After the worldwide success of the New Balance Tiago Lemos 1010, New Balance have treated Tiago to his second pro shoe for the brand: the New Balance Tiago 808. As with the 1010, the New Balance 808 is loaded with features to keep your pigs feeling pampered. From their dual-density FuelCell midsole to the internal heel pods to keep your feet locked in, the Tiago 808 has got more tech than the whole Primitive team put together.

Unlike the New Balance Tiago 1010 - which was rushed out by New Balance when Tiago joined the team - the Tiago 808 has design elements chosen by Tiago himself, hence the strong late-90s aesthetic. The big man's added some of his own flair with the jagged line of the toe cap and exaggerated 'N' logo, instantly making the 808 one of New Balance's most distinctive skate shoes.

Built with impact protection and durability in mind, the New Balance Tiago 808 is guaranteed to help you keep skating for longer. The shoe features a cupsole construction with several layers of protection for your feet, including the FuelCell midsole, Abzorb midsole and molded Ortholite insole for maximum comfort, as well as the NDurance rubber outsole for long-lasting durability and grip.

It's not just the sole that's loaded with tech mind, the upper of the Tiago 808 is equally prepared to handle whatever the streets have to throw at it. The 808 features a synthetic upper with mesh panels for breathability as well as a reinforced, triple-stitched, suede toe box for maximum durability in high-wear areas. Even the laces have been blessed with a load of features to protect against wear, including both internal and external plastic-coated ghillies to prevent laces snapping. They really have thought of everything.
