The New Balance 990 in black and Wild Indigo is a premium lifestyle offering from the heritage footwear company. The 990 model has the distinction of being the very first athletic shoe to retail for $100, thanks in part to its use of high-end materials. Years later, the 990’s place in the annals of fly footwear has been cemented. Supple purple suede covers the entire upper, including the overlays and perforated base. Contrasting reflective New Balance branding sits on the mid-panel with gold accenting highlighting the look. Gold foil 990 detailing sits on the lateral panel with soft black suede appearing on the tongue and ankle collar. A grey and white ENCAP midsole provides superior comfort.
