This is American craftsmanship. The New Balance 990 continues its 30-year legacy of great performance and iconic style with the new men\'s 990v4. It\'s the perfect combination of cushioning and stability, wrapped up in a look that will last forever. A lightweight pigskin leather upper with mesh gives this classic men\'s running shoe its inimitable look, while a combo of premium cushioning and stability deliver the feel that keeps you coming back. And we\'ve made some subtle updates for this 4th generation: it\'s more breathable, sports a lace keeper to keep the tongue in place, and a new streamlined "N" logo.
