New Balance Numeric brings you the 913, Brandon Westgate's first pro model shoe for the brand. Designed by Westgate himself, the shoe is made to withstand the harsh demands of street skating. The reinforced one-piece toe lets the shoe wear evenly and the custom rubber eyestay keeps your laces tucked and protected so you wont tear through them constantly. The NDurance outsole gives the shoe excellent traction and durability, without being too thick and stiff. Inside the shoe is a polyurethane insole on top of the REVlite™ midsole, along with New Balance's N2 cushioning in the heel. These shoes are ready to go big.

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.
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.
N2® Cushioning - A low-to-ground cushioning technology that uses less material underfoot while delivering impact absorption equal to or better than shoes with traditional midsole heights. The result is improved board feel without sacrificing protection.
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.
REVlite EVA Midsole - REVlite is an innovative foam compound providing the responsiveness and durability of foams that are 30% heavier. REVlite offers a lightweight ride without minimizing construction or sacrificing underfoot cushioning or stability.
Pros: no ripped laces, killer silhouette, when broken in there’s no other shoe like it...fits like a glove, comfy, perfect. No seems that rip fray or fold. Grippy and flicks well. Shoe doesn’t blow out at all almost.
Cons: $100 Is steep for the lifeSpan of this shoe. Suede doesn’t last long on the flick spot, rubber sole wears fairly quick (I was surprised how fast) so even if you shoe goo the Ollie hole the loss of rubber on the sole will pretty much cash it out.
