New Balance Introduces the X-90
Classic looks meet modern construction.
Its more chunky silhouettes — like the 990v4 — may be all the rage right now, but New Balance is streamlining things a bit with its latest design. Dubbed the X-90, NB’s newest shoe takes cues from the heritage styling of past New Balance silhouettes and couples it with a sleeker, modernized construction. Here, the sporty X-90 dons a classic greyscale colorway and pairs the look with a slip-on design crafted from mesh and leather while a REVlite sole unit provides the plush, lightweight cushioning.
Capped off with reflective branding and set to retail for around $120 USD, the X-90 is slated for a May 15 release from New Balance’s Japanese web store and should be turning up soon at NB dealers worldwide.
