Haven Announce New Balance 990v5 Collaboration
Release: 6 December 2019

At first glance, this just looks like another pair of blacked-out New Balance 990v5s. Upon closer inspection, this is actually a collaboration with Canadian boutique, Haven.

The biggest modification to those with a sharp eye is the modified toe box. Usually with two strips running vertically, this panel is instead hidden and only reveals itself when hit with flash. And there is a lot of 3M-reflective here, imbued into the CORDURA-reinforced upper. It’s not just hardy materials found throughout though: Haven enlists Chicago-based tannery, Horween, to line the insides with leather.

It all shapes up to an almost indestructible 990v5. They drop on December 6 at Haven.
