Development of New Balance’s 990 began in 1978, with the release following in 1982. In the years since the model has become synonymous with quality, fitting for a “spare no expense” shoe. Now in its fifth iteration, the 990v5 Made in USA Sneaker combines the same dependability with a modern silhouette and technology. It has a durable pigskin and mesh upper in an eye-catching marblehead black, brown, and white colorway, a blown rubber outsole, and Encap midsole technology that gives it just the right balance of stability and comfort.
