Margielyn Didal x New Balance Numeric's 272 Sneaker Is Inspired by a Filipino Snack

The 22-year-old skateboarder celebrates her Cebuano roots.

Filipino Olympian skater Margielyn Didal has teamed up with New Balance Numeric once again to rework one of the brand’s skate shoes. A classic NB style, the 272 has been given a cultural makeover dedicated to Didal’s Cebuano roots.

The silhouette’s design is inspired by a classic Filipino snack called “puso,” which is a woven pouch made of coconut leaves packed with rice. The upper is crafted from black suede and mesh material, giving it a sleek look while providing a comfortable fit. The lateral boasts a gray checkered pattern that mimics the snack’s exterior after being weaved. Rounding off the footwear style are the insoles printed with “puso” and co-branding.

Watch Didal and her mom make puso from scratch below. Priced at $79.99 USD, Margielyn Didal x New Balance Numeric’s 272 “Puso” is now available on the New Balance website.
