NB# X Welcome 440
Inspiration for the Welcome 440 colourway choice comes from Louis Le Prince, the first person to one of the ultimate lifestyle NBD hammer of recording moving images on Leeds Bridge in 1888. Obviously the moving image in arguably on of the most important aspects of skateboarding progression, apart from the act of skating itself. Just think about how many videos we see daily on Instagram, and before that DVDs and VHS's. 'Without the footage it's fiction' so the old saying goes.

The colour choices on the Welcome 440 shoes come from the Leeds Bridge itself where Louis Le Prince first recorded his images. The off white upper is taken from the York Stone, where as the blues come from metal on bridge. With the tricolour taping on the tongue being representative of Louis Le Prince's home country of France. The shoes also feature a removable insole with a printed picture of the Leeds Bridge.
