New Balance’s 991 silhouette has been popping up in plenty of new colorways this year, in celebration of the silhouette’s 20th anniversary. Today, we are taking a closer look at a new Made in England pair, decorated in stunning earth tones.

The sneaker community is still largely fixated on New Balance 992 anniversary celebration from 2020, waiting with bated breath for the latest in the Boston brand’s excellent string of collaboration and special projects from the past 12 months. However, fans of the brand will also be quick to note that 2021 marks 20 years of another classic 99X family member, the 991. Luckily for us, New Balance has been releasing low-key hits with the 991 all year long, crafting excellent new colorways in the brand’s Flimby, England production facility. The latest in a line of strong releases from Flimby casts the 991 in a palette of smooth earth tones, beginning with a brown mesh base layer before adding suede overlays in brown, gold, olive green, and sand.


New Balance’s latest colorway of their Made in England 991 running silhouette, this time dressed in a beautiful palette of earth tones,  released quietly earlier this week, making its debut through Japan’s United Arrows store. As usual, the premium version of the fan-favorite sneaker comes with an elevated price tag of $265, releasing globally from both New Balance and select retailers soon. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more New Balance release news.

UPDATE 9/30/21: After some confusing release dates and early drops, the “Earth” colorway of New Balance’s Made in England 991 is currently available from SneakerDistrict in a wide variety of sizes, and will continue to arrive at other retailers in the coming weeks.
