The NEW BALANCE 990V1 shows that the 990 looks just as strong today as it ever has. To mark its 40th anniversary, New Balance are re-releasing some of the finest editions of the model – and it all starts here with this incredible 990V1. In terms of its appearance, the 990v1 is smart and uncomplicated, with premium suede, hardwearing mesh and reliable stability underfoot – a true example of a contemporary but classic design. As a special finishing touch, a special red label acts as a name tag and sits neatly on the media and lateral sides.
Prior to the 40th anniversary of the New Balance 990 sihlouette, the Boston-based sportswear powerhouse has produced a homage MADE 990 shoe. This archival model features ruby red tags, establish date details on the tongue, and an image of the clocktower at the New Balance factory in Lawrence, Massachusetts, on the sole and dustbag; a nod to the rich heritage of New Balance’s MADE platform.
