to start it off, same thing i posted in the ald thread:

the v6 looks so much better than the v5, love that they brought back all the different layers typically found on older 990 and 99x models and gave it a hoka-esque sole, and that on foot shot really seals it


supposedly dropping april 2022

What’s everyone’s favorite silhouette? I’ve always liked 998s

I love everything they've done with Casablanca. The new 57/40 silhouette is pretty good too, just have too many sneakers at the moment...

Gotta say the classic runner shape of the 1300 holds a special place in my heart - first NB I every purchased (tan/brown "National Parks" pack) and served me well for about 8 years. Got the CLS as a replacement since I kept missing out on the 1300JP. Initially thought the 990V1s would be similar but found them to be much less comfortable than the 1300s..

Still on the fence on the V6s because they look "sleek" but the outsole images got me interested.

Opinion seems to be pretty split on the v6. Personally, I like them.

I like the 990v6, I think the chunkier vibe of the shoe is more in line with current trends. Hope its just as comfortable as the 990v5.

When those dropped a few weeks ago/maybe a month, I went to my local NB store that morning here in NYC. I really didn't look into it but it was solely sold online. Missed out.

I hit on the J Crew 992 over the weekend but I feel like they run big. Anyone have the same experience with 992s?

Also, which color laces look better in the pic below?

I like the blue/orange laces. 992 run the same as 990 series and 550 for me.
thanks bro. These are a sz 8........was expecting sizing to be consistent across silhouettes but I guess i assumed wrong.

If anyone has a pair in 7.5 to sell please PM me!!

How's the comfort on the 992s aside from the sizing issues?
