The New Balance 991 Is One Cute Chunky Sneaker

Minimalist in pink.

New Balance is getting into the mood for spring with a refreshing 991 rework. The normcore shoe is a must-have for those who are into the dad sneaker trend. Featuring a low-top silhouette, the retro-looking runner has recently received a girly makeover in “Sand/Grey.”

On the upper, we see a mix of soft suede and canvas panels coming in various pink, rosy shades. New Balance’s signature “N” logo is embroidered on the side panel in white thread, while the 991 branding can be seen from the heel counter. The pastel color palette is complemented by a matching, soft pink lacing system. All these sit atop a statement-making, chunky trail sole that’s designed with Abzorb foam cushioning technology — talk about style meets functionality.

Priced at $204 USD, the New Balance 991 “Sand/Grey” colorway is now available for purchase at select retailers like NAKED. Let us know if this is a cop or a drop for you in the comments section below.

To see more from New Balance, check out its classic 574 silhouette accented by Swarovski crystals and satin laces.
