New Balance's evolution of its esteemed 991 model into the 991v2 has garnered attention for its blend of classic aesthetics and modern updates. The 991v2 has already made waves in the sneaker community, with notable collaborations like the one with Stone Island, a series of standout colorways from Patta, and distinct inline releases in Navy, Black, and Grey. This year, the range is further expanded with the New Balance 991v2 Made in UK Coco Mocca, a sophisticated and earth-toned addition to the lineup.
The Coco Mocca colorway of the New Balance 991v2 is a testament to the brand's commitment to quality and style. The sneaker features a harmonious blend of tan, grey, and cream hues, meticulously crafted using premium materials. The tan sections of the sneaker are adorned with plush pigskin suede, offering a luxurious touch and durable finish. The grey woven mesh makes up the base and tongue, providing breathability and a comfortable fit.
True to the 991v2 design, the sneaker showcases traditional branding elements. The tongue tag proudly displays the "Made in England" mark, a nod to the sneaker's high-quality craftsmanship. Additionally, V2 branding is strategically placed on the tongue tag and heel tab, emphasizing the model's updated identity. The iconic New Balance "N" logo adorns the midfoot in grey, complemented by grey nubuck overlays on the toebox, subtly contrasting the overall design.
The midsole of the New Balance 991v2 Made in UK Coco Mocca is engineered for performance and comfort. It features a grey and white foam construction incorporating FuelCell cushioning technology, ensuring a responsive and comfortable ride. This midsole is paired with a durable black and grey rubber outsole, offering reliable traction and completing the sneaker's refined aesthetic.
