Last month saw New Balance debut four Made in USA Distinct Collection Styles, each inspired by the mid-century design movement of the 1950's and 60's. While the pack featured four great choices - the 996, 997, and 998 - the focus today falls solely on the New Balance 990, which features a combination of woven textiles and Horween leather with a tan nubuck colorway for the upper that also serves as a nod to the earlier era. The nubuck treatment also can be seen on the heel tab in a complimentary red and on the "N" logo in a navy blue while a Vibram outsole and off-white midsole finishes off the look. The New Balance 990 "Mid-Century Modern" is queuing up now for release at select sneaker shops, including UBIQ.
