The 99x series has always been a NB fan-favourite, but within that group, the 999 has garnered its own dedicated following thanks to its aggressive ABZORB sole design and versatile upper paneling that can elevate a good colour palette to greatness.
New Balance has followed up its Made in USA 999 collection with Concepts with another premium American-made version of the silhouette, this time applying some playful colour on the heel section while keeping it strictly beige at the front.
The New Balance Made in USA offerings are known for the use of premium materials, and this one is no different with high quality suede to construct the entire upper, with ventilation in the way of some perforated panels across the toe box and collar. The combination of turquoise, orange and green stacked behind beige doesn't seem like it would work on paper, but this execution is a pretty striking result.
The New Balance M999CSS is available now from select NB retailers including CONCEPTS.
