Take A Closer Look At The Patta x New Balance 990v3 ‘Keep Your Family Close’ Trainer
The Patta x New Balance 990v3 ‘Keep Your Family Close’ trainer gives a nod to Patta’s love for family values with a very special ‘Made in USA’ release.
When it comes to trainer collaborations the Amsterdam streetwear brand, Patta, don’t mess about. Kicking it off with visible air back in 2006, there’s always been something a little bit different about Patta’s collabs. From Carhartt WIP to classic Club C’s, Patta’s family values have long played a key role in the collaboration design process. This latest collaboration with New Balance is no different. For October 2022 we are now treated to the Patta x New Balance 990v3 ‘Keep Your Family Close’ trainer which adds some traditional family values to the original ‘Made in USA’ trainer from 2012.
Following on from the New Balance 990v1 trainer all the way back from 1982 and the New Balance 990v2 from 1998, the New Balance 990v3 celebrated the 30th anniversary of the original 80s runner. Boasting state of the art trainer tech like ENCAP sole technology the 990v3 has remained a mainstay of the NB sneaker world. The latest 990v3 release with Patta will mark the 3rd collaboration with the Amsterdam streetwear brand with a family orientated spin on the celebrated NB sneaker.
Boasting a tree inspired design with a nod to Patta’s Surinamese roots, the collaboration 990v3 features suede & mesh uppers with hints of bright green and a speckled midsole for a truly unique look. Other highlights include NB’s world renowned ENCAP sole technology alognside ‘Made in USA’ branding to the tongue tab & Patta branding to the heel counter.
