Junya Watanabe MAN and New Balance have teamed up for a set of suede-tinged Numeric 379s — a sleek silhouette from the footwear label’s skateboarding line — in colorways of beige, navy and black. This follows a bright yellow COMP100 the two brands unveiled back in March.

Starting at the top of the shoe is a leather tongue tag stamped with “New Balance” and “NUMERIC 379” branding, followed by a set of flat laces that cover the forefoot. Majority of the shoe’s design has been kept tonal, offering a crisp, minimal look that places an emphasis on its supple textures. Canvas appears around the collars, complemented by smooth full-grain leather along the rear quarters, while the rest of the body boasts lightly brushed suede. New Balance’s woven “N” logo at the sidewalls and a white midsole marked with “JWCdGMAN” at the heel finalizes the shoe’s understated design.

Junya Watanabe MAN and New Balance’s Numeric 379 will be available on September 11 on select retailers like SSENSE and END. for $225 USD.
