The New Balance 990v4, an emerging star of the "dad shoe" trend, is expanding its repertoire with a new colorway that embraces a classic New Balance navy hue.
The new 990v4 "Navy" artfully utilizes different shades of blue to bring out the model's distinctive features. The upper is defined by a navy athletic mesh, contrasted by dark navy suede overlays. Adding an additional layer of depth, perforated leather linings sport an intermediary blue shade, subtly highlighting the shoe's refined craftsmanship.
Without the brand's signature reflective accents, no New Balance runner would be complete. Positioned strategically on the back heel, they punctuate the blue ensemble while enhancing visibility for those dusk-to-dawn wearers. Matching navy laces seamlessly blend with the mesh tongue, which houses a navy patch emblazoned with silver branding and a prestigious Made in USA plaque.
The midsole below displays a two-tone grey construction at the heel, equipped with New Balance's acclaimed ENCAP cushioning technology for optimal support and durability. The grey then transitions to white at the midfoot, providing a pleasant contrast against the darker upper. Finally, an outsole in a blend of black and grey completes the silhouette, reinforcing the shoe's status as a versatile everyday option.
The New Balance 990v4 Made in USA "Navy" is expected to hit the shelves this November via New Balance and select online and in-store retailers for $210; Expect concrete release information to arrive soon.
