Since Teddy Santis joined New Balance as the Creative Director of the MADE in USA line, the footwear offerings from the division have been elevated with simplistic, tasteful looks. Now, following the 990v3 “Scarlet,” we’re offered yet another colorful look from the division.
Arriving in “Marigold,” the MADE in USA 990v2 is a change of pace from recent colorways such as “Black” and “Sea Salt.” The upper is prepared in a blend of hairy suede, pig suede and mesh with various shades of orange contrasted by hits of black throughout. Key branding elements also arrive in black, including the iconic “N” logo and “USA” text at the heel. Touches of off-white find themselves at the laces, tongue, lining and ABZORB-infused midsole to further support this fall-ready look. As with all MADE in USA footwear, each pair is composed of a domestic value of 70% or more.
The New Balance MADE in USA 990v2 “Marigold” is slated to launch August 12 at 10am EDT via New Balance and select retailers at a price of $195 USD.
