A popular staple of the New Balance running-inspired shoes changes only its name, from the 993 to the 990. Everything wearers have come to love about the shoe remains. Main FeaturesWeight: 8.1 ounces Reflective detailing enhances visibility. The blown-rubber forefoot adds lightweight cushioning. Additional InformationSince its debut in the heart of the 2008 holiday season, the New Balance 993 has delivered consistent cushioning and stability in a running-shoe format, none of which changed when it became the 990 in April 2012. The New Balance 990 is built for the mild-to-moderate overpronator, or those whose feet tend to roll inward after heelstrike. The 990 provides stability for these feet, allowing for a smooth transition through the stride.
