New Balance 993 'Grey' Made in USA


  The history of New Balance 99X series is intriguing to say the least. I think that the 40th anniversary of the series is the right moment to summarise the whole line below.

The 99X series, initiated with the 990 model in 1982, came out irregularly and not chronologically. The successor to the coolly received grey runners did not appear until 1986, under the number 995. The following years saw the debut of the models respectively: 996, 997, 998 and 999 (the favourite model of the descendant of the Kennedy clan). We reached the end of the 1990s and, in 1998, the 990 saw its improved version, the 990V2. This was followed by the 991 (2001), 992 (2006) and the 993 (2008), which crowned the series. Also in 2008, a third version appeared - the 990V3. In 2016, new versions of the 997.5 and 990V4 saw the light of day. And in 2018, the most interesting version - 990V5 - had its premiere. Next year will see the announced sixth incarnation - 990V6. The calculus is simple, the number 994 is missing. Will they see the light of day in the future? I think so.

Returning to the New Balance 993 Made in USA model, their next retro comes off perfectly. The shoes are a combination of the 991 and 992 silhouettes, the quintessential 'greys' from NB. The classic, timeless grey set on a white and grey sole, highlighted with 3M accents, is a real 'must have' for every fan of NB shoes. This is a premium collection made in the USA in a limited number of pairs. The Intelligent Choice.
