Brand:Engineered Garments x New Balance

Model: 990v5

Key Features: Arriving in three colorways (as a nod to New Balance’s perennially available 990 colorways), the sneaker features an asymmetric upper constructed of different types of leather over a mesh base. Suede paneling is present at the heel, while an ENCAP midsole locks in the comfort factor.

Release Date: July 23 (New York pop-up), September 7 (global release)

Price: $230

Buy:Nepenthes NY and select retailers (see full list below)

Editor’s Notes: Engineered Garments has collaborated with the New England sportswear brand to create three asymmetric colorways of the 990v5. The grey pair features contrasting shades on its lateral and medial sides, while the navy and black pairs mix suedes and alligator skin-like leathers to create a similar effect. The Nepenthes-affiliated brand is no stranger to asymmetric designs, having opted for similar looks on previous Vans and Dr. Martens footwear collaborations.

Check out all three colorways above and look out for the global drop to follow early next month.
