New Balance's popular 990 silhouette is getting its fifth iteration with the release of the 990v5. Whether you were a supermodel or a sneakerhead, the 990 was and is a sneaker staple and back in 1982, it was the first athletic sneaker to be sold for $100. This year, the shoe receives its latest update with a shortened design to give it a slightly more contemporary look as well as premium pig suede and mesh construction in a choice of grey, navy, or black. It will also be available for customization if you need something a bit more unique.
The 990v5 will be available on May 4th while the customizable NB1 990v5 launches on June 14th.
