As summer wanes and the crisp air of fall begins to surface, New Balance As winter's chill sets in, New Balance is poised to release its "Urban Winter" pack, featuring two distinct iterations of the 991 model, both crafted with meticulous attention to detail in the brand's Flimby factory in Cumbria, UK. The pack, set to release on December 7th, showcases New Balance's prowess in merging functional design with aesthetic charm, perfect for the colder months.
The first colorway in the "Urban Winter" pack presents a blend of pelican and island fossil hues, creating a neutral yet engaging base. Accents of roasted cashew on the toebox, collar, and tongue add warmth and depth to the design. The signature “N” logos and “991” branding complement this harmonious combination of shades. The shoe's composition of mesh, pigskin suede, and leather offers a luxurious feel and ensures durability and comfort in winter weather conditions. The ABZORB midsole and black rubber outsole round out the design, prioritizing both style and practicality.
Complementing this is the second colorway, which delves into a heritage-inspired theme. It features a mix of light green uppers grey and black suede overlays, bringing to mind the early 80s era of New Balance's design philosophy. The light grey midsole and black outsole maintain the shoe's winter readiness while adding a touch of vintage charm.
The New Balance 991 "Urban Winter" collection will be released on NewBalance.com on December 7th; Pairs will retail for $260 each.
