With the boom of the sneaker dad in all the height New Balance does not miss the opportunity and launches, next April 12, a shoe that will make lovers of the 990 go crazy, we are talking about the: New Balance 990v4 – Special Edition of “1982”.

New Balance 990v4 - 1982

The 990 has been an icon of the streetwear scene since its launch in 1982. Its rise in recent years has been fuelled by the hype of the dad-sneaker and the chunky movement. A shoe that has as many lovers as detractors, a shoe without half measures – you like it or hate it – and, in short, a shoe destined to dominate the scene, again, this 2018.

With only 1,500 pairs, New Balance (@newbalance) takes the hype of the 990v4 – “1982” to exaggerated levels. The special edition will be sold at a price of €90 (compared to the usual €200) with a wink at the original launch price.

The differences with the 990v4 line are minimal. It is clear that one of the most important attractions is the price.
