Coming Soon: DTLR-Exclusive New Balance 990v3 “Wild Style”

DTLR is for the children. That’s why, when we teamed up with New Balance for a shop-exclusive 990v3, we came back with this kid-friendly colorway.

Dubbed the New Balance 990v3 “Wild Style,” this new iteration takes its inspiration from the unbound creativity that kids possess. Open any child’s school notebook and you’re sure to find some wildly imaginative doodles with out-there color combinations. This colorway boasts a palette that resembles those found in crayon boxes and colored-pencil cases – it’s our ode to those priceless pieces of art.

The upper is features a grey mesh base with colorful suede and leather panels laid over top. The side panels and mudguards are done in a “Vibrant Sky” suede, while the heel panels are done in rich “Vibrant Orange” suede. “Electric Red” leather overlays are placed at the toeboxes as well as the side panels, bordering the “Vibrant Yellow” “N” logo overlays.

That same yellow tone also informs the laces, which cover padded-mesh tongues done in “Vibrant Spring Green.” The color also appears on the sneaker’s leather heel panel. The uppermost eyestays and perforated leather heel panels are done in soft pink to compliment the “Vibrant Sky” hits, while a “Vibrant Violet” hue colors the sockliners and side-panel suede overlays.

Moving towards the sole, you’ll find foam midsoles that are blocked with the upper’s three most prominent colors. The release is complete with rubber outsoles done in two different shades of purple.

The New Balance 990v3 “Wild Style” will be available at and DTLR stores in grade-school, pre-school, and infant sizes.
