by Henrik Buzzi

Following the success of the OG Grey release earlier in the year, we’re pleased to present the New Balance 990v5 size? Worldwide Exclusive. At the heart of every small British community lies the local corner shop, a convenient place to stock up on your weekly necessities.

Throughout the 1980s, vibrant packaging and signage lined the shelves and plastered the windows of shops across the nation, all offering the latest bargains to be found inside. Brand names were splashed across products in bold, brash typefaces.The size? Exclusive New Balance 990v5 draws inspiration from the colors found in these corner shops, selecting a palette of blue, yellow and pink and applying them to the latest rendition of the celebrated runner.

The upper of the 990v5 is comprised of the traditional combination of high-quality suede and strong, yet fully breathable mesh. Royal blue suede panels cover the outer layer of materials, while yellow mesh and pink perforated nubuck sit underneath. Reflective hits can be found on the toe, heel counter and bold ‘N’ side branding. Limited to 500 pairs only, releasing June 28 at Size?
