New Balance has released a number of 990v2 colorways so far this year, likely in response to fans’ renewed interest in the 99x family in recent years. This week, we have an early look at a new multicolor iteration of the vintage runner, coming soon.

The New Balance 990v2 was quite an interesting sneaker when it first released in 1998. While the shoe was obviously a follow-up on the beloved 990, its predecessor had launched a full sixteen years prior, making the 990 a seemingly odd choice given the pace at which footwear technology moves. However, the 990v2 hit the streets in a full sprint, thanks to its new tech and design elements, quickly become runners’ go-to New Balance shoes of choice. Now, the 990v2 is receiving a second wind, having arrived back in New Balance’s lifestyle offerings for a run of retro-inspired looks over the past two years. This week, we’re looking at a wild new styling set to drop in the coming weeks, adding a wealth of colors to the v2’s unique upper. The look begins with a flat grey mesh base layer, before adding a rustic brown suede overlay to the shoe’s quarter sections. The mudguard comes in a dusty coyote tan, while a forest green heel counter rounds out the main blocking, while maroon, gold, and blue hints complete the look.


New Balance’s upcoming multicolor pair of the 990v2 has officially been scheduled to release later this week, on September 15th, 2021. The grey color scheme of the vintage runner will be available from both New Balance and select retailers, with a price tag of $175.
