Welcome to Two Thousand and Sixteen, in case you missed it we’ve been steadily building New Balance Numeric for a few years now. We’re extremely proud of our skaters, and everyone who has contributed to the brand in front of and behind the lens.
In these pages we would like to invite you to take a brief look back as we celebrate our short history through a few of our projects.
Hopefully you’re reading this in your local skate store. We would like to extend our sincerest thanks to all of the retailers that have been with us on this journey; they’re the heart of every local scene. Without their tireless contributions to the culture of skateboarding, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do. We invite you to do the same; go pay for that grip tape they let you off with that one time, thank them for all the free stickers, magazines, videos and stories; for the hours they let you sit in the store charging your phone, whiling away the injury days, the rainy days, and waiting for that one friend that is always late… and if you haven’t already, go try a pair of our shoes on and let us know what you think.
We’ve been making footwear for over 100 years and we’re going to continue to strive to make the best skate shoes we possibly can. We’re listening too, so don’t be shy, you’re the voice of skateboarding : mail us: firstname.lastname@example.org
