There was a time in my life when my sense of happiness was directly correlated with the number of trainers I had in my possession. Luckily I grew up and realized hooking up with girls and doing drugs is a lot more fun. But there’s still a part of me that’s drawn to the odd trainer here and there and there’s no better example than this lush New Balance 991. I’m a big fan of the overall shape, especially the toe box area, which look slightly thinner than the Steve Jobs approved 992 models. But what really stands out for me is the colourway, navy with hints of 3M grey and two-tone midsole. It’s the perfect shoe.
