First Look: The Stray Rats x New Balance 991

Julian Consuegra’s Stray Rats continue to drag the sneaker industry into the underground, the down and dirty New York City label recently linking up with New Balance for the NB574, NB827 and NB990v3.

Stray Rats are now circling the New Balance 991, founder Consuegra sharing a teaser via his Instagram account this week.

Bringing aesthetics every Stray Rats fan is now accustomed to, the Joker-like purple and green palette is again oozing across the NB991, the 3M reflective detailing again blasted across the uppers.

Always a welcome site, the New Balance 991 has been an indomitable presence this year, United Arrows, Patta, and Slam Jam all having a crack at the iconic silhouette. Straight from the manufacturing stalwart in Flimby, England, this Stray Rats collaboration is sure to have sneakerheads scuttling from the woodwork, the NB991 looking like it’s again built in its premium nubuck and suede. Down below, classic ABZORB soles give you all the utility you’ll ever need.

No release details yet, but make sure to keep it locked to Sneaker Freaker for updates.
