Elephant Print Lands on This Upcoming New Balance 992

It wasn’t too long ago that New Balance reintroduced the world to the 992. Through collaborations and general releases, the silhouette ran up the scoreboard all 2020 and continues to have relevancy in 2021. The Boston-based brand has another 992 in the works with an animal print we’ve come accustomed to from another brand.

The upcoming New Balance 992 “Elephant” keeps it simple as an all-black leather upper with its signature mesh paneling is treated with elephant print on the shoe’s mudguard. The elephant print, popularized by Tinker Hatfield and the Air Jordan 3, has become as iconic as a shoe for the Nike and Jordan Brand lines. Now, New Balance repurposes the look. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen NB adopt some Jumpman flavor. As we tackled in Unboxed Issue 49, the brand isn’t shy to take flight.

The New Balance 992 “Elephant” is set to have a wider release in October at select retailers and NewBalance.com for $190. As always, our sneaker monitors and release day strategy will have members ready for drop day.

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
