For Teddy Santis, it's been a busy year. Aside from his various Aimé Leon Dore projects, Santis debuted his contributions to New Balance's MADE in USA line earlier this year. Now, after reworking the 990v1 and 990v3, Santis offers the 990v2 in yet another simple yet refined colorway. The silhouette is a familiar one for the line with several pairs already hitting shelves this year.
This time around, a "Black" makeover is selected with the 990v2 utilizing the color on its upper made of pig suede. While the "N" logo is presented in this form, a white outline allows for it to stand out rather than carry a completely tonal look. Gray suede overlays pair with an off-white mesh base while a cream shade lands on the laces and tongue. This shade continues at the ABZORB midsole which is designed to absorb impact. Rounding out the pair, a premium synthetic suede sockliner combines with a black rubber outsole.
The latest entry in Teddy Santis' New Balance MADE in USA line is hitting shelves July 7 via New Balance and select retailers at a price of $195 USD.
In case you missed it, New Balance has further explored the slip-on trend with its New Balance Clog.
