The Classic Grey New Balance 990v3 Releases Soon
Release: 18 December 2021

News on this release was originally published on October 29, 2021.

Update: Following the release via Kith in October, the classic grey New Balance 990v3 will now hit shelves at Foot District on December 18. Don't sleep!

New Balance's 99X series has its 40th anniversary right around the corner, a new model (the 990v6) set to arrive soon and recent colabs with Joe Freshgoods and Bodega under its belt. Yes, there's a lot going on in the world of 99X, but there's always room for a classic, so NB have brought back the 990v3 in a near-identical replica of its original colourway.

First released in 2012 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the 99X series, the 990v3 features high-quality nubuck, leather and mesh uppers, all atop ENCAP and ABZORB-cushioned midsoles. What differentiated it from its predecessors was a more stripped-back build that saved weight, and a pop of flair thanks to a red and black logo hit on its tongue that nods to its made in the USA construction. It was followed up by the 990v4 in 2016 and the 990v5 in 2019, with the above-mentioned 990v6 likely dropping in 2022.

If you're looking to take a well-cushioned trip down memory lane, select sizes of this grey 990v3 are available now via Kith. The price is set at $180.
