Product Spotlight - New Balance Numeric 480 x 303 Boards

By Dan Bunn


Teaming up with 303 Boards and Jeremy Fish for a deadly threeway collab, the latest New Balance Numeric 480 colourway is a must-have for any sneakerhead!

Levelling up the collab game with a trifecta of dopeness, New Balance Numeric have teamed up with Colorado-based skate shop, 303 Boards, who have then teamed up with San Francisco-based artist, Jeremy Fish, for what is easily the most swagged out shoe we've ever seen. With the 480 already achieving cult status in the footwear game, the New Balance Numeric 480 x 303 x Jeremy Fish is a must-have for any sneaker heads with its unique Brown / Pink colourway that's loaded up with fancy details - like a custom shoe bag and keychain - to make things even more exciting.

While Colorado might be a fair while away from San Francisco, Jeremy Fish and 303 Boards share a connection through Fish's gang, the Silly Pink Bunnies (SPB), the largest chapter of which is in Denver, Colorado where 303 is based. As a result, the New Balance Numeric 480 x 303 skate shoe features various nods to both the SPB crew and 303 skate shop while the colourway is inspired by Fish's local San Francisco neighbourhood.


Known for his bold style and surreal, animal-based designs, Jeremy Fish is an extremely successful artist in the realms of skateboarding and hip hop, having produced graphics for skate brands like Real, Element and Foundation as well as album covers for Aesop Rock. After moving to San Francisco to go to art school in 1994 with the hope of designing skateboard graphics, Fish then went on to get a job screenprinting skateboards for Think before becoming an art director and illustrator, creating over 400 graphics.

Jeremy Fish has since made San Francisco his home, providing several public sculptures and murals and even becoming San Francisco City Hall's first artist-in-residence. With the colourway celebrating his love for the city, the new Jeremy Fish 480 is the third in a series of four shoes by the artist in collaboration with New Balance Numeric and 303 Boards with equally bangin' limited colourways in the 288 and 272.


As to be expected when you've got an artist of Jeremy's calibre involved, the New Balance Numeric 480 x 303 Jeremy Fish skate shoe is absolutely packed with stylish details to take the shoe to the next level.

From the premium leather upper with de-bossed art accents and furry suede detailing, right down to the custom Jeremy Fish New Balance x 303 insole artwork and 303/SPB lace locks, everything about this shoe just screams quality and you can tell a whole lot of love's gone into it.

As an added bonus for all the collectors, the New Balance Numeric 480 x 303 also comes in its own special box and shoe bag, both of which feature custom Jeremy Fish artwork, and if that's not enough it even comes with a signature Jeremy Fish New Balance 480 keychain.

Of course, despite all of these one-of-a-kind features it's still the same New Balance Numeric 480 that we all know and love underneath, complete with all the usual tech for comfort and performance just in case you can't resist the urge to skate them. Beneath all the added drip, the Jeremy Fish New Balance Numeric 480 features a full-length FuelCell midsole backed up by a removable Abzorb insole for maximum comfort and impact protection, as well as an NDurance rubber outsole for long-lasting grip and durability. The sneakerheads might hate you for it but skating in these is a serious flex.
