Earlier this month, New Balance returned to its roots, so-to-speak, by offering its iconic 990 model for $100 USD, much like it did back in ’82 as a way to commemorate its longstanding history and overwhelming pop culture impact. The footwear brand keeps the shoe’s legacy alive and well with a new release fresh for the spring/summer season.
Swathed in off-white pigskin suede, subtle hits of metallic gold found on the snakeskin “N” emblem, tongue tab and heel counter add an air of opulence, while perforated windows found throughout the upper embody a rugged lifestyle appeal. Sitting below, the white midsole and gum-hued outsole do well to tie the look together. Priced at $165 USD, you can find this New Balance 990v4 at such stockists as Notre.
