The New Balance 990v3 by Teddy Santis The third version of the renowned 990 franchise is brought back by the Made in USA film "White Blue." The upper of this pair is made up of white mesh, grey suede, and white leather. Black and royal blue collar and forefoot overlays provide contrasting pops of color. The huge 'N' emblem that adorns the quarter panel is one of many branding features on the sneaker that feature the latter color. The ENCAP midsole from New Balance provides a smooth ride thanks to its lightweight foam construction and robust polyurethane rim.
