The 990 line brought New Balance back into streetwear sphere. Produced as part of the “Made In USA” line, you can expect the perfect combination of all-day comfort, plush uppers, supportive midsole and durable construction – qualities that made it popular among fashion-forward rappers, sneakerheads and runway models.
Building on the success of the 990 line, the 2002R carries over the dad-shoe aesthetic but at a more attainable price point with additional comfort granted by the N-ergy and ABZORB midsole. This has made it the choice sneaker for collaborators like thisisneverthat, Joe Freshgoods, Salehe Bembury, J.Crew and Bape.
First introduced by South Korean streetwear brand, thisisneverthat, the 1906R brings back the upper of a retired 2000s runner and places it atop the 2002R’s midsole. This is a solid option for sneakerheads looking for a sneaker with the layered, web uppers that were popular in that era.
The gem uncovered by Aime Leon Dore, the P550 is a retro basketball silhouette that can rival other established white-on-white retro sneakers on the market. What sets the P550 apart is the incredible quality leather used on the uppers and the plush insole of the shoes.
The 9060 is the latest creation from the Boston brand and was launched in collaboration with Joe Freshgoods through his “Inside Voices” capsule. It merges a fashion-forward design with New Balance’s renowned construction quality. Most importantly, it doesn’t sacrifice comfort for its head-turning design.
