The New Balance PJ Stratford 533 skate shoes were originally team editions, but became solely associated with Ladd after he contributed to their redesign. This best-selling style has been updated with a highly durable N-Durance outsole and molded EVA footbed for shock absorption.
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.
Laser Perforation - Adds breathability to the shoe so your feet feel better when you're working up a sweat.
Mesh Tongue - Allows for greater breathability which means your feet feel better while you're shredding that 'crete.
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.
TPU Bonded Suede - An upper made of this material adds durability and effectively extends the life of your shoes.
Injection Molded EVA Insole - Offers a consistent fit with superior cushioning and reduced weight.
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 30% heavier. REVlite offers a lightweight ride without minimizing construction or sacrificing underfoot cushioning or stability.
