Younes Bendjima Paris-based Studio FY7 is the latest to collaborate with New Balance on the 992 inspired by his native country Algeria and influence on international architecture.
“The suede outer shoe serves as a reflection of the colouration and curvature of the dunes of southern Algeria, which is contrasted by Black circular cutaways that symbolize the ancient architecture of Ghardaïa – which heavily influenced the work of Le Corbusier,” Studio FY7 shared on Instagram.
The shoe is a reminder that no matter where you walk in the world, you can, and should, be proud to carry your history and heritage wherever you go.
