Style of the New Balance Numeric 379

In and out the skate park, the NM379 looks splendid with its polished silhouette decked in muted colors, befitting the New Balance’s simple, quiet personality. That said, casual and laid-back clothing goes perfect with this kind of kick. It looks at home with staples such as denims, pants, khakis, chinos, pants, tees, flannel, hoodie, etc.

Notable Features

The NM379’s bare design is misleading. This sneaker is not a simple as it looks. Hidden from sight are a few components that make this model stand out and endure harsh skating.

New Balance Numeric 379 Insole

It has an elastic band under a laser-perforated tongue and internally reinforced toe area. Also inside is a PU (polyurethane) insole that absorbs impact and doesn’t pack out throughout the shoe’s lifespan.   New Balance Numeric 379 Laces

History of the New Balance Numeric 379

In 2013, the century-old New Balance launched their skate-focused Numeric range, the brand’s entry into the skate industry. While taking inspiration from their classic running models, New Balance treated the skate shoes with the same level of craftiness as they did their athletic footwear.

That resulted in the New Balance becoming a powerhouse in producing performance skate shoes. New Balance stuck to their hundred-year-old minimalist roots, always stripping the sneakers down to the essentials, which became the brand’s unmistakable trademark.

That much is seen in the Numeric range, especially in one of its newest additions, the Numeric 379, which looks ready to shred in the streets and parks.
