Already being available in the US for a while and having debuted in the UK as well, New Balance is now bringing its skate line “Numeric” to the Central European markets of Germany, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Spain.

The collection includes six new shoe models, developed in cooperation with a team of ten professional skateborders belonging to the firm who brought in their expertise.

Adapting New Balance’s long-time know-how in running shoe technologies to create a comfy skate sneaker, the model is well-damped through 2 elements at forefoot and heel and provides an inner toe-protection. The sole is especially constructed to combine the skater’s needs of cushioning as well as grip and board feeling. Purpose-built taped side panels bring stability.

The “868”, first model of the line, will be released in August in two colorways, available at Bonkers Shop Frankfurt, MDCN Distribution Hamburg and Skatedeluxe Eschwege for 120€.
