What we say: The classic gray New Balance 992 has arrived at Highsnobiety Shop. The model, which celebrated its 15th anniversary last year along with several prominent collaborations, has become one of New Balance’s most popular heritage models in recent years.
While the 2020 collaborations have been incredibly successful, nothing beats a simple gray New Balance trainer. The brand has always had a cult following because of the guaranteed quality right out of the box. At the time, it wasn’t so much about how New Balance sneakers looked, but rather how they performed. The new generation of sneakerheads are obviously drawn to New Balance’s cutting edge marketing and collaboration strategy, but there is still a large contingent that prefers New Balance over other brands for its no-frills colourways.
The latest New Balance release from Highsnobiety Shop includes a range of 550s, two colorways of the 725 and the gray above 992. The 550 should sell out pretty quickly, being the brand’s new hype shoe, but if you’re looking for something more timeless, the classic gray 992 should be at the top of your list. Buy it below.
