Here are better pics of the wildstyle 990 posted yesterday, the M990EXBM, now also said to be a tribute to Japanese console games. The upper looks to be made of white leather, black patent leather and purple suede/nubuck, along with rainbow laces and an embroidered logo on the heel.

The sole however is totally different from the previous photo. Instead of NB’s Zip soles with shock-absorbing struts this model features a large dose of Abzorb® EX, with the air pocket around the outside.

“Abzorb® EX is a combination of New Balance’s premium Abzorb® foam and a peripheral pocket of non-pressurized air that is encapsulated in an engineered thermoplastic.” — NB

    These are pretty bad – the sole is from the M1000 which have been seen earlier in silver and in gold.
