If you weren't able to get your hands on Bodega's recently-released pair, don't worry, more 990v3 collaborations are on the way. Joe Freshgoods isn't the only one with an impending drop, as Levi's also has a colorway that is expected to arrive at some point this year. This week, we're in turn getting our first look at the Levi's x New Balance 990v3, thanks to @zackj__, who has shared what appears to be official product images of the collaborative shoe. While virtually no accompanying info was provided, he did reveal that a launch is reported for later in 2021.
From the photos, we see the 990v3 showcased in a predominantly blue colorway, constructed from suede and — of course — a denim material. The silhouette's usual branding is implemented throughout, while additional Levi's logos signal the collab via a small tab on the side as well as graphic printing on the insole. Greenish yellow laces accompany the pair, matching the accenting details found across the sneaker.
Levi's is no stranger to collaborating with New Balance, having previously worked on the 1300 and 327. The 990v3, however, likely serves as the brand's best NB yet, and it should prove to be rather difficult to secure once it does arrive. Conversely, New Balance collabs have been second to none in recent years, as the sportswear brand continues to shell out hit after hit. While we wait for more concrete info on the Levi's release, you can shop some of the best NBs currently available right here.
