Key Features: The shoe is classic New Balance to its core, utilizing staple materials such as rich suede, mesh underlays, reflective silver 3M and grey pebble accents to give the 992 a fresh new look, while still maintaining the timeless familiarity NB is so well known for.
Release Date: September 12
Buy: Exclusively at Packer Shoes
Editor’s Notes: New Balance has been on a roll in 2020 (but really for the past 18 months), releasing incredibly high-quality collaborations on all-new models such as the 327, as well as classics such as the 992. Following collabs with Kith, Joe FreshGoods, JJJJound, and WTAPS, New Jersey-based sneaker boutique Packer Shoes now gets to try its hand on the New Balance 992.
The result — as we have come to expect from New Balance and its partners — is exquisite. The sneaker features a brown and cream color scheme with reflective 3M detailing, which combine for a classic and easy-to-style look. The sneaker will be released exclusively at Packer Shoes on September 12. No word yet on whether a wider release at other retailers will follow (as has been the case with other collaborations in the past). Stay tuned for updates.
