From YCMC to Beams and then around to Aime Leon Dore, the New Balance 990v5 is amassing quite the list of collaborators with Canada-based HAVEN being the next to take it out for a spin. Not too dissimilar to their batch of Vans, the silhouette dresses up in an approach largely quite modest upon first glance. The palette itself, which is arguably one of the darkest the model has seen in terms of its partnerships, is filled to the brim with black tones and varying shades few in number. Mesh and suede fabrications, though, are of the same brand of high quality that the Boston stalwarts have become synonymous with, lending to a bit of visual dimension as paneling traverses from texture to texture. Elsewhere, the branding is kept mostly to a minimal with a small cameo of the retailer’s logo found on the insole, a subtle addition much like their inclusion of more reflective threads at the toe box, laces, and all around the profile. Grab a detailed look at the pair right here and find it rolling out to the boutique on December 6th for $280 CAD.
