Another (new) New Balance collaboration will be dropping this weekend as we’ll see the arrival of the WTAPS × New Balance 990v2. The New Balance 990v2 was originally released in 1988 and reissued thereafter, with New Balance’s identity color, gray, reinterpreted through the lens of WTAPS. Following the 992 model of the first collaboration, the embossed texture of the synthetic leather tongue, color straps and heel tabs have been arranged according to the details of the New Balance 998, a personal favorite of WTAPS designer Tetsu Nishiyama. The heel features an embroidered WTAPS logo and an embossed USA logo, while the special shoebox is symbolic of the exceptional collaboration. Fans of the 990v2 can look for the WTAPS × New Balance 990v2 to release at select retailers and online on Friday, September 3rd for a price tag of $260.
Also don’t forget that the Air Jordan 4 WMNS Shimmer is making its way to retailers this weekend!
