New Balance Numeric 272 Shoes in Black and White. An all-new silhouette for 2021, the New Balance Numeric 272 is a fully vulcanised skate shoe styled with a reinforced one piece toe and a streamlined suede and mesh upper for additional lightweight resilience. Providing increased impact protection and a lighter sense of day on day wear, this low collared sneaker features a vaulted heel, abrasion resistant rubber overlays and a performative rubber outsole that’s styled with a traction orientated underfoot tread for heightened all terrain traction. Textile quarters complement the fabric ‘NB# 272’ branded tongue, beneath the classic 6 eyelet lacing system, whilst the crisp white ‘N’ logo decals across each midfoot are a testament to tradition. Perforations across the toe box are mirrored by a breathable interior lining for increased ventilation, with the OrthoLite insole paired with reflective panels across the branded heel and tongue tab for a boosted after-dark wear.
