The New Balance X-90 Gets Grown in The 'Return to Future' Pack
New Balance deserves a place near the top of your list when you're looking for the kind of sneakers that can be worn with smarter outfits. You know, the kind you can get away with wearing to the office. The brand's classic models, like the 574 and the 996, are always pretty dignified options that won't break the bank.
But in the right colorways, even NB's newer models can work well beyond the realm of tee-and-jeans outfits. The X-90, for example, is looking especially grown-up in this new pack called 'Return to Future', dropping locally this Friday. Check it out:
The X-90 is one of New Balance's 2018 models—a contemporary shoe inspired by the vibrant designs of the '90s. It's also New Balance's suitably subdued take on the whole 'chunky sole' trend that's taken over sneakers lately. And like many of the brand's new shoes, the original colorways were loud and out.
Thankfully, the 'Return to Future' pack applies more muted colors (gray and dark green) of better materials (premium pig suede) on the X-90. The result is a line-up of sneakers for smarter, sharper outfits. Pair them with polo shirts and button-down shirts—perhaps even a lightweight, unstructured suit—and they'll abide.
The New Balance 'Return to Future' pack drops on Friday, September 7, at select New Balance retailers in the Philippines, including Commonwealth. The 'Return to Future' X-90 retails for P6,295.
