Bridging the gap between retro style and modern function, the all-black 440 Shoes from New Balance Numeric are inspired by the brand’s classic ‘70s style running shoes from its ever-expanding archive. Bringing track and field trims to the realm of skate, these low-profile brushed suede and breathable mesh skate shoes are styled with a C-CAP heel wedge for added volume and impact absorption when paired with any active skate style, whilst the design’s lightweight body offers a more comfortable sense of boardfeel and more grounded wear. Dual-layered uppers help boost abrasion resistance, whilst the precision-engineered full length cupsole and the grippy all-black Ndurance outsole make this active remodelling well-equipped to cater to any multi-terrained setting. Punch-through perforations accentuate the slanted suede heel brace as the black-leather embroidered ‘N’ decal across the comfort-minded meshed interior and exterior side panels helps lock-in New Balance’s sought-after reputation for exceptional quality. A recessed 6-eyelet lacing system is paired with colour-matched flat black laces on top of the padded black-tab tongue, whilst iconic ‘New Balance’ silver and black branding signs off the design beneath the jet-black protective ankle collar.
Inspired by their lengthy collection of running-based profiles, New Balance Numeric combines old-school silhouettes with contemporary skate purpose to create the streamlined and wholly authentic NM440. A cutting-edge profile that is not restricted to board-based sports, the New Balance Numeric 440 offers the very best in performance, breathability and purpose when it comes down to generating a sneaker well-suited to any active lifestyle.
