The fourth quarterly drop of 2021 from New Balance features some new colourways of their most popular vulcanised shoes including Jamie Foy's pro-model shoe, the 306, and New Balance's latest shoe, the 272. Unfortunately, due to production issues, all of the cupsole shoes in the range have had to be cancelled, so if you're a cupsole devotee then unfortunately you're out of luck, but it's not the end of the world, we still have some cupsole shoes left from the last collection including the Brandon Westgate 508, 440 Highs, and 288 Sport.
One of our favourite colourways from the drop has got to be this icy Grey/Blue colourway of Jamie Foy's pro model shoe, the 306. These are some of New Balance's most popular shoes thanks to their amazing durability and comfort, with the N-Durance rubber outsole providing lasting durability. The New Balance Abzorb insole provides plenty of added padding for comfort and impact protection, making these vulcanised shoes perfect for daytime chillers, or for skaters looking for some extra cushioning for when they're getting buck. I mean they're Jamie Foy's pro model shoe, they've got to be able to take some serious impact.
The 306 also gets treated to another bangin' colourway, this tasteful Olive green number with some camo and orange accents. You can't go wrong with olive green shoes, and the orange accents really help give these shoes some additional vibrancy. The camo tongue is a nice touch as well, who doesn't love a bit of camo? Safe to say nobody will see you coming in these bad boys. We're also still waiting on one last shoe to be delivered, another colourway of Jamie Foy's signature 306, so make sure you keep an eye on our Instagram for when they arrive to avoid missing out.
The latest addition to New Balance Numeric's footwear line, the 272, is back with a sleek new black and gum colourway. The 272s have been really popular since their release, with their vulcanised construction and one-piece suede toe offering incredible boardfeel, grip, and durability, making them perfect for all kinds of street skating.
That's enough chit-chat though. Head to the shop to browse the full range of New Balance Numeric shoes available at Cardiff Skateboard Club. Safe.
