The New Balance 991

Released in 2001, the New Balance 991 became a symbol of performance and craftsmanship as part of the 99x series. Taking inspiration from traditional running shoes, the 991 is a lifestyle sneaker that has become a statement in athletic and casual footwear.

'Made in UK' status is a significant part of the 991, which is crafted in New Balance's Flimby factory, where quality and tradition are paramount. A key factor in its enduring popularity among wearers is its signature ABZORB cushioning technology, which ensures a comfortable stride.

With time, the New Balance 991 has evolved, adopting subtle design changes and material upgrades, while maintaining its classic aesthetic.

New Balance 991 Design

New Balance 991 is characterized by several key design elements that blend form and function. Its durable, breathable, and luxurious upper combines premium mix of suede and mesh. Large, reflective N logos enhance visibility in low-light conditions as well as brand identification. Lace-up closures provide a secure, customised fit, while the tongue and collar add extra comfort.

A high-quality rubber outsole offers excellent stability and traction on a variety of surfaces. The 991's ABZORB midsole and ENCAP midsole make it ideal for athletic activities as well as everyday wear. All these elements combine to produce a sneaker that epitomises New Balance's commitment to quality.

Collaborations on the 991

Stone Island and JJJJound are the two most renowned collaborators on the New Balance 991 design. The Stone Island x New Balance 991v2 'Black Olive' - Made in UK is part of the autumn 2023 release in a Charcoal/Olive colorway.

With a distinct blend of high-end fashion and athletic functionality, Stone Island reimagines the classic New Balance silhouette using its signature design language.

A fusion of JJJJound's signature style with those of New Balance's 991, the JJJJound x New Balance UK 991 'Grey' is known for its minimalist and sleek aesthetic available in both men's and women's sizes.
