The skateboarding side of New Balance — its Numeric division — just introduced its latest silhouette last month, the Numeric 480. Reworking the ’80s basketball shoe, it now sees a much more robust and durable build that has just been prepared in an Andrew Reynolds-approved look. The veteran skater joined the Numeric team at the end of last year and is expected to launch his own pro model in the coming years.
For his first take on the Numeric 480, Reynolds has brought a brown and black color composition to the sneaker. Its upper utilizes a blend of suede, leather and synthetic materials as its primarily-brown finish is joined by black underlays and tan at the “N” logo on each side, the laces and tongue tag. FuelCell foam has been included at the all-black sole unit to complete the look.
Release for the Andrew Reynolds x New Balance Numeric 480 in this brown colorway begins on September 15 via select skate shops. Following this, it will be made available via New Balance at a price of $100 USD on September 18 at 12am EDT.
