Despite concerted efforts to diversify its lineup of products over the last four years, New Balance continues to be synonymous with running. As such, much of the brand’s newest silhouettes draw inspiration from models like the 990 and Trackster, to name a couple.
Under the tutelage of Teddy Santis, the company’s Made In USA program has undergone updates, offering more experimental color combinations and refined branding efforts. The latest New Balance 990, however, abandons the multi-syllabic hues in favor of a stripped-back brown, black and cream mix of tones. Premium pig suede reprises its role across the upper, allowing for a softer off-white color to take over mesh components underneath. Foam midsoles abandon the “aged” aesthetic that’s graced most of Aimé Leon Dore’s recent work (and Santis’ Made In USA catalog) in favor of a clean white that rounds out the New Balance shoes well.
Enjoy official images of the pair ahead, and anticipate a newbalance.com launch soon.
