For those who haven’t noticed, NB# has been undergoing some reconstruction of sorts and it’s all for the better. Since departing from Black Box Distribution, they’re currently working towards a new direction, team models and pro models.
While they didn’t have a booth at the last Agenda in LBC, some of their representatives were sporting this mysterious model featured above. Could this be what NB# designers are cooking up? Since their inception into the skate footwear game, many have scolded New Balance Numeric for not designing the obvious i.e. redesigning their popular commercial models into skate-ready models for us to enjoy. We have nothing against their current selection of footwear but we’d be lying if we didn’t say we side with the majority. In fact, if this 576 colorway was on a simple cupsole construction, we’d be all over it and so would you.
If this nameless model is currently being
constructed perfected, something tells us that their mesh paneling will be reinforced enough to handle the abrasion from any and all of your kickflips. Hopefully this skate-able 574 gets produced and if so, please NB#, make it in this colorway. K? Thx. <3.
