WOMFT? Review – New Balance x Patta 920
There were a lot of mixed feelings about this 920, new model by New Balance. All we can say is, the pictures did not do it justice. Until you have them in-hand and even better, on feet. The first collaboration of New Balance 920 with one of the most famous street fashion brands, Patta has created a signature sneakers of 2020.
First let’s go into the details of the shoes. The upper consists of very smooth suede (as expected from New Balance) with mesh and the “PATTA 920” stitched at the heel section. The heel tab consists of 3M reflective material as well as the tongue, with the “New Balance” and “Made in England” signature stitching with Patta “P” Logo. A very nice little detail by Patta. The overall colour is in a shade of brown and a hint of black to bring that autumn-ness and the overall shoes together, making it very easy to match with a lot of the clothes for the next few seasons.
Let’s talk comfort. Since the shoes are using ENCAP sole unit which is also used by other model such as the 990v3, with the upper inspired by the 900 and 1000, the shoes are made for a long day of walking. Since the shoes are made out of mostly mesh and suede, be sure to protect your shoes before going out in a wet day!
Overall, this is a great all year round shoe with the right colours and definitely an amazing shoe to go out and about in the city. Or even during travelling! The shoes were released online and instore on September 20th. Did you manage to cop yours? We are certain that there will be more of this model in the future!
