The Engineered Garments x New Balance M990 V5 “Black” is the New York City-based upscale fashion brand’s mismatching version of New Balance’s ultimate lifestyle shoe. Those familiar with Engineered Garments’ theme of using contrasting patterns will appreciate the overlays and materials used on the mid-panels and heels of both shoes. As is customary, the mid-panel features tonal “N” branding while the black mesh tongue is complete with unique “Made in the USA” detailing. Both pairs feature a black mesh base. First unveiled back in the mid-'80’s, the collaborative EG x New Balance M990 V5 sports New Balance’s famed ENCAP midsole for optimal comfort. The Engineered Garments x New Balance M990 V5 “Black” was released on September 7, 2019.
