Miami-based label Stray Rats works in collaboration with New Balance on a special 990v3 Made in USA sneaker model for the season. The footwear is adorned in an alternate colorway option referencing both labels, highlighted by a gray base constructed from mesh materials before decorated in bright hues of both purple and green overlaying.

In addition to the collaborative sneaker, Stray Rats unveiled on its Instagram account that it will be launching an apparel capsule to accompany the footwear -- this features graphic hoodies, shorts, and tees. Additional details include the nubuck materials infused for bright contrasting elements, branding accents in gray on the side, a reflective heel panel in silver, and 990 branding on the heel. The sneaker is rounded out with a half white, half gray ENCAP midsole.
