New Balance's 99X line has stayed remarkably consistent since its introduction in 1982. Also consistent was Steve Jobs' preference for it. Company chairman Jim Davis has claimed that the original design concept came from Jobs himself, and the 992 was said to be the late Apple co-founder's favorite. Introduced in 2006, they were on his feet for arguably the most important (and impressive) introduction of Jobs' career, the 2007 iPhone unveiling. Discontinued for over a decade, New Balance is bringing them back by popular demand, but only for a limited time and in limited quantities. Made in the USA, the Air Steves have a gray-on-gray suede and mesh upper, Encap and Abzorb dual midsole, and Ndurance outsole, while a second colorway swaps out the gray suede for black.
