New Balance's White Leather 992 is Giving Peak Dad VibesRelease: 7 December 2021
New Balance have made themselves into a culture-defining powerhouse over the last two-odd years, collaborating with A-listers like Salehe Bembury and BAPE while also making obscure silhouettes like the 550 mainstream favourites. Even as they continue to expand, influence and create, they still keep an eye on their customers who simply desire a sturdy, comfortable piece of footwear by releasing styles like this all-white leather 992.
This shoe gives peak dad vibes, thanks to its ultra-simple, ultra-premium white leather construction with a smattering of silver accents, a change from standard 992s as the model usually utilises a mixture of mesh and suede on its upper. The design is comfortable as well, thanks to NB's famed ABZORB cushioning system. It's the type of shoe that could be seen mowing the lawn, taking a walk around the neighbourhood, or pounding the mean streets of SoHo – after all, New Balance has proudly stated that their shoes are worn by supermodels in London and dads in Ohio alike!
If you're a real-life dad (or if you're just looking to get your dad style on), this white leather 992 is available now via retailers like Sneakersnstuff.
