Orange New Balance 990
New Balance 990 Orange
The New Balance 990 was a revolutionary sneaker when it was first released. It has become synonymous with luxury running shoes and is one of the most popular styles for women. The new 990v4 comes in a beautiful orange shade, with a suede and mesh upper accented with ‘N’ branding and low light reflective accents. It also comes with ABZORB cushioning and NDurance rubber.
This streamlined version of the classic 990 recipe has been updated with a fresh look that channels its athletic pedigree. The N logo sits at the top of the upper, with a mesh panel that stretches outward. The panels are accented with leather shadows to give the shoe an elegant look. The upper is made of leather and mesh, with a polyurethane ring that provides comfort and support. The ENCAP sole is another feature of the 990v4, and provides the classic balance between stability and cushioning.
The 990’s unique design incorporates new technologies into its outsole. The ENCAP midsole, which has a moulded polyurethane shell that encapsulates an EVA wedge, has added stability to the shoe. The shoe also features a low-compression set to prevent midsole squish.
Another New Balance 990v2 is available in orange, also known as the Marigold. The ‘Marigold’ colourway features hairy suede, pigskin, and mesh, with black accents and NB’s signature ‘N’ logo. It also features ABZORB midsoles.
The New Balance 990 was released in 1982, making it one of the most expensive running shoes on the market at the time. This particular style set the standard for cushioning and flexibility and became the benchmark for all New Balance running sneakers. It paved the way for the evolution of the brand, and it’s still at the vanguard of what New Balance has to offer.
This new model of the New Balance 990 was the fourth iteration in its history. It had a triple-figure price tag and was designed for serious runners. It was a status symbol that made it popular in cities like Baltimore and Washington D.C. However, it wasn’t for everyone.
The New Balance 990 is made in the USA. Its upper is made of 3M material and is mostly suede. There is also a perforated suede option available. The suede quality isn’t as high as in other USA-made pairs, but it is still buttery and smooth. Those who are material fiends will love these sneakers.
