Paying homage to classic ‘90s sports shoes with its daring white, blue and yellow colouring, these gum-soled 1010 Tiago Shoes from New Balance Numeric signify the very first signature model for the influential pro-skater Tiago Lemos. Durable and abrasion-resistant suede is paired with breathable mesh-trimmed fabrics for the uppers, whilst a full-length dual-density FuelCell is complemented by the molded Ortholite insole for additional step-by-step comfort. With impact resistance in mind, a reinforced FantomFit heel stabiliser is implemented into the heel, whilst a pre-built toe cap across the front helps battle unwanted scuffs and scrapes. Superior grip and traction is mastered by its rough-textured outsole with the padded collar and zonal pods across the heel help to promote active stability across any high-energy skate style. Crisp-white puffy laces offer a stark contrast to the sky-blue padded foam tongue, whilst the pops of golden yellow across the embroidered ‘N’ side panels, the recessed 4-eyelet lacing system and the jagged edge seams of the ovalised ankle collar and ‘NB# 1010’ branded tongue helps provide these slightly chunky skate shoes with a contemporary sense of character.
Known for his ‘90s inspired style and fun-loving approach to skate, there’s no real surprise as to why the 1010 was chosen to represent recently appointed team-member Tiago Lemos’ first signature shoe. Combining skate specificity with contemporary desire, the Numeric 1010 Tiago is ingenuity at its best, whilst the archive-revived trims pay homage to New Balance’s lengthy sportswear past.
