The New Balance 990 was originally released in 1982, and was built like no other sneaker before it. Touted for providing, "stability, cushioning and flexibility, all in one shoe," the 990 was quality crafted and built for serious runners. Now known for their timeless style as much as their comfort, the latest iteration, the New Balance 990v5, stays true to the heritage of the 990. Proudly made in the USA, they are constructed with premium pig suede, feature mesh panels for breathability, reflective accents to enhance visibility in low-light conditions, ENCAP midsole technology, and a durable blown rubber outsole. Plus, they are available in a variety of widths, which is becoming increasingly hard to find with athletic sneakers. You can find the New Balance 990v5 at Sneakerhead now.
