The New Balance 991 has become a mainstay in the Boston based brands rotation, and for good reason. Debuted in 2001, the 991 silhouette joined the brands 99x series as it arrived filled with innovative technology, that had previously, never been used. The style was the first to feature New Balance's proprietary N-Durance rubber outsole, which enhanced the trainers durability by reducing everyday abrasion. It was also the first to see the use of Abzorb technology in the fore-foot as well as the heel, providing ample shock resistance resulting in a smoother ride, something that the New Balance 991 is now renowned for.
The upper of the 991 trainer is uniquely versatile too, with it arriving in an array of fabrics including mesh, suede, leather and even glow-in-the-dark textiles and 3M reflective materials. Not only does the model adorn the textural play effortlessly, but it looks stunning in a wide range of colours, from deep greys and urban black's to neon greens and bold oranges, its a style that wears colour as well as it does a more refined tone.
Most New Balance 991 Trainers are proudly crafted in the brand's Flimby factory. Set in the North of England, the factory hires skilled local workers who hand cut, sew and assemble over 28,000 pairs of quality trainers every week. With the upmost taken to produce your trainers, you can rest assured that they will last as long as they stay in style, which is well... forever.
