The Timeless New Balance 990v5 Strikes Again
Release: 1 November 2020

New Balance continue to make impressive strides in the performance and collaborative spaces, launching a brand new signature shoe with Kawhi Leonard, and recently linking up with one of the world’s hottest fashion labels, Casablanca.

That’s not to say the sneaker stalwarts aren’t supporting some of their more perennial models, the latest colourway of the NB 990v5 proving an impressive rendition of their fifth-iteration NB 990.

Manufactured with premium pigskin suede, breathable mesh, and ultra comfortable OrthoLite inserts, the soft ENCAP midsole foam again elevates the 990 to new heights. Featuring iridescent 3M reflective details and a new blown rubber tread pattern, the 990v5 bolsters its grip even more than its predecessor.

Still impressively maintaining US manufacturing for over 75 years, the latest colourway dazzles with a mixture of ‘Team Red’ and ‘Carbon’ accents. Ostensibly another patriotic rendition of a classic, it’s hard to go wrong with the New Balance 990v5.
