Joe FreshgoodsNew Balance 990v3 “Outside Clothes” is a deeply heartfelt design — one that Freshgoods created to pay homage to the joys of summertime in his home city of Chicago. “Being told you smell like outside represents the early stages of what fun meant. From neighborhood block parties to hanging on the porch all day with your homies, you knew you had a wild day when your mom said you smelled like outside,” Freshgoods stated when the collaboration was officially announced.

A Chicagoan through and through, Freshgoods ensured that his latest New Balance collaboration saw an early release in the Windy City, but with its global arrival around the corner HYPEBEAST has provided a closer look at its colorful stylings. A representation of the tones and textures of the great outdoors, the “Outside Clothes” features a multitude of brown suede shades across its upper plus brown synthetic toebox detailing. This color palette is inspired by the ground under the wearer’s feet, and provided with an earth-and-sky contrast thanks to a blue mesh base and blue midfoot logos. Even grass gets in on the equation, thanks to green details scattered around the top half. ENCAP midsoles continue the shoe’s ethos on the bottom half.

Besides the shoe’s build, it features several special details. As can be seen above, “Outside Clothes” is split between the left and right heels — and the standard “Made in the USA” branding is replaced by “Made for Us” hits. “JFG” replaces the regular 990 series embellishment on the lateral side, insoles feature a cloudy print and an “Outside Clothes” graphic and each pair also comes equipped with a special hangtag. Even the box gets in on the action with a cloud print of its own and musings from Freshgoods himself on the inside of the lid.

Get a detailed look at the Joe Freshgoods x New Balance 990v3 “Outside Clothes” above and expect it to hit the New Balance webstore September 10. Its MSRP is set at $220 USD.
