New Balance gives its iconic 990 silhouette a slight revision with the 990v6 Made in USA. Immediately clear is that New Balance has lightened and softened the 990 for version 6. It's instantly obvious the 990v6 is lightweight and has more cushioning than any prior iteration. The sneaker evolves the classic design with a more athletic look and features an upper made from mesh with pigskin and synthetic suede overlays. An ENCAP midsole cushioning pairs lightweight foam with a polyurethane rim to supply all-day support, while a FuelCell midsole delivers rebound and propulsion. It's finished with reflective details for visibility during night runs.
