The look of the 440 harkens back to New Balance's heritage of classic, 70's style running shoes. Its C-Cap EVA heel wedge helps to absorb impact without weighing you down, and thanks to its low profile construction, you won't have to compromise on boardfeel. The upper is constructed with dual layers in the high wear areas along with breathable mesh side panels to make the 440 not only comfortable, but extremely functional.

- Ndurance® Upper
- ABZORB+® Insert
- C-Cap® Midsole
Cupsole - Cupsoles are durable, well-cushioned and provide the best impact protection against hard landings. The sole consists of a single rubber layer, reinforced with glue then stitched to the upper. Cupsoles generally last longer than vulcanized soles, but don't provide as much flexibility and board feel right out of the box.
Multi-Layered Toe Cap - Multiple layers adds durability so you can skate your new shoes even longer.
Ndurance® Upper - Coated suede feels and skates like regular suede but is significantly more durable. This equates to 20% longer lifespan for your shoes.
ABZORB+® Insert - A New Balance custom insert with added protection in high-impact areas
C-Cap® Midsole - A compression-molded EVA for superior midsole cushioning and flexibility.
