New Balance’s skate-focused division, Numeric, is turning heads with its latest release, the Yin and Yang pack, introduced via the popular 480 silhouette. Notably, this is a model that has gained significant traction in both the skateboarding community and beyond. Recently, Andrew Reynolds added his unique touch to the 480, alongside releases like the Navy and Rust variations and the basketball-inspired Junya Watanabe’s BB480.
In the Yin and Yang Pack, the Yin version boasts an all-black leather design with subtle off-white accents, creating a bold and sophisticated look. The Yang edition features white leather with a contrasting black midsole, offering a clean aesthetic. Both pairs feature New Balance’s innovative full-length FuelCell technology, reducing weight and increasing responsiveness. They also sport double-layered toes for durability against grip tape and concrete wear, modified outsoles for improved traction and high-abrasion Ndurance rubber with molded Abzorb insoles for superior impact protection.
The New Balance Numeric 480 Yin and Yang Pack is available at select retailers and online.
In case you missed it, another Stüssy and Birkenstock collab is coming.
