New Balance readies the 991 in ‘Castlerock’
Launching at Aphrodite on the 20th of October…
One of the most iconic silhouettes of all time, the New Balance 991 Trainer offers a truly timeless silhouette and unparalleled styling versatility. While the shoe has worn thousands of colours over the years, it truly rocks Grey quite like no other, and the new Castlerock colourway is exemplary of that.
These kicks are made in New Balance’s Flimby factory so you already know that the craftsmanship is going to be spot on. The upper is constructed using a breathable mesh toebox that finds itself being encapsulated by premium suede and nubuck overlays. New Balance branding can be found in the form of a 3M reflective ‘N’ logo, while further branding is embroidered to the tongue of the shoe.
As always the quality upper is placed atop of one of New Balance’s tech filled soles, in this instance they’ve opted for an Abzorb midsole to offer cushioning and compression resistance, basically they’re incredibly comfortable. (I mean, aren’t all New Balance) The two-tone sole is joined to a rubber outsole for added durability and increased traction while translucent windows allow you to peek into the technology housed inside.
Lets run back through… Dad trainer style, check. Grey colourway, check. Super comfortable, check. Versatile, check.
Yeah, I don’t think that New Balance could make a more ‘New Balance’ Trainer if they tried! Dropping on the 20/10/22 you can pick up a pair at Aphrodite where they retail for £209.00
