As the Fourth of July approaches, New Balance introduces the newest tonal iteration of the Made in USA 990v5 sneaker design. The patriotic approach adorns the model with hits of blue, white, and red, highlighting the iconic model. The 990 design has been rooted in American manufacturing processes for over 75 years, which also means that it represents a strong portion of the label's American sales.
The uppers are constructed from premium nubuck materials with a blend of mesh materials in order to add some breathable elements to the piece. There are also hits of rubber as well in order to add some contrasting texture and added support overall. The upper features blue at the toe cap, white predominantly throughout the design and red at the outsole and the heel counter.
