Editor’s Notes: The successor to the New Balance 990v4 is revealed with the new 990v5.
While the silhouette maintains the distinct 990 language, the 990v5 features a distinctly re-designed upper.
The model is draped in New Balance’s classic grey colorway, currently available through the brand’s online store. You can also look for the silhouette to land on New Balance’s customization platform, NB1, beginning June 14.
Take a look at a behind-the-scenes clip of the making of the 990v5 below.
