New Balance’s 990x footwear series is one of the most popular lines in the brand’s history. This classic series of running trainers dating back to the early 80s found themselves in the mainstream culture. The New Balance 990v5 is one of the modern models in the roster, and it’s also the most streamlined shoe compared to the rest.

The 990v5 stands among the premium New Balance selections in the back catalogue. Part of the Made in USA label, this New Balance model wanted to bring back the dad shoe trend of the early 2010s. But it did not only gather actual dads, it also caught the attention of the entire sneaker world.

The New Balance 990v5 first debuted in 2019, 3 years after the 990v4 launched. Staying true to the 990 DNA, the V5 features a mesh body with pigskin suede overlays for that premium look. It’s highly similar to its predecessor when it comes to aesthetics, but there are also noticeable differences.

Iconic N logos on the sides and the Made in USA labels on the tongue flaunt the premium design of the shoe.

ENCAP cushioning comprises the foam midsole with a PU counter for stability.

With the recent release of the 990v6, it’s certain that the 990v5 will still be a popular choice. The “dad shoe” Grey colourway is always a hit for New Balance!
