The legendary 990 is one of the most successful running silhouettes in the entire New Balance catalogue. Originally developed with the express intent of being the priciest, top of the line running shoe on the market (which in 1982 meant hitting the $100 price tag), the 990 is one of those models that took on a life of its own, outside of the specific athletic field it was designed for.
The New Balance M990v5 "Mumbo Sauce" pays homage to the popular condiment that was produced in Washington, DC by dressing the uppers in red-orange materials (same color as Mumbo Sauce). Popularized in takeout restaurants in Chicago, IL, Mumbo Sauce is simliar to a BBQ or Plum Sauce but tangy and sweet and is usually partnered with fried chicken wings, french fries, fried shrimp, or fried rice.
