Ever wondered what all the hype about football is? This is probably a good starting point.

Like many, we weren’t too sure what to make of it when New Balance entered skateboarding. But damn, they’re holding their own, especially when introducing the new NM288. A football inspired kick, with all the comfort and tech they could get their hands on. Built to handle its fair share of abuse – thanks to a reinforced one-piece toe.

– Internal hidden toe protection for added durability.

– Lightly padded collar for comfort and protection

– Crafting in the heel to help absorb impact.

–Ndurance rubber outsole for superior grip and durability.


These puppies are now available at finer skate stores around the country, or alternatively grab ’em online here.
