 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION OVERVIEW

New Balance 990v3

 

RELEASE DATE:

  • October 2012

 

The men's 990 features a design with a universal appeal which replaces the classic 993 shoe.  The 990 has a  premium pigskin upper with mesh inserts for breathability to the stability-enhancing ABZORB® midsole plus ENCAP to promote a healthy gait.

The legendary Made in USA 990 series comes full circle with the newest release from New Balance.   Whether you are running 5-25 miles a day, the seriously comfortable 990 takes you everywhere in timeless casual style.

Since its last debut in the 2011 season, the New Balance 990 V3 has delivered a consistent cushioning and stability running shoe.  The New Balance 990 V3 is built for the mild-to-moderate overpronator, or those whose feet tend to roll inward after the heelstrike.

The 990 provides good stability for the overpronator feet, allowing for a smooth transition through each stride.  At the heart of this stability support is the midsole.   It consists of C-Cap® molded ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) foam with a single-density polyurethane post to support the instep.

The ABZORB DTS® combines ABSORB® and ABSORB SBS® foams to provide the most optimal cushioning. ENCAP® is a core of soft cushioning EVA with a tough polyurethane rim for added support and durability.  The upper consists of supportive pigskin, synthetic and mesh in a running-inspired design. A dual-density collar uses a softer-density foam against the ankle for cushioning, and a firmer-density foam for support

These shoes felt good for mid to long training runs.  Also, I have used them for a few half marathons  which the shoe felt sturdy and solid.
