If you ask someone what New Balance shoe is the most defining, they will tell you that it is the 990, the legendary, made-in-the-USA classic running shoe that has become iconic within the brand’s catalog. This all-in-one sneaker mixes catchy design with excellent cushioning and support to provide you with a cozy stride wherever you run. Definitely, the last version of the shoe increases all those qualities, pushing the New Balance name forward into the new higher level.

External design New Balance M990v3

The actual shape of the shoe is visually very pleasing. It is solid, looks supportive with a good heel design. It’s represented in a lot of colorways, however, the majority of them are  incredibly bland, opting for various shades of gray, beige, blue and black. Though, there are some brighter variants such as burgundy and red.

The upper of the shoe is half suede – half mesh, with perforated synthetic leather overlay on the heel (with “made in the USA” sign and NB logo). The shoe also features traditional logos on the sides and a “New Balance USA” sign on the padded tongue. There’s a traditional lace-up closure with extra eyelets and a very soft collar that hugs the ankle.

On the inside, you’ll find a breathable mesh lining and a removable cushioned footbed with perforations all over its length. Another attractive detail of the model is reflective cushioning, which promotes visibility in low-light conditions.
