New Balance Vulcs
New Balance Jamie Foy 306 Skate Shoe
One of New Balance's most popular skate shoes, the Jamie Foy 306, is back with two clean and simple colourways. The drop features both a stylish White / Navy and Black / White variant for a highly versatile shoe that's perfect for any occasion. With their signature vulcanised construction, the Jamie Foy 306 is a street skaters dream which offers greater impact protection than a lot of other vulc shoes.
As always the New Balance Jamie Foy 306 features all the premium tech you expect from the shoe, including their Abzorb insole and N-Durance rubber outsole for maximum impact protection and outsole durability. The elastic gusseted tongue guarantees a snug fit and prevents that dreaded wonky tongue, while the suede upper provides ultimate durability and flick with the additional mesh panels adding much needed breathability for your sweaty hooves. There's a reason that these are some of the most popular vulcs on the market: they look good, feel good, and make you skate good.
New Balance 212 Skate Shoe
Another popular vulc skate shoe, the New Balance 212 features a stripped back, tennis inspired construction that prioritises boardfeel and durability above all else. The drop features two distinctive variants so New Balance have got you covered no matter what your style is. The Black / Rust Oxide colourway features an all black canvas upper and sole with black suede ollie and toe patches, with the addition of an orange 'N' and orange highlights for a nice bit of contrast. Boasting the breathability of canvas with the durability of suede in high-wear areas, the New Balance 212 combines the best of both worlds for a no frills shoe that packs a serious punch.
Meanwhile the White / Black colourway features a white leather-coated suede upper, as well as ollie and toe patches, with a gum sole and black 'N' logo for a vibrant, summery shoes. The leather-coated suede of the upper provides all the benefits of leather - like top-tier durability and flick - while being further reinforced by the underlying suede so you don't have to worry about tearing through this shoe any time soon.
New Balance Cupsoles
New Balance Westgate 508 Skate Shoe
Carrying on with the sleek colourways, Brandon Westgate's pro model shoe, the 508, is back in an extremely tasteful black and white variant. The new 508 features an all-black suede upper with a white sole and a nice bit of white detailing around the 'N' which stretches around the back of the shoe. This popular cupsole shoe is specially designed to withstand the superhuman skating of Brandon Westgate, so you know it's built to deal with serious impact.
The Westgate 508 features a classic cupsole construction that's thickest at the heel to help provide maximum cushioning and impact protection before thinning out towards the toe to maintain that much-needed boardfeel. On top of this, the shoe features a padded mesh tongue and a perforated upper for ultimate breathability, as well as a dual toe box to provide extra durability where its needed most. It may look simple, but the Westgate 508 is built to last.
New Balance 440 Skate Shoe
Consistently one of our best selling shoes, the New Balance 440 is the perfect choice if you're looking for something that's more supportive than a vulc while still offering premium boardfeel. The 440 is super quick to break in and packs some serious durability thanks to the extra protection of the leather toe cap which is further backed up by suede underlays. To top it off, the upper also features mesh side-panels and perforated areas for added breathability that's much needed in this insane weather.
The latest colourway of the New Balance 440 is easily one of the most unique from the collection. Featuring a white leather-coated suede upper and blue highlights, the standout feature of the shoe has got to be the translucent sole which gives the shoe a proper techy, futuristic aesthetic that you don't see every day. Don't worry about it compromising durability though, the sole still features New Balance's signature NDurance rubber compound for maximum outsole durability.
New Balance Tiago Lemos 1010 Skate Shoe
Another returning classic, the New Balance Tiago 1010 is back and better than ever with a hella fresh new colourway for all the tennis enjoyers.
