The 9060 was born in 2022, embodying a fresh interpretation of design elements found in the 99X collection. This shoe quickly solidified its position as a pivotal force for New Balance in 2023 and became one of the brand's essential lifestyle offerings as they ventured into 2024.
Although the hybrid model lacks the same legendary backstory as the 2002R or 550, which is crucial for sneaker enthusiasts, it has not prevented the 90/60 from becoming one of the top contenders in the casual sneaker industry.
With its frequent release of inline color options and occasional collaborations, the 90/60 has successfully captured the perfect combination of vintage appeal and contemporary allure that remains highly sought after.
The 90/60, typically seen in suede constructions, now presents itself in a leather/mesh combination, with black taking center stage. A deep royal mesh foundation is complemented by striking teal overlays and a gentle touch of pink on the fore-foot pods and tongue, exuding a nocturnal energy as it approaches the end of the night.
For a more detailed perspective, we can take a glance at the gallery in this article, where New Balance currently offers these at a price of $150.
