Original Story (07/24/20): Multi-time collaborators Packer Shoes and New Balance have joined forces again on one of the hottest models of the year: the New Balance 992.
The 992 has already seen a few high-profile releases with eclectic and incredible brands like WTAPS and JJJJound this year, and Packer’s sneak peek of the model seems to indicate a collaboration just as slick and well-crafted as its recent company. Posted by Victor Kan, brand director and buyer for Packer, the up-close teaser reveals a muted honey-brown suede atop off-white durable mesh. This falls in line with the aforementioned 992 releases of this year so far; all have utilized subtle but rich earth tones for a versatile and classic model that takes up a space none other could in your sneaker rotation.
