Inspired by New Balance’s own lifestyle shoes, this Numeric 288S model boasts ultra-durable construction with a smooth white leather toe vamp and wide lace border which encases a mesh inner bootie that comfortably encases the foot. Perforation at the top of the toe panel and on either side of the foot increases ventilation when on the move whilst royal blue leather ‘N’ emblems add signature branding on top of reflective silver backgrounds. The lace fastening is held in place by a wide shaped border above a mesh tongue which has a rectangular synthetic label close to its top edge that displays a ‘NB# 288S’ logo in red. On either side of the heel reflective silver inserts add extra character whilst a woven red loop aids entry with a matching flash of reflective silver. A split red and white lining runs throughout the inside of the shoe alongside an Ortholite sockliner that protects the foot from high impacts. The sturdy outsole is made from rubber and features a C-CAP insert coloured in red and white to match the uppers. Underfoot the tread features an intricate pattern to ensure a high level of grip.
Since 2013, the New Balance Numeric line has been producing stylish, performance driven footwear styles that incorporate the brands rich history within designing running shoes and pairs it with the latest technology developed especially for skateboarding. The 288S offers a high level of durability through the use of selective materials and construction methods that stand up to repetitive wear and impact during demanding skate sessions.
