Teased just yesterday, we now get a closer look at the HAVEN x New Balance M990RG5. Coming in a lush gray colorway, the new sneakers see a rich array of functional materials that maximize utility for the lifestyle silhouette. This release marks the second collaboration by the two labels, following the previous blacked-out rendition of the 990v5 from a few months ago.

Starting at the top of the shoe is a glossy “MADE IN THE USA” badge placed at the tongue, over a bed of CORDURA AFT mesh. The breathable fabric is also seen at the collars, upper quarter and toebox, complemented by form-fitting rubber overlays that connect to the topmost eyelet. To match the sneaker’s smooth interiors, the heel counter comes in delicate Horween leather that sports a small “v” panel highlight. Furthermore, a reflective “N” logo is sewn over pigskin suede, covering the sidewalls and toecap, while concealed 3M strips outline the almond-shaped arch of the toebox. As a final note, the shoe boasts a dark gray articulated ENCAP midsole, equipped with a shock-resistant TPU insert for maximum comfort and support.

The HAVEN x New Balance M990RG5 will be available on March 14, 4:00 PM EST at HAVEN’s website for $210 USD.

In collaboration with New Balance, our M990RG5 is made in the USA with a combination of utilitarian and premium materials. The upper is built with Cordura® AFT mesh at the toe box and side panelling, for breathable, hard-wearing durability. A defining feature of the shoe are the highly reflective panels, concealed beneath the mesh toe box, and activated when exposed to light. Additional reflective detailing is featured throughout, with speckled woven laces and at the signature “N” logo and “V5” emblem. Supple Horween leather wraps the heel and interior sock liner, balancing out the pigskin upper treatment. A two-tone ENCAP midsole provides comfort and stability, while the footbed is finished with a co-branded print to showcase the partnership. Release Information: The HAVEN / New Balance M990RG5 will release online and in-stores at HAVEN Toronto and HAVEN Vancouver on March 13th at 11:00 AM, local time and online at 4:00 PM EST/1:00 PM PST.
