Growing up, nothing was more exciting than hearing the ice cream man play his hypnotic melody that will have me running to catch the truck. Boys and girls throughout the neighborhood yearning to have a Popsicle on a scorching hot day. One of my favorite Popsicles is the firecracker because of its infused flavors of cherry, white lemon, and blue raspberry. Clearly, New Balance know my taste buds and sense of style by releasing the US990v4 in the same colorway.

Designed by June Sanders, the New Balance US990v4 has patriotic inspiration that will take your fourth of July outfit to a new level. Intricate details throughout the sneaker enhances the appearance, while the original grey pays homage to an enriched history of classic running footwear. Speaking of grey, the blown-rubber forefoot provides needed cushioning that is agile and lightweight. Red, white, and blue is strongly represented from the dip-dyed shoes laces, down to the 990 logo with the shimmering wings on both sides. If you are a proud American or simply want to stay fresh for the summer, these exclusive kicks are a must-have in your collection.

The New Balance US990v4 will be out 05/25/2018 on and at select DTLR locations. Be sure to cop your pair while they are still available.
