We’ve seen hybrids from New Balance before, but they’re taking the iconic 1500 upper and putting it on the 991 sole unit to bring fans the New Balance 1591.
The 1591 upper uses an array of raw and synthetic materials, including nubuck, suede, leather, pigskin, and mesh, which repurpose 74% of materials from surplus stock. The array of maroons and mustard yellows contrast against the grey mesh and different hues of blue used on the lower portion of the shoe. Combine that with the brown nubuck on the collar and balance out the 1591 and the classic N logo stitched on the side paneling finishes off this new silhouette.
The 1591 uses the tried and true NB 991 midsole and outsole, which is equipped with ABZORB in the forefoot and heel for all-day comfort in its classic white and grey. This new model is also a part of the Made in UK collection which uses premium materials and is crafted in New Balance’s Flimby, UK factory.
