New Balance's Latest 990 Offers a New Age Take on the Dad Sneaker Trend

Featuring a lightweight, breathable upper.

New Balance hops on the dad sneaker trend with the release of its latest 990 colorway arriving in “Angora.” The brand recently debuted the 991 silhouette in “Sand/Grey.”

The kicks feature a lightweight, breathable tan upper constructed for a top tier level of comfort. On the side, a reflective detail appears which was created to offer a hint of color while worn at night on the roads. We also see dual-density collar foam which was added to provide cushioning and support. Additional details include the ENCAP midsole technology which delivers durability for active athletes. Lastly, the brand’s “N” symbol appears in a metallic gold hue outlined with white trim.

Purchase the New Balance 990 “Angora” over at New Balance’s web store where they price out at $185 USD.
