Editor’s Notes: Following the recent global launch, as well as availability on the brand’s customization platform, the New Balance 990v5 is now subject to its first retailer exclusive. The Massachusetts-based company has tapped size? to unleash a vibrant take on the ever-popular silhouette.
size? pulls inspiration from British corner shops of the ’80s for this exclusive release of the 990v5. The blue, yellow, and pink color palette then references the colors found in these stores, as well as the bright packaging and signage that filled them.
Premium suede and breathable mesh come together on the upper of the 990v5, which also welcomes hits of perforated nubuck. Reflect accents provide the sneaker with another dimension on the toe, heel counter, and “N” branding on the side.
Limited to just 500 pairs, this exclusive New Balance 990v5 launches June 28 at select size? stores and through the size? previews app.
