Editor’s Notes: Following a year of clean colorways and must-have collaborations by the likes of JJJJound and WTAPS, the New Balance 992 was back with a bang in 2021. The above purple colorway was initially released at retailers such as Asphaltgold in early January. Now, Italian mainstay One Block Down, is set to release the “Purple” New Balance 992 on January 28, giving NB heads a second chance at the classy colorway.

The New Balance 992 was one of the biggest retro releases of 2020 and don't expect the brand to slow down on the production of the model quite yet. The on-hand purple pair is made in the US from premium suede and mesh, and features an ABZORB midsole for unmatched cushioning, as well as a durable Ndurance outsole.
