One might think that New Balance‘s celebrated 990v5 only works in its monochrome colorways. But UK sneaker retailer size? is here to prove us wrong. The size x New Balance 990v5 features a multitude of flashy tones that displays the silhouette in a new light.
Inspiration comes from a go-to place in every small British community. Before large store chains took over, the local corner shop was – and often still is – your source for daily necessities. During the 80s, vibrant packaging and signage that’s signature to this era lined the shelves and plastered the windows of shops across the nation. Since the original 990 launched in 1982, size? covered the model in equally flashy colors for their exclusive version.
While the traditional material combination of high-quality suede and fully breathable mesh pleases purists, a color palette of blue, yellow and pink makes for an eye-catching look. Reflective hits on the toe, heel counter and lateral “N” logo complete the design. Take a closer look at the shoe below and read on for the release info.
