The men’s M990V4 and the women’s W990V4 have the classic look but are more cushioned and supportive
EDITOR’S RATING:The 990 shoe has become somewhat of the defining and most iconic shoe for New Balance. The latest addition – the 990V4 is true to the original and takes even a step ahead of its predecessors in all the excellent support and cushioning it offers. These running shoes have the traditional 990 look with excellent heel design and an overall stable look. In this New Balance 990V4 review we will share all the pros and cons of the model.
The soles are improved and the forefoot is made of Blown Rubber, the midsole is from ABZORB, and the collar is dual density. The New Balance M990V4 shoes provide excellent stability and support, especially for those runners with a forefront strike running style. The flexible soles allow for easy running up and downwards, but are still solid enough to be able to endure running through big bumps and uneven surfaces.
These running shoes have ENCAP midsoles which help add to the support and improving acceleration when running.
The upper is made of leather and mesh, and is lightweight and breathable. The toe box is spacy and comfortable.
These sneakers have very comfortable ankle support, which helps protect the ankle from rolling while running.
