Welcoming a deep-burgundy colouring across its upgraded 288 Sport silhouette, New Balance Numeric have once again created a performance-orientated skate shoe with premium-quality boardfeel and creative consistency at the heart of its design. Styled with durable suede and breathable mesh uppers for greater comfort and increased air-flow during hard-hitting sessions, these low-profile sneakers are updated to host a supportive C-CAP midsole, EVA molded sockliner and an interior bootie to provide a snug and secure fit across any active lifestyle. Crisp white foxing tape complements the upgraded staggered-tread outsole for greater abrasion resistance, whilst the rolled-edge seams and the reinforced colour-match stitching helps boost the designs overall structural integrity. Stark-white trims define the padded ‘N’ side-wall decals above precision-implemented stacked perforations, whilst the recessed 6-eyelet flat lacing system helps keep the foam-filled mesh ‘NB# 288’ branded tongue secured neatly across the arch of the foot. The four-way stretch collar is constructed from a single-cut of padded fabric, whilst the burgundy-hued ankle tab above the royal-gold textured trim matches seamlessly with the two-tone pop of colour seen across the base of the refreshed, twin rubber cupsole.
Paying homage to its classic 288 muse, the NM288 Sport has been specifically redesigned to cater to the exact needs of any energetic, skate-led lifestyle. Pairing undeniable comfort and cushioning with contemporary flair, the streamlined and highly sought-after 288 Sport is New Balance ingenuity and innovation at its best.
