New York menswear designer Todd Snyder continues his longstanding partnership with New Balance with a budding 990v3. This one persists with his thoughtful beverage theme, casting a lightness to Dark Ale with a full-bodied new release.
The New Balance 990, first released in 1982 as a performance runner, is now a modern-day classic with nostalgic appeal and contemporary appreciation. Snyder updates the all-purpose style with his very intentional artistry and unique tongue-in-cheek humor.
Made in the USA as many New Balance sneakers tend to be, a rich vegetable tanned leather makes its mark on the time-tested style alongside buttery beige suede and micro-mesh fabric. A unique chemical-free tanning process produces a patina that deepens with natural hues as time passes, ensuring each shoe carries a certain individualism.
The Todd Snyder x New Balance 990v3 “Dark Ale” is available now for $199 at www.toddsnyder.com.
