Made in America as it was thirty years ago when it debuted as the brand’s first $100+ release, the New Balance 990 returns in original form commemorating the advent of NB’s brilliant 99x distance running series. This big-N icon is every bit as timeless as the Air Force 1 we’ve celebrated so extensively for its three decade run in 2012, but instead of a plethora of premium colorups, NB sticks to the OG grey suede and mesh composition with pristine white accents just as they appeared on the 1982 ad copy. Select retailers like Titolo will have limited numbers this Saturday, December 1st; are they the finest New Balance release this year or would that crown reside with one of the many superb collaborations?
