Over the past few years, the New Balance 992 has drawn the attention of countless fashion enthusiasts after often being dismissed as a “dad shoe” in the decade immediately following its 2006 debut. And while the Steve Jobs-approved model is still a favorite among fathers, iterations like this maroon and grey one continue delivering impressive, non-greyscale options to those looking for just that.
Spec-wise, this pair is identical to KITH‘s forthcoming “Steel Blue” series, but color palettes differ. Premium pig suede covers the bulk of this 992‘s uppers, with its wine-like hue also overtaking the mesh base that peeks out through various overlays. Profile “N” logos, like accompanying panels across the forefoot, midfoot, and heel, indulge in a grey hue synonymous with the Boston-based brands footwear. Elsewhere, laces and remaining New Balance branding lighten up the color scheme in white. Down below, this iteration of the 992 stays true-to-original-form with its off-white/white ENCAP and ABZORB dual-midsole and black rubber outsole.
Full release details are still unknown, but this maroon and grey 992 is likely to launch on NewBalance.com soon as it continues its first retro run since disappearing in 2010. For now, enjoy a closer look at the pair ahead.
In related news, the New Balance 327 is slated to launch in a colorway nodding to Pride Month 2020.
