Editor’s Notes: The New Balance 990 (first released in 1982) was one of the first sneakers to stray above a retail price-tag of $100. While prices for sneaker drops may have definitely increased over the years, the U.S. footwear company is gearing up for a special edition 990v4 drop at its original price. Since 1982, the shoe has become a cult favorite for its normcore styling and unparalleled comfort.

The OG runner is set to come in an authentic grey suede colorway with mesh and navy detail, a chunky outsole, and “EST 1982” embroidery across the sides.
