The first update to the original, 1982 990 didn’t occur until 1998. It took another fourteen years before 2012’s v3 set a new standard for technical running shoe design. As the first 990 of the 21st century, the 990v3’s design represented a marked visual departure from now classic features of the v1 and v2, as the introduction of a breathable, mesh upper and a more spacious overlay design, along with combined ABZORB and ENCAP cushioning established a streamlined, modern look and feel for the legendary silhouette. JJJJound’s MADE 990v3 employs a tonal, olive colorway, applied across the subtle textural contrast of a nubuck overlaid mesh upper, highlighting the painstaking attention to detail of MADE construction and the precision engineering of the 990’s performance legacy.
