Dominant seasons by Miguel Cabrera and RA Dickey only resulted in the smallest blip with regard to commemorating their achievements via special edition product, so while it’s not a foregone conclusion, we’d expect New Balance to take full advantage of their most popular silhouette hitting a major milestone much like Nike Sportswear did this year with the Air Force 1. But while we wait on those XXV 574s, one of its forebears is also celebrating a thirtieth anniversary, with the original New Balance 990 (the modern 990 is actually the V3, marking its second major revision). The first New Bals to hit the three-digit MSRP mark, this OG style features a unique elements like its heel counter, retrofied branding and a Vibram outsole, and the M990GRY will be available at select retailers like Hanon on December 1st.
