Editor’s Notes: Miami’s Stray Rats has put its own spin on one of New Balance’s most iconic silhouettes: the 990v3.
Julian Consuegra’s brand contrasts a black base with hits of purple and green to create an eye-catching colorway in Stray Rats’ signature look. Staying true to New Balance’s “Made in USA” standard, the sneaker features high-quality nubuck paneling.
Flying somewhat under the radar, the Stray Rats x New Balance 990v3 was announced via the former’s Instagram account yesterday. The release is set for tomorrow, September 26. The sneaker will retail for $190 and will be available via the Stray Rats website.
Although the NB990 line now includes a v4, the v3 still gets a lot of love from sneakerheads and, evidently, brands as well. Recently, Aries reworked the New Balance 990v3 with minimal splashes of color. Check it out here.
