New Modern Essential: New Balance X-90

The New Balance X-90 is a modern spin on a classic 90s sneaker. It takes inspiration from New Balance 99x series including the 990v3, 991, 992 and 993. The standout feature is the bold chunky midsole which mixes performance cushioning with 90s styles. The minimal upper is made with engineered knit, asymmetrical collar straps, classic ‘N’ logo branding, and stretch bootie construction.

Overall, the knit upper is breathable and lightweight. While the oversized REVlite midsole is responsive and very comfortable for all day wear.

The New Balance X-90 is available in both men’s and women’s sizes and in multiple colourways at
