New Balance Numeric bring to you the 379, an updated version of one of the team favorites, the 345. The 379 offers a clean aesthetic while delivering all of the performance features for today's street skaters. A one piece toe lets the shoe wear evenly, and the NDurance® outsole provides lasting grip and flexibility. Inside the shoe is a polyurethane insole and an ABZORB+® midsole for comfort and impact protection.
Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. The sole consists of several layers of rubber, glued together then attached to the upper with rubber foxing tape. Vulcanized soles don’t provide as much foot protection or support as cupsoles, but they are preferred if you’re looking for good board feel in a shoe with less weight and bulk.
Elastic Gusseted Tongue - This tongue feature helps create a snug fit, something you're going to want while skating.
Internal Toe Protection - Hidden from view but working hard to provide extra durability.
Laser Perforation - Adds breathability to the shoe so your feet feel better when you're working up a sweat.
One Piece Quarter Panel and Vamp - This construction method means no seam obstruction and removes the possibility of blowouts so you can skate these shoes even longer.
ABZORB+® Insert - A New Balance custom insert with added protection in high-impact areas
Polyurethane Insole - Closed cell polyurethane insert absorbs impacts and provides a consistent fit.
Ndurance® Rubber Outsole - Ndurance® is a highly durable rubber compound that increases the lifespan of this shoe's outsole.
Tapered Crating in Midsole - This adds both support and boardfeel to the shoe.
