Editor’s Notes: The successor to the New Balance 990v4 is revealed with the new 990v5, and previewed by SneakersER owner Robert Stewart.

While the silhouette maintains the distinct 990v language, the 990v5 seems a bit more refined in terms of its construction, while also bearing a slightly shortened profile with a more rounded toe box, providing additional space for its width.

The forthcoming model is draped in New Balance’s classic grey colorway, and it’s slated to have a limited stateside drop with a DMV-specific launch later this spring. Wider availability is expected to follow later in the year. Stay tuned for more updates.
