Colourway: Black History Month

News on this release was first published on September 21, 2021.,

Update February 4, 2022: Despite seemingly having been available for months now, this New Balance 990v5 is actually out now in time for Black History Month. This has become apparent given its M990BH5 product code and black and gold colourway. Get them directly from New Balance.

Sometimes, a colourway just really matches the sensibilities of the silhouette it appears on. Case in point: this black and gold New Balance 990v5. Not only does the colour scheme command instant respect, it also highlights the elegant lines and shape of the fifth iteration in the storied 990 lineup. 

A proud member of NB’s modern Made in USA range, the 990v5 continues a strong brand tradition that’s been specifically sustained by the 990 series for almost 40 years now. Featuring many of the beloved design cues of its predecessors, such as the pigskin suede and mesh uppers, the 990v5 became a quick favourite among New Balance devotees when it debuted back in 2019.

Beyond this stately black and gold colourway, you’ll get all the usual 990v5 goodies, most notably the supportive cushioning via the latest generation ENCAP midsole insert, which wraps around the medial post to control pronation. And there’s also OrthoLite insoles to keep your feet feeling comfy all day long. 

Pairs of this black and gold 990v5 are available right now from New Balance.
