New Balance Revive the 992 and it Deserves All the HypeRelease: 19 February 2020
It is well documented around these parts how revered the New Balance 992 is. The origin story should be an essential chapter of modern sneaker lore: introduced in 2006 to mark the company’s 100th anniversary, the 992 was NB’s flagship. And now, it’s back.
OG NB heads will once again experience plushness above and below foot, or perhaps it’ll be the first time for newcomers to the brand’s top tier Made in USA silhouette.
This plushness is achieved by sticking to NB’s proven pigskin suede and mesh upper combo for durability and breathability, combined with the ABZORB SBS midsole. By now, the tech is over a decade old, but it still holds its own today!
The agonising 14-year wait is over, as Hype DC have taken delivery of the 992 in OG grey livery. Pick up a pair from their webstore or brick-and-mortar locations now, or face another potential decade-plus-long wait. It looks like they're sold out now – but keep an eye out for any potential restocks.
