Not to be neglected throughout New Balance‘s otherwise prolific year, New Balance Numeric releases a new colorway of its high-performance Stratford 479 cupsole shoe. Here we find the skateboarding silhouette executed in a tonal black and grey pairing through the upper and rubber outsole. The top portion is composed of abrasion-resistant TPU-bonded suede, constructed with one piece around the toe box to reduce blowouts. While the tongue features breathable laser-perforated mesh, the sole features contrasting dual treads to increase grip and control at key areas. Look for this sneaker at finer skater retailers like Premier for $85 USD.
