So, the New Balance 990v1 might not be the hot topic like its bros, the 990v2 or 990v3, but let's not forget that back in '82, this OG silhouette was the real MVP of running shoes. Teddy Santis, a guy who knows his stuff when it comes to vintage, has been digging into New Balance's legendary history ever since he became their creative director in 2021.
After dropping a sweet "Tan and Green" colorway in January, Santis and New Balance are getting ready to roll out another green, season-inspired version that's perfect for the times. This latest MADE in USA sneaker has got a St. Paddy's Day vibe with various shades of green on the upper, made from a top-notch combo of mesh, suede, and leather. To make it even cooler, there's the classic off-white tongue and sockliner, along with eye-catching red New Balance branding and a poppin' yellow "N" logo on the base.
Don't overlook the low-key branding on the heel counter and the super comfy ENCAP cushioned sole. If you're itching to grab a pair, the New Balance 990v1 MADE in USA "Green/Yellow" will be up for grabs at $190 USD at New Balance and select retailers on March 30.
