New Balance’s 990v4 has stepped away from its ,grey heritage to pay tribute to the Emerald Isle. While the top quality trainer retains its Made in USA mark of pride, the entire suede and mesh upper has been covered (or should we say ‘clovered’?) in the green of St. Patrick, the foremost patron saint of Ireland.
Legend has it that man himself travelled the country using the three-leaved shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity of the Christian gospel, which is where much of the symbolism around St. Patricks day originates. To add a little extra luck into the mix, New Balance opted for a four-leaf clover on the heel, so that they may carry you home safely after the whiskey kicks in on March 17.
The St. Patricks Day New Balance 990v4 is available now from select stockists, including online from Feature.
