size? Launch New Balance 990v5 World Exclusive
size? have just unveiled their latest worldwide exclusive in the form of the bold and vibrant New Balance 990v5. And to celebrate the release of the trainer later this month, they’ve taken the footwear to somewhere ‘at the heart of every small British community’; the local corner shop.
Throughout the ’80s, branding on packaging and signage was splashed across products in bold, brash typefaces. The size? exclusive New Balance 990v5 draws inspiration from the colours found on these products in these corner shops, featuring a palette of blue, yellow and pink and applying them to the latest rendition of the celebrated runner.
Like all New Balance greats, the upper of the 990v5 has the traditional combination of high-quality suede and strong, fully breathable mesh. Royal blue suede panels cover the outer layer of materials, while yellow mesh and pink perforated nubuck sit underneath.
Things are finished off with some reflective hits which can be found on the toe, heel counter and on the bold ‘N’ signature side branding. size? are one a very small handful of retailers to be given their own exclusive take on the 990v5 this year and they’re limited to just 500 pairs.
The New Balance 990v5 size? worldwide exclusive will be available via the size? previews app, and in selected size? stores from Friday 28th June and will set you back £180 for a pair. Find out more over at the size? Website.
