Much as I love a bit of homegrown talent from Flimby the Made in the USA shoes from New Balance always float my boat. Take these clean and serene 990 V5 that have been constructed with the utmost love and attention over at NB’s factory in good ole Lawrence, Massachusetts. Made from premium pigskin suede with reflective panels the new V5 version of the 990 features a new TPU power strap for added structural support around the ankle area. A class act and totally timeless it’s still hard to believe that this shoe first appeared in 1982 isn’t it?
