The New Balance 990v5

Iconic style, timeless quality. The New Balance 990v5 is here to stay.

Manufactured in the US, New Balance builds the 990 to the highest standards. The 990 begins with a precision-cut suede upper that's hand-stitched to premium mesh panels before being mated to a cushy ENCAP midsole.

The result is a time-tested sneaker built for fashion models in New York and dads in Ohio.

Built to the Highest Standards

The exacting New Balance 990 was originally built to be the best running shoe money could buy. When the 990 first came out in 1982, the trainer landed with a price of $100—the first running shoe to break the mark.

Each component of the New Balance 990v5 is built to be a comfortable running shoe. Mesh panels on the upper improve breathability, and an EVA midsole wrapped in a polyurethane rim deliver comfort and support.

Stitched by Hand

Quality comes standard in the New Balance 990v5. The pigskin upper is cut and trimmed to exact specifications and then stitched together by hand in the Boston-based manufacturing plant.

The attention to quality created a shoe worthy of morning runs and fashion runways for almost four decades.
