Editor’s Notes:  New Balance has delivered its flagship 990v2 model in an impeccably dad-core color scheme of gray and white, to follow up on the recently introduced 990v5.

The 990v2 first dropped in the late 1980s as a performance running shoe. This recent iteration is done up in mesh and premium pig suede with a slightly smaller New Balance “N” branding, stitched alongside.

The addition of ABZORB midsole technology provides that extra cushioning and support everyone can get around, even if your knees haven’t given out just yet. The men’s sneaker is part of NB’s 9’X Series Pack. Designed to represent the rich 35-year heritage of the 990 running shoe.
