As the Boston Marathon is set to take place later this month, New Balance renders a themed New Balance 990 model to honor the prestigious race.
This “Made in USA” silhouette comes made with suede, leather, and mesh materials, but also displays a purple base with orange and grey accents throughout for a rich finish. Ironically, these runners also feature marathon tagging along the lace loop and branding of Paul Revere riding a horse at each back heel. And for those who didn’t pay attention in history class, he was the guy who tried to warn the Americans that the British were coming.
Check out additional images below and look for the New Balance 990 “Boston Marathon” available now for $160 through participating retailers like Concepts.
