The 288 is an indoor-soccer inspired shoe that's been updated with the kind of burly tech you require in a skate shoe. To start off, New Balance added a seamless one piece toe to reduce stress points and increase durability. Then to improve on impact performance they added a cushy closed cell polyurethane insole. To cap it all off New Balance threw in a crated heel to provide both comfort and support by cupping your heel, something you'll appreciate when you bail on that 7-set. The end result is a serious skate shoe wrapped in a low profile, casual package.

  • Cupsole
Primary Upper Materials
  • Suede
  • Polyurethane Insole
  • Lace Closure with Recessed Eyelets Extends Life of Laces
  • Breathable Mesh Lined Interior
  • Hidden Interior Gussets for Snug Fit
  • Crating in the Heel for Optimal Impact Protection

Cupsole - Durable and shock-absorbing to provide the best impact protection against hard landings. Cupsoles generally last longer than a vulcanized sole but don't provide as much flexibility and board feel right out of the box.


Polyurethane Insole - Closed cell polyurethane insert absorbs impacts and provides a consistent fit.

New Balance 288 Skate Shoes - black/gum
I tried NB shoes before. They ran narrow, the 288’s run true to size. Great looking shoe, only complaint is collar at ankle shredded after 1st session. Partly poor shoe design, partly the mechanics of my front foot drag for Ollies and such.
