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.
