New Balance and Levi’s collaborate on denim-inspired 990v3 sneakers

Following the release of, Levi’s and New Balance are re-collaborating for a limited-edition 990v3 sneaker – a co-branded upcycled denim collection.

The New Balance 990 series is a definitive outline for the sneaker brand, gaining credit with the iconic smooth lines and the grey palette.

The sneakers will be available in two colorways, Indigo and Grey, which are inspired by each brand’s color tones.

Both of the sneakers feature an extra-hairy suede overlay inspired by the back of Levi’s leather patches, plus a base layer that’s made up of Levi’s famed Shrink-To-Fit denim — which is frequently used on the fan-favorite 501 jeans from the denim brand.

The gray color contrasts its two shades with cream detailing and white laces, and the indigo colorway uses a mix of blues in shades of Levi’s denim with cream laces.

Both pairs include a co-branded N logo, taken to the next level with a custom-designed Levi’s tab stitched to the quarter panel.

The two-tone ENCAP midsole cushioning provides support with lightweight foam with a durable polyurethane rim.
