HAVEN‘s collaboration with New Balance last year saw a sleek blacked-out rendition of the classic 990v5 silhouette. Reuniting once again, the two entities have opted for a lush gray color scheme this time around, embellishing the sneakers with rich 3M highlights alongside a bevy of other functional materials.

Most of the shoe is dominated by a soft gray shade. Smooth full-grain Horween leather graces the interiors, complemented by delicate pigskin suede on the outer sidewalls. At the top of the tongue, a glossy “MADE IN THE USA” patch is stamped over a bed of breathable CORDURA fabric, while flat, reflective splinter-patterned laces cover the central forefoot. Other areas with 3M accenting include New Balance’s woven “N” logo at the sides, the “v”-marked heel counter and a set of angular strips that outline the toebox. All of these details sit atop suede mudguards and an essential ENCAP-equipped midsole, offering optimal cushioning and stability.

Though no official release dates have been revealed, the grayed-out HAVEN x New Balance 990v5 is expected to be released soon, according to the retailer’s Instagram.
