What We’re Saying: The classic gray New Balance 992 has arrived at Highsnobiety Shop. The model, which celebrated its 15th-anniversary last year to the tune of several high-profile collaborations, has become one of New Balance’s most popular heritage models in recent years.
While 2020’s collaborations were incredibly successful, nothing beats a simple, gray New Balance sneaker. The brand has always had a cult following because of the guaranteed quality straight out of the box. Back in the day, it wasn’t so much about how New Balance sneakers looked, but much rather how they performed. The newer generation of sneakerheads is obviously attracted by New Balance’s industry-leading marketing and collaboration strategy, but there is still a large contingent that prefers New Balance to other brands for its no-frills colorways.
Highsnobiety Shop’s latest New Balance drop comprises a range of 550s, two colorways of the 725, and the above gray 992. The 550s are expected to 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 top of your list. Shop it below.
