Restocks: New Balance MADE in USA 990v6 “Black”

The fan-favourite 990v6 "Black" is getting a much-needed restock in New Balance's Japanese stores.


New Balance MADE in USA is a long-standing brand that has recently gained popularity due to the high-quality construction, aesthetic designs and unparalleled comfort of its offerings. Its flagship sneaker series centers around the original NB990 released in 1982 and now contains 6 unique forms of the iconic design, with the 990v6 being the latest update to the silhouette.

The New Balance 990v6 “Black” is a fan-favorite for a reason–it features a tasteful mixture of deep black suede and mesh, contrasted by castlerock-colored elements such as the New Balance logo, overlays, inner lining, laces and midsole sections. Though the colorway is almost entirely monochrome, the variety of material textures allows the sneaker to walk the tightrope of being both eyecatching as well as neutral enough to fit in with any outfit, a characteristic trait of New Balance sneakers.

The New Balance 990v6 “Black” originally released on 7 April 2023 for a retail price of JPY 36,300 (US$195), but was re-released by popular demand on 17 May 2023 via New Balance Japan and online retailers such as BEAMS. The 990v6 “Black” is also available in men and women’s sizes on the SNKRDUNK App.
