A lightweight pigskin leather upper with mesh gives this classic men's running shoe its inimitable look, while a combo of premium cushioning and stability deliver the feel that keeps you coming back. And New Balance made some subtle updates for this 4th generation: it's more breathable, sports a lace keeper to keep the tongue in place, and a new streamlined N logo. This is American craftsmanship. The 990 continues its 30-year legacy of great performance and iconic style with the new men’s 990v4. It’s the perfect combination of cushioning and stability, wrapped up in a look that will last forever.
