New Balance MADE in USA Season 3 collection will offer multiple color options for different sneaker models
Created by Teddy Santis, New Balance has recently released a first peek of their forthcoming Season 3 Made in USA collection. Santis, who founded Aime Leon Dore, began his creative direction for New Balance the previous year with the goal of providing an innovative viewpoint to the brand's well-established shapes. The renowned creative director's Season 3 is eagerly anticipated after two great seasons of revamping and introducing new colors.
The description of the upcoming MADE in USA 990v6 “White/Purple” shoes on the brand’s webpage reads:
“The designers of the first 990 were tasked with creating the single best running shoe on the market. The MADE in USA 990v6 embraces this original mandate, with a series of performance-inspired updates. The upper dispenses with the standard midfoot saddle, allowing the pigskin and synthetic overlays to flow from heel to toe across the mesh underlay, for a speedy, streamlined look.”
It further continues:
“While the evolved design marks one of the most dramatic changes from one generation model to the next that the 990 has ever seen, the greatest leap forward occurs on the inside. The addition of FuelCell midsole cushioning means that the evolution of the 990 can be felt as much as it can be seen.”
This season, the sportswear brand is introducing nine fresh colorways for four of its most recognisable designs - the 990v6, 990v4, 996, and 998. Among these are three new 990v6 colorways: the formerly announced "Cream Tan" and "Magenta Pop," as well as an undisclosed "Green Yellow" variant.
Having a yellow top along with green highlights that contains the branding, this last pair has a similar color scheme to one of the 996s. Moreover, a pink, white, silver, and cream-colored 996 with pigskin suede as well as a purple suede-covered 990v4 stand out from the rest of the collection.
