Todd Snyder x New Balance 990v3 “Dark Ale”

The 990v3 “Dark Ale” is the darker-hued sibling to last years exclusive sneaker, crafted in the USA once again from premium vegetable tanned leather. The menswear designer’s favorite brew, pale ale, is used as the sneakers reference point for its full-bodied colorway. Sporting a mixture of premium leather, suede, and micro-mesh, the 990v3 “Dark Ale” is designed to get better with age thanks to a chemical-free tanning process. Wearing the sneaker will encourage it to develop a natural patina, a nod to Snyder’s appreciation for traditional Mid-Western quality craftsmanship. The “Dark Ale” iteration sits atop a white and cream colored ENCAP sole unit featuring a carbon fibre spring plate for added support and comfort. 3M heel tabs round off the collaborative pair. Priced at $199 USD, head to toddsnyder.com to pick up your pair of the exclusive Todd Snyder x New Balance 990v3 “Dark Ale.”
