Up-Close With New Balance's Latest Model: The Hefty X-90

Date: May 14 2018

By: Rob Marfell


New Balance have cherry-picked the choicest stylings from their back catalogue and combined them into a new model, the X-90.

The new design is hefty, with a thick REVlite midsole that flares from front to back, and uppers bolstered with suede. It’s on-trend, but unlike many other brands dropping bulky shoes, New Balance can’t be accused of jumping on the bandwagon. Their 990 is a sneaker many credit with birthing the bulky-shoe phenomenon, and while they mightn’t have delivered the first ‘dad shoe’, their designs have definitely son’d some latecomers.

To enjoy the X-90’s blend of retro heft and modern trimmings, pre-order the sneaker from New Balance Japan now, or save the date in the calendar below.
