Minimalist Neutral-Toned Sneakers

The New Balance 990v2 Made in USA 'Sea Salt' Has Been Released

— May 25, 2022 — Fashion
The ‘Made In USA’ collection from New Balance was pioneered by creative director Teddy Santis in 2021. As the collection starts to hit stores, fans will finally be able to get their hands on the latest New Balance 990v2 silhouette, which arrives in a ‘Sea Salt’ colorway.

The neutral-toned sneaker relies on mesh underlays and leather overlays to unite shades of gray and eggshell. Gray accents fill the ‘N’ logos, toe box overlays, and the heels. ‘USA’ decorates the upper portion of the sneaker's heel, which is backgrounded by a metallic grey window. Meanwhile, cream-colored laces, midsoles, and tongues tie together the look of this classic sneaker.

Interested parties can sign up for the Aimé Leon Dore raffle to win a chance at purchasing the ‘Sea Salt’ 990v2s.
