the 99X line, with the occasional collaboration sprinkled in. Already delivered via cooperative projects with outerwear mavens Stone Island and Amsterdam’s Patta, NB is encouraging the 991v2 to all via the readily available in-line drops that feature the mainstay classic grey and navy. With black set to join the mix, the 991v2 catalog continues to expand, with more standard colors set to release.

The 991v2 is indeed a high-end product packed with contemporary tech; priced at $250, the New Balance 991v2 keeps to the original DNA of the iconic 991 while ensuring daily wearability via the new FuelCell tech. If you geek out on modernized classics, then look out for this black colorway very soon.
