With its roots as an indoor football shoe, the New Balance Numeric 288 Shoes feature an overhaul of updates to make them the ultimate shoe in terms of durability. The premium suede upper is resistant to wear, with a one-piece toe for a reliable silhouette. Evergreen teal dominates the colour of the upper, with the lateral panels decorated by a silver N logo for iconic branding. Breathable mesh supports the collar for both cushioning and ventilation - added to by perforations throughout. Final detailing on the upper includes a leather patch on the heel with vinyl “NB#” branding. This light yet summery colour is brought together on a clean white midsole.
Although its design is inspired by sportswear, the functional details prove how well it can perform in a skating circumstance. The cupsole in the heel helps support your underfoot against impact, while maintaining good boardfeel. Additionally Numeric’s signature ‘N-durance rubber’ has been used for the outsole to provide consistent levels of traction and durability.
Numeric’s launch in 2013 combined New Balance’s long standing history providing reliable sportswear, across a range of disciplines, to the need for technical silhouettes in skateboarding.
