New Balance Numeric NM868 Black / Grey
New Balance numeric introduces the 868, their most technically advanced shoe to date. After analyzing data collected by New Balance's sports research lab, they designed the 868 with a dual-durometer C-Cap midsole to provide cushioning in the high impact zones without sacrificing board feel. Fantom Tape is used to add support to the breathable mesh quarter panels. The heel of the 868 features N2, a New Balance running technology that provides stability and impact protection where skateboarders need it most. C-CAP midsole provides cushioning and support. Closed cell polyurethane (PU) insert protection provides super impact protection and consistent fit. Fantom tape provides bonded lightweight strategic support.

Internal hidden toe protection for added durability. N2 low-to-the-ground cushioning technology is a responsive, durable, sustainable cushioning system in a low-profile execution. N-Durance rubber compound for maximum outsole durability. Synthetic/mesh upper. Please Note: NB# are performance skate shoes and have a narrow fit.
