New Balance 990v4 Women's Everyday Running Shoes in Grey / Castlerock. This is American craftsmanship. The 990 continues its 30-year legacy of great performance and iconic style with the new women’s 990v4. 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 women’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 has 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.
