New Balance brought it back to 1983 with these Numeric 480 Skate Shoes. They were first used on the basketball court, but now they have been introduced into skateboarding. The FuelCell midsole provides impact absorption and dynamic cushioning, and the Ndurance® rubber outsole delivers lasting durability on and off the board.

  • Double-Layered Toe Cap.
  • Reinforced Eyerow is Tacked Down Through the Vamp for a Secure Fit.
  • Polyurethane Insole
  • FuelCell Midsole
  • Ndurance® Rubber Outsole



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

FuelCell Midsole - This patented cushioning provides dynamic cushioning with excellent compression for impact absorption, and plenty of rebound for protection retention.

Ndurance® Rubber Outsole - Ndurance® is a highly durable rubber compound that increases the lifespan of this shoe's outsole.

New Balance Numeric 480 Skate Shoes - black/grey/black
On my 4th pair of 480’s now, this model is a bit stiffer underfoot then previous models that have a gum sole but after break in they feel great, remember to dab superglue along the stitching and they’ll last a while

New Balance Numeric 480 Skate Shoes
I wear a 9US and they fit like a 10US. I have the numerics and basic NB 480s. I can only wear an 8! I'm fine buying 8.5US street shoes, but skates are consistently a 9. This one plays the dischordant note, as they say. I will remove a star for the inconvenience NB caused me, but not for the merit of the shoe itself. I like 480 fine. Just order a full size down...
