Paperboy Paris Link With New Balance on a Tasty 992Release: 19 June 2021
Parisian eatery Paperboy are known for two things: tasty food, and even tastier collaborations! And now, the restaurant has been tapped by New Balance to rework the 992 in a mouth-watering colour combo, kicking the year off for the fan-favourite silhouette. First coming to light a few days ago through a cheeky cartooned Instagram post, the sneaker has now been official revealed. They didn’t spare any time, either - the release details have already come through, and they’re dropping this week.
From their first teaser post, we can clearly see that the colourway has been inspired by chickens and/or eggs. The construction is on point as well: white mesh underlays make way for matching white leather overlays and a clean hit of pebbled leather on the rear. Off-white suede overlays give that aesthetic touch, while yellow eyestays (representing yolk) draw your attention. Rounding out the whole colab, Paperboy make their mark using their signature logo on the heel.
Is the Paperboy x New Balance 992 making you hungry? If it is, then you must know that this is an in-store exclusive at their Paris location. It’ll be dropping on January 30. For those living outside of Paris, we hear rumbles that a global release is rumoured to be in the works. We’ll keep you updated.
