First Look: Exclusive New Balance 992 ‘Varsity’

New Balance and DTLR’s June Sanders present his rework of the quintessential classic M992 model. Stepping up to the plate is the NB992 Varsity. This second play celebrates all athletes – from those who are best in class to the everyday champion powering through life. To be the best, you have to run with the best from grade school to the world games.

America’s love for sports is a unifying experience – winning runs in our blood. June encapsulates that undercurrent of collective energy in a fashionable way reflected in a time-honored colorway. His use of grey and blue premium suede with a hint of red is a nod to the collegiate inspiration that keeps letterman jackets and crested sweatshirts permeating fashion. The hyper-white reflective “N” hallmark and equally captivating heel tab elevate the shoe to the Ivy League of footwear with a relaxed vibe that flashes into brilliance when a play needs to be made. The US flag logo that dons the tongue was brought out of the New Balance archives and quietly radiates the continued dedication to achievement. The power play feature that applies pressure is the USA hologram on the heel counter.

Primetime for Labor Day weekend, the NB992 ‘Varsity’ retails for $185 USD and releases at 10AM EST on September 3, 2021 exclusively at and select store locations.

  1. I really love the DTLR & New Balance collaboration! I have a YouTube channel Victor Ekat where I tell my friends about different coloborations. Today on YouTube I posted a new video DTLR x New Balance 992 “Discover and Celebrate”. Now I really want to buy DTLR x New Balance 992 “VARSITY”. If I can buy these sneakers, then I will definitely make a new video.
