The Base of the Latest New Balance 991 Is Made of Harris Tweed
The New Balance 991 has received a lot of love in 2021. Several stunning and special colourways have been created for the silhouette, but that's not all. New Balance is now experimenting further by using a new material and combining it with muted hits.
The made-in-UK sneaker is an exquisite shoe for sneakerheads, thanks to the new fabric. For the base, New Balance takes inspiration from the rugged landscape of the Scottish islands of the Outer Hebrides, by specifically using this elegant Harris tweed. Other details then push the New Balance 991 further into the spotlight.
Navy blue, brown, and white make up the premium Harris Tweed base, which is incorporated into the collar, midsection, and toebox. A rich chocolate brown covers the soft leather, giving the sneaker a British touch, while the overlays are made of nubuck.
