Original Story: One of the silhouettes that New Balance continues to propel to the frontlines is the 990v3. It’s been highly sought after for its premium comfort, lifestyle runner aesthetic that aligns with today’s sneaker trends and wealth of collaborations with the likes of JJJJound, UNITED ARROWS, DTLR and more. And in the coming months, footwear and streetwear retailer size? is slated to host its own exclusive launch of the model in a dusted orange colorway.
size? Brand Director Luke Matthews provided an early in-hand look at the pair which reveals its lateral angle and assemblage of earthy tones. A faded orange hue is pronounced across the sultry suede overlays and underlying mesh materials while notes of off-white accents top off the N logos and leather overlays that reside on the toe boxes and collars. Small doses of brown appear on the tongues and heels while pops of orange are situated on the tongue’s New Balance branding, eyelets and the midsole’s ENCAP labels.
You can expect official release info to be announced in the coming months, so enjoy an early look in the gallery above while you wait on their arrival.
