New Balance X90 is the Best of Both Worlds

The New Balance X90 is the label’s newest iteration for the chunky shoe trend. What makes it unique is that it is also partly a dad shoe.


Last April, the New Balance 990 took the spotlight at GRIND’s editorial. The Japanese lifestyle publication honored the classic runner through a feature in a new editorial. There were four different colorways in the images.

Each of the featured scenes put models in different outfits and scenarios. The highlight was on the runner’s versatile nature.

It can work with casual sportswear outfits to rugged workwear settings and even with a formal ensemble. The model can cover a broad range of styles.

Chunky Dad Shoe

New Balance is one of the, shall we say, pioneers when it comes to the chunky shoe trend. The all-American brand is almost synonymous with chunky kicks.

The X90 is an update on its silhouette with a contemporary twist. It blends together the signature look and modern, sporty details.

The sneakers include a breathable, mostly mesh upper with panels of leather on the heel and above the midsole. It has alternating eyelets along the lacing unit; giving it an offbeat vibe.

The bulky REVlite midsole completes the retro-futuristic look. It comes in the following colorways: “Moonbeam,” “Flat White,” Black/Thistle,” and “Black/Navy.”
