New Balance 993 vs. New Balance 990


New Balance introduced the new 990 not too long ago. Its respective MSRP is $149.99. The 993's MSRP dropped to $119.99 from $144.99.

It seems as if though New Balance is pushing the 990 as their new "signature" shoe.

I buy a pair of the 9-series every year; in fact, it is the only tennis shoe I own. Mine are getting in bad shape again and I need a new pair.

Which of these gray beauties do you think is better?

Original New Balance 993's:



New Balance 990's:



I'm thinking about the 990's because I want something different, but the 993's are just perfect.

Opinions?

What's your "go-to" athletic style shoe? I'm honestly curious.

For the people who dislike New Balance; please, can you share your favorite athletic shoe? I think it would be interesting!

Meh. I'm not a fan of the flamboyant neon colored Nike shoes BUT at the same time, they would be my backup choice.

I prefer Brooks/Asics/etc. brands that are, I guess, a little "boring".

I have dress shoes, 993's, and Lucchese boots. All I wear.

Those aren't athletic shoes imo, people wear those NBs to be "frat' or "cool"

I thought these were "hip"? Like idk, I thought it had a certain following? I'm not sure about it, I just know I like the shoe.

They're the latest frat trend that I don't quite understand.

I got 2 pair of 730s for 39.99 a piece. I can't understand spending over 100 for a much clunkier shoe.

They are actually very comfortable. I decided to grab some new nikes this time around though for no particular reason other than I wanted something new.

yes. something new. Nike is a good brand. I wear their Dri-Fit shorts to work out in. I don't like their tees. Fit bad and I prefer normal cotton. There's this brand called Lacoste that makes a solid crewneck tee shirt to work out in.

I see a lot of Nikes worn by douchebags, unfortunately. I've yet to meet a douchebag that wore 993's. Or anyone wear these.
