New Balance is proud to be the only major company to make or assemble more than 4 million pairs of athletic footwear per year in the USA, which represents a limited portion of their US sales. Where the domestic value is at least 70%, shoes are labeled Made in the USA.
This is American craftsmanship. The 990 continues its 30-year legacy of great performance and iconic style with the new women’s 990v4. It’s the perfect combination of cushioning and stability, wrapped up in a look that will last forever.
A lightweight pigskin leather upper with mesh gives this classic running shoe its inimitable look, while a combo of premium cushioning and stability deliver the feel that keeps you coming back. A few subtle updates for this 4th generation: it's more breathable, sports a lace keeper to keep the tongue in place, and a new streamlined “N” logo.
