W991PAT to celebrate the 20th anniversary of NB 991
Just a few months after dropping their 1st sneaker collab with the NB 920, Patta and New Balance are back with a much more expected one: a twist on the New Balance 991 called M991Pat.
2020 wasn't a quiet year for New Balance, as the brand was named Athletic Brand of the Year at the 2020 FN Achievement Awards for dropping hit after hit and getting a lot of buzz among celebrities. And they don't intend to stop in 2021.
The 991 anniversary praises the first silhouette of the 99X series that included an Abzorb window in the forefoot and heel, as well as a streamlined toebox to add extra comfort for the performance running models.
The Amsterdam-based boutique Patta shared its vision with NB to celebrate the 20th anniversary in suede constructed kicks with a dusty pink, called Peach, and Light Petrol colorway. The embroidered Patta logo on the heel of the shoe contrasts with a white and cream outsole.
This premium take on the timeless silhouette also gets a light perspective due to the suede used in the pink hue, making the whole fit look comfy but classic.
They dropped in both men's and women's sizing on January 22th on Patta x New Balance's special webstore with a US$267 price tag, but hit global selected retails including Beams, Concepts, and DOE on Jan 29th.
