The last time <a href=”https://www.patta.nl/” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>Patta </a>and <a href=”https://www.newbalance.com/men/” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>New Balance</a> teamed up they released a 920. Now their first sneaker in 2021 together uses the New Balance 991 model. It’s got a look inspired by terracotta clay and uses suede to mix in the colors of a light peach to a grey and jade green mix. Lighter tan overlays also make their presence felt through the overlays attached to the forefoot and heels as well as the lower heel mold. The patta branding on the sneaker is noticeably subtle with only a embrodiered text hit towards the back heel.

Retail price for the pair hasn’t been confirmed yet, but these are slated to drop at the end of the month on January 29. Look for retailers who carry Patta like <a href=”https://www.endclothing.com/ca/brands/patta” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>END </a>to have the sneaker for release.
