More New Balance 992s are coming this year, and we could not be more excited. This week, Canadian blog and design studio JJJJound showed off their latest colorway, which coats the retro runner in stunning shades of brown.

blog and design studio JJJJound is not the most commonplace brand name among sneakerheads, but then again, calling it a brand would not do them justice. Founded by Justin Saunders in 2006, JJJJound began simply as a mood board, giving Saunders a space to share his creative vision and ideas. The blog section of JJJJound quickly gained steam, allowing the website to evolve even further into a design studio, where Saunders and team have spent the last 10+ years delivering high-quality iterations of basics, offering everything from crewneck hoodies to candles and writing stationery. Every so often, JJJJound also teams up with a major footwear brand on a release, and they are always a hit. This time, that brand is New Balance, and man, are we excited. JJJJound first teased a project with the New Balance 992 earlier this, showing off an entirely forest green color scheme. Now, it appears they have a second colorway to add to this mix, one that paints the fan-favorite runner in shades of muted brown. From the mesh base layer to the suede overlays, the shoe is brown through and through, save for black ‘N’ logos and a plain white midsole.


The latest project from Canada’s JJJJound and Boston’s New Balance has not yet been announced for release, though they are expected to launch sometime in the coming weeks from their online shop. The brown-tinted New Balance 992 will release exclusively from JJJJound, though it is unclear whether or not it will be joined by the matching green pair. Check out the teaser image from Instagram below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more New Balance release news.
