New Balance 992

The New Balance 99x-series is one of the most successful and enduring sneaker lines in NB history. One of our favorite models – the 992 – is thereby often linked to one special New Balance fan. It’s no secret that Steve Jobs was always seen in the very same high quality shoe: the »Made in USA« New Balance 992 in grey. Actually the legend claims that the original design concept actually came in a letter from Steve Jobs. He wrote to Davis because he was tired of wearing plain leather shoes and he wanted something “more sporty and hip”. He included a rough sketch of what he envisioned for the shoe and this formed the base that designers built the 99X series from.
