Key Features: BEAMS refreshes the iconic New Balance 990v5 “dad” shoe with bright silver, reflective detailing. The standout feature of this latest iteration is the eye-catching mismatched gray and white paneling on the uppers.
Release Date: Available now.
Buy: Exclusively at Nordstrom.
Editor’s Notes: New Balance joins forces with BEAMS for an asymmetrical version of the 990v5, available exclusively at Nordstrom. As with previous iterations of the iconic silhouette, the latest iteration is constructed from a sporty mix of mesh and suede upper. It’s finished off with EVA foam and a stabilizing framework.
The TPU “power strap” and alternating gray and white paneling on the toe and tongue are subtle updates by the Japanese streetwear brand. Yet these updates don’t compromise the sneaker’s wear-it-with-anything appeal and remarkable comfort factor.
