Among the five — soon to be six — models in New Balance‘s 990 line, the 990v3 seems to hold a special place in many a sneakerhead’s heart. First released in 2012 to celebrate the original 990’s 30th anniversary, it’s become a favorite the world over for its combination of classic comfort, compelling color schemes and cornucopia of collaborations. Now, in 2021, it’s again a key piece of New Balance’s lifestyle push, one that’s set to return in three classic colorways: black, navy, and red.
Black and navy both feature a standard mesh upper, while red uses a nylon-like material to diverge from its counterparts. Key branded details on all three pairs are supplied by midfoot N logos, a 990v3 hit towards the lateral heel and a New Balance spellout graphic on the tongue. The black pair adds a little vibrance with silver midfoot logos and a red tongue hit, the navy pair keeps things cool with silver and red stylings of its own and the red pair brings its temperature down a touch with silver and black detailing. Each is completed by a three-tone midsole that uses classic ENCAP cushioning for all-day comfort.
All three of these New Balance 990v3s can be pre-ordered now at Saks Fifth Avenue, and are expected to ship no later than November 3. The MSRP for each is set at $175 USD.
