New Balance finally enters the skateboarding market with its first Numeric shipment this September. This is an event years in the making about which we’ve known for nearly ten months, and now the first four NB Numeric shoes are ready for retail. They’ve got a nice variety here, starting with the New Balance Numeric Logan 637 which takes its upper lines and exposed heel cup from the legendary 574 runner. The Quincy 254‘s ankle also channels some NB classic running vibes but that design is closer to a traditional derby skate sneaker. The Brighton 344 is sure to satisfy the same fans who enjoy Nike SB’s Stefan Janoski series and rounding out the set with a mostly one-piece design with lines taken from the 576 is the Stratford 479. All four are shown in greater detail below and available now from shops like Premier.
