When I think of a dad shoe, I think of extreme comfort, functionality and the New Balance 990. This sneaker was the quintessential dad shoe before the trends and has become as much of a staple as the Air Monarch. The 990 was born in 1982 and has kept its signature look ever since. One of the biggest selling points of this shoe is the fact that it is all hand made in the USA. The 990v4 is out now and we’ve been wanting to know, how do you feel about this sneakHER? The shoe was just released in four colorways for the ladies: Vortex, Black, Grey and Silver Mint.

The 990v4 celebrates the great performance and iconic style of the 990’s 30-year-legacy. The upper of each sneaker is made of breathable pigskin suede. These sneakHERs are somewhat neutral and tonal with Vortex and Silver Mint serving as pops of color. The shoe sits atop an ENCAP midsole that provides support and maximum durability.

The 990v4 is perfect for everyday wear and will definitely keep your feet cool and comfy. The dad shoe vibe of this sneaker makes it super easy to create looks with as well. This Made in the USA sneaker is available now for $175 USD. If you’re feeling the 990, you can SHOP THE SNEAKS below. We want to know what you think of these sneaks!
