The New Balance 990v6 was initially teased last Fall, and we have anxiously been awaiting the arrival of the fresh new silhouette 40 years in the making. Now, we have an early look at the v6’s classic Navy Blue look, coming soon.

The New Balance 990 originally debuted in 1982, and earned praise as one of the best running shoes on the market at the time. Since then, the 990 family has grown significantly, adding numerous new styles to the numeric franchise, as well as evolving the original through five different versions in the years since. Now, the Boston-based footwear brand is gearing up to celebrate forty years of the silhouette by introducing its latest iteration, the 990v6. The new addition to the family is somewhat of a departure from the norm, this time focusing on more organic, natural lines for the layered upper. This week, the New Balance 990v6 surfaced in detailed images of its Navy Blue color scheme, decking out the shoe in one of NB’s classic grey-accented styles. This pair also gives us a good look at the newly sculpted midsole, which shows off sleek lines and FuelCell cushioning.


As of this writing, New Balance has issued zero information in regards to the upcoming release of the 990v6, however, Teddy Santis did state that the model would be part of the brand’s 2022 release plans. Pairs of the 990v6 will launch from both New Balance and select retailers, likely with a price tag somewhere in the $180 range. Check out the in-hand photos of the classic navy blue color scheme below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more New Balance release news.

UPDATE 3/17/23: Official images of the navy blue New Balance 990v6 have appeared, nearly a year after the shoe first surfaced online. While no release information has been made available yet, they are now expected to arrive sometime in Spring or Summer 2023 .

UPDATE 4/29/22: Several months into 2022, and we are still awaiting the debut of New Balance’s 990v6 silhouette. Originally teased by Teddy Santis, whose debut Made in USA collection launched this week, we are hoping to see the latest entry in the 990 family release sometime in the coming weeks.
