We’ve already seen in influx of 990 releases since Teddy Santis began his long-term relationship with New Balance, after taking the spot as creative director for the MADE in USA line. Next up the duo continue to expand their offering with the season 2 collection and this 990v2, a dark and moody addition to the series .
Just like the other Santis colourways we’ve seen, they take a mixed materials approach, dressed in a premium suede, with a mesh base peeking out at the toe and side walls in purple. Standing out more than ever is the 'N' logo, in a box-fresh white, punctuating the brown backdrop with a bold orange frame, with the collar lining tying in. Rounding off the model is an ABZORB cushioned midsole and custom Made in USA embroidery at each tongue tab, representing a symbol of New Balance’s American heritage and craftsmanship.
