Patta has officially introduced its collaboration with New Balance, showcasing the all-new 991v2 model through their marketing materials. This latest joint venture between the European brand and the esteemed North American institution presents a visually striking color palette, featuring the captivating hues of "Pickle Beet" and "Sea Moss".
In contrast, Patta's initial interpretation of the previous iteration of the Made in UK silhouette in 2021 incorporated subtle hints of pink and brown.
In line with the Dutch brand's vision, the NB 991v2 pays tribute to its classic design while embracing a sense of excitement for new advancements. The sneaker's upper, made from a combination of nubuck, leather, and mesh, is given a vibrant color refresh.
The sole units are also infused with FuelCell technology, showcasing New Balance's signature foam. To solidify the strong partnership between the brands, a "Metallic Silver" badge with co-branding is placed on the tongue, leaving a mark in history.
Patta's latest shoe design, known as the "Sea Moss," will be available for purchase exclusively at Patta chapter stores and on their website (patta.nl) starting from December 1st at 1pm CET/7am EST.
The stylish "Pickled Beet" variation, on the other hand, will have a wider release globally, hitting shelves on both December 1st and December 8th. This second release will be available on newbalance.com as well as at select retailers worldwide.
New Balance made headlines in October when they announced plans to update their iconic 991 silhouette for the first time in two decades. The release of the New Balance 991v2, in collaboration with Stone Island, was met with great enthusiasm last autumn.
Despite a limited number of regular releases, the 991v2 is establishing itself as a must-have for those seeking a reliable and stylish everyday shoe. New Balance is also set to team up with Patta for an exciting upcoming collaboration, further solidifying the 991v2's status as a go-to choice for fashion-conscious individuals.
After a year-long break, Patta is joining forces once again with the Boston-based brand to expand their collaborative collection. This time, they are introducing a vibrant and eye-catching version of the New Balance 991v2, featuring accents of volt and purple.
Similar to their previous collaboration on the New Balance 990v3, which showcased fluorescent green shades, this new iteration showcases a neon hue on the laces and cushioning pockets of the sole. The shoe's design is further enhanced with a grey mesh base layer and a subtly tinted heel in shades of grey. The upper overlays, made from nubuck, are saturated in a deep plum color that extends to the vamp and heel tab, showcasing Patta's signature multi-color aesthetic.
The highly anticipated launch of the Patta x New Balance 991v2 is set to take place at the renowned HIP store in London. While we eagerly anticipate more information about the release, we can catch a glimpse of the sneakers in the exclusive images provided above.
When did New Balance 991 come out?
In the year 2001, New Balance introduces the 991, marking it as the forerunner to the 990v2. This shoe becomes the first of its kind from the Boston-based company to feature an ABZORB insert beneath both the forefoot and heel. The new and enhanced midsole design, along with its aerodynamic toe box and exceptional comfort, mirrors the qualities found in the broader range of performance running models from that era.
Does New Balance 991 use Pigskin?
Designed with both comfort and fashion in mind, the MADE UK 991 men's sneaker boasts a timeless ABZORB midsole that offers a plush cushioning experience. This version of our iconic sneaker showcases a premium pigskin, synthetic, and mesh upper, elevating its style to new heights.
