This is American craftsmanship. The latest in the New Balance Made in the USA series, the 990v4 Mid Men's Shoe in Black restores the great performance and iconic style of the 990’s 30-year-legacy. It’s the perfect combination of cushioning and stability, wrapped up in a look that will last forever. 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 we’ve made some subtle updates for this 4th generation: it’s more breathable, it features sports a lace keeper to keep the tongue in place, and is BOA®sts a new streamlined “N” logo.
