New Balance first created their Numeric skate line back in 2013, with the first team consisting of PJ Ladd, Arto Saari, Tom Kerangelov and Levi Brown. Since then NB has continued to make incredible additions to the line-up, with 2018 S.O.T.Y Jamie Foy, Tom Knox, Tiago Lemos, Frankie Villani, Jordan Trahan, Jordan Taylor and Brandon Westgate to name a handful.
With former Sumo/Nike SB/éS chief at the helm, Numeric was always gonna be in safe hands and it continues to go from strength to strength. Although NB offers a good selection of vulcanised shoes it's really in the technology that they're really excelling, whilst still keeping the silhouettes clean, simple and good to skate. As always with New Balance, the higher the number of the model the more tech the shoe gets.
