In the last year and a half hardly any type of shoe has been as ubiquitous as this one: the Dad Shoe has had a steep ascent and has become an indispensable part of sneakers and streetwear. A shoe can rightly claim to be »the original dad shoe« - the New Balance 990. Hardly any other shoe currently manages to be worn so versatilely. New Balance is launching the V5 of the classic 990 on the market and is of course aware of its reputation. Claims such as »Worn by Supermodels in London, and dads in Ohio« or »Worn on fashion runways, and morning runs« are advertised to show the shoe's versatility.
The 990 v5 clearly has the 990 look, but a few updates have been made. The midsole has been simplified to look more modern. In addition, there is a new TPU strap on the side of the shoe and the ultra-soft Ortholite insole in the shoe. Tongue and heel bear the v5 logo. Clearly, the v5 continues the tradition of the 990s and shows that you can keep the myth of a classic alive by updating only nuances!
