    Look what I found on NB's website. Looks like the New Balance 990v5. Thoughts? For me, v4 is #1.

    V4 is better I think. Maybe some decent color ways I’d be down. If they are as comfy as the v4 I’d be in to a pair

    Is this the inside of the shoe?

    Yeah it’s too clean/minimal for me from those colorways/angles :/

    Is there anyway we could get a link for that? I’ve been looking at NBs website and I must not see it

    That piece by the collar is like what’s on the X-90

    Right click on any of the product photos on the NB site, open image in new tab, modify the url with whatever model number. In this case, m990gl5, m990nv5 and m990bk5. The 02 in the URL can be replaced with 03 04 and 06 for most. That will give you other views of the product...found a bunch of upcoming v4 by guessing the product codes. Final edition v4 is a must!

    V5 almost looks like a take down model compared to v4

    The v5 doesn’t have enough overlaying , looks too simple. Those are definitely the ones I saw in hand at the 1982 event though.

    need that side by side comparison. i'm not worried about that plastic piece since it can be modified to different materials. Also, I think NB corrected complaints about lateral toe box view. I'm still team v4.

    I like the new upper, even with the plastic bit. The midsole looks weird to me as well though, more so in the gray pair than the other two.
    @feelmeguilty you got me curious with those final editions v4

    More pics of GL5 for those interested. I bet they'll be super comfy.

    990v5 looks like Mercedes ....lack of heel support so use plastic piece (pretty weird )

    aesthetic : v4 > v5

    Here you go, homie. The two final editions. FEG4 and FEB4. FEB4 will be Horween and last one to release. FEG4 is all nubuck and gradient.

    I’m liking these. They look more symmetrical than the v4.

    Both of these shall be mine.
    Repped for posting. Thanks.
    I haven’t been this excited about some shoes in a while.

    v5 arch support is...different / interesting.
    nothing will be better than the carbon fiber on the v3 though

    Not a fan of that midsole whatsoever.
