Featuring a truly season-appropriate earth-toned palette of blacks, browns and tans, these 991s combine sturdy textiles, soft suede and supple leather on their layered upper for a luxurious look. “CMXCI” is embroidered on the tongue — a clever detail that sharp-eyed sneaker lovers may realize is the Roman numeral styling for “991” — and much more readily apparent NB hits are present on the midfoot and heel as well.
Down below, a two-tone ABZORB midsole split between grey on the heel and white on the forefoot provides classic comfort. The outsole then offers the shoe with its moniker, thanks to a rich all-over camo print that cleverly works “N” logos into its traction pattern. A special silver dog tag-style badge rounds things off.
A release date hasn’t yet been announced for these elegant 991s, but you can expect them at retailers like 43einhalb this fall for € 189.95 EUR (approximately $208 USD). Furthermore, considering the retailer and dog-tag have given this sneaker a nickname of “Camo Pack,” it’s safe to say we’ll see some additional colorways with this style in mind.
