New Balance Numeric

Recent additions to New Balance’s skate-focused Numeric line have introduced a fresh selection of contemporary styles which each bare a variety of features that cater to a variety of needs, styles and fits. Having built a solid skate team since launching in 2013 which includes the likes of Jordan Trahan, Jordan Taylor and Levi Brown, New Balance introduced Thrasher Skater of The Year 2018 and pro rider Jamie Foy’s first pro model in mid-summer with a super clean aesthetic in a selection of colourways with suede uppers and rubber underlays for heightened durability. Alongside this, the latest 913 Westgate Shoes celebrate Brandon Westgate in a distinctive black, yellow and white design.

Enhanced by their own specially developed Ndurance rubber outsoles and foxing tape lines, both the 440 Shoes and 255 Shoes bear low-cut silhouettes with uppers made from a combination of fabrics that reflect the signature minimal New Balance aesthetic. Perforated heel panels on the 440 Shoes add texture to the streamlined profile, in addition to mesh inserts and breathable overlays on the tongue whilst leather accents add a signature touch. Colour tones are fairly muted for AW19 with an emphasis

on black, grey and blue, whilst a red edition of the 379 Shoes adds a burst of colour to the season enhanced by a crisp white rubber outsole and heel overlays.

Released last summer, Tom Knox’s distinctive white, sea salt and turquoise 440 model remains one of the brands most memorable designs and captures the Numeric spirit through super clean uppers, premium materials and quality construction which is destined for everyday wear. Flatspot caught up with Tom following the launch, which you can read here.

Influences from the brands origins within performance running footwear are apparent through lightweight finishes and additional materials have been added in key areas for abrasion resistance. With such a rich history in producing athletic footwear, it’s no surprise the Numeric range provides such strong contenders for performance skate shoes. NB have stayed true to their minimalist, clean finish style appealing to those who appreciate when less is more.
