The 990 is one of the iconic models of the brand, a retro running shoe from the mythical series of the 990. The ABZORB sole offers comfort that New Balance got the reputation. A very high-end model, recommended for long town walking. A masterpiece in durability. A pair recommended for the town.
The 997 was born in the 90s. At a time when the shoe was defined by technology, New Balance is raising the stakes, offering a radical new aesthetic for the 99X line. While the 996 had seen in the 80s refining the 995, the 997 introduced the sawtooth kick (raised heel) and a thermoplastic Hytrel Strap system to tighten the foot in the "lock-like" way.
The 997 was produced both in the United States and the United Kingdom, making a unique shoe in the history of the company.
In the 80s until the beginning of the 90s, New Balance never stopped innovating. In 1993 the silhouette of the famous 998 arrived. Appearing for the first time, the midsole in Abzorb cushioning. This foam is still one of their best creations. This model has since become the timeless classic of new balance.
