Though New Balance has transcended its status as a dad shoe, the brand’s impact is oft overlooked in the women’s department. The 991 silhouette in particular has evolved since being first introduced decades ago to become a hit for the athleisure and normcore crowds. Via size? for Women, the shoe gets a noticeable revamp in two new colorways — cappuccino and black — worth adding to any lifestyle sneaker rotation.
Crafted in New Balance’s UK factory, premium suede and nubuck wrap the upper with tonal mesh underlays throughout. Reflective accents on the ‘N’ branding and other elements complete the “Made in England,” available now at size? for $185 USD.
