New Balance has tapped Stray Rats to deliver a two-shoe collab dropping soon.
The Boston-based sportswear brand has announced on its release calendar that the Miami-based streetwear label is dropping two new iterations of the 991 silhouette before month’s end.
The Stray Rats x New Balance 991 styles are made in the sportswear brand’s Flimby Factory in the UK and each pair is dressed in a blend of bold hues and neutral tones predominantly on the pigskin suede upper combined with nubuck overlays and reflective underlay panels. Both pairs are also embroidered with ‘//stray’ branding at the lateral forefoot along with co-branded footbeds, and an Abzorb-cushioned midsole for comfort.
“The new Stray Rats MADE in UK 991 employs the influential streetwear label’s subculture informed abandon and strong use of color to create a playful take on the 991’s aggressive visual stance,” New Balance wrote for the product description of Stray Rats’ collab.
The Stray Rats x New Balance 992 collabs will be released on Dec. 17 at Newbalance.com at 10 a.m. ET and at select New Balance retailers. Each pair will come with a $250 price tag.
