After teasing fans for months, we finally get photos of Joe Freshgoods‘ follow-up collaboration with New Balance on the 990v3 dubbed “Outside Clothes”. Using clothes meant for playing outside as kids for inspiration, the Chicago native and co-owner of Fat Tiger Workshop’s storytelling through sneakers is unmatched.
The bright blue mesh base contrasts the khaki and tan suede overlays. Khaki is seen again on the upper part of the tongue and laces, with the New Balance “N” insignia seen in the same bright blue with a transparent casing. Kelly green accenting is seen throughout, with “JFG” printed on the lateral heel instead of “990v3” typically seen and “Outside” and “Clothes” stitched on the heel. The midsole continues with the hues mentioned above, using a soft ABZORB midsole with Encap EVA for stability. Co-branding is seen on the insoles that have clouds and the sky printed on the insole.
After a local Chicago release at Garfield Park, the Joe Freshgoods x New Balance 990v3 “Outside Clothes” is set to drop on September 10th on newbalance.com and at select New Balance account retailers for $219.99. Check out the photos below from New Balance and Joe’s Instagram below.
