With marathon season now officially upon us, New Balance has unveiled its latest Made in UK 991 designed in collaboration with London-based running club Run the Boroughs.
Founded in 2019, Run the Boroughs is a collective that caters for all runners of all experience and abilities, which explores the lesser run boroughs of the capital — as well as the more trodden streets.
Now, teaming up with New Balance, the pair introduce its own take on the MiUK 991, drawing inspiration from the dark concrete roads and rain clouds of London, and the marathon itself.
Comprising a mix of suede, nubuck, textured leather and mesh, the MiUK 991 boasts the brand’s archetypal ABZORB cushioning system under foot, while 3M detailing enhances visibility throughout the darker months.
The Run The Boroughs x New Balance x London Marathon MiUK 991 is set to drop towards the end of the month, although in the meantime you can enter a competition to win a pair via the Run the Borough’s Instagram account.
