New Balance set out to create the perfect running shoe, as it delivered if the 900 is anything to go by. For keen runners and ahead of the trend pacemakers alike, the 990 stands for a symbol of quality and taste and has dominated sneakerhead's rotations since the ‘80s.
Numerous trends and technologies later, now the 990 is moving onto its next phase with the 990v6 silhouette broadening its offerings.
This MADE in USA addition takes on the tropes of its original predecessor, with premium fabrics and performance tweaks. Layered as expected, pigskin suede meets synthetic overlays, with mesh peeking out at the toe. The biggest change? The inside, where the addition of a FuelCell midsole showcases a comfortable and cushioned step forward in a new generation of the 990.
