The New Balance 991 is celebrating its 20th birthday this year. Following a collaboration with Patta, the model is now returning in two grey anniversary colorways as a tribute to its OG release.

The 99X series first debuted in 1984 and soon became New Balance’s flagship line. Seventeen years later, the 991 joined the lineup, eventually leading to the 992, 993, 990v4 and 990v5. In this anniversary iteration of the 991, the mesh uppers give way to various gray overlays. Nods to the birthday appear on the heel on top of reflective paneling and on an anniversary label behind the tongue. Signature “N” logos, “2001” stitching and ABZORB cushioning that peeks through the off-white midsole sport the charcoal color; displayed with emerald in an alternative colorway, believed to be a women’s exclusive.

The Made In England New Balance 991 “20th Anniversary” is set to release within the coming weeks at select retailers and newbalance.com, with a February 26th release spotted on Fenom’s webstore. Catch a detailed look at the pairs below.
