The original 990 designers were tasked with creating the best running shoe on the market. The finished product exceeded expectations. When it first hit shelves in 1982, the 990s sported elegant pastel colors as well as a triple-digit price tag never seen before. For running enthusiasts and trendsetters, the 990 was a brand synonymous with quality and refined taste. Since 1982 there have been design updates, and a wider choice of colors, however, the very imitated spirit of the status symbol that the 990 offered has never changed. The 990v3 boasts a structure with premium leather upper and cushioning with ENCAP midsole. This particular edition was edited by Teddy Santis.
