Girls Skateboards rider and founder of Rone Footwear Tony Ferguson has teamed up with New Balance and fellow skater Tiago Lemos to release a refreshed version of the Numeric Tiago Lemos 1010.
The limited-edition sneaker is a part of the “Friends & Family” pair and arrives in a cool Arctic Blue leather. The majority of the base is painted in the pastel shade of blue, while it rests on suede inner heel pods and a crisp white dual-density FuelCel midsole, matching the New Balance side logo. A zipper tongue adds a level of excitement, whereas an engraved deubré boasts “Rone” branding. Each shoe comes with individual dust bags, keeping everything clean and pristine.
Ferguson shares, “I’ve been wearing New Balance forever, and Tiago is one of my favorite skaters, so this project is very special to me. Tiago’s raw talent, power and style is reminiscent of the ’90s but with next-level pop. You can tell that he’s inspired by and is paying homage to that era, while also pushing skating forward. This collaboration feels like a perfect encapsulation of the past, present and future.”
The limited edition “Friends & Family” Tiago Lemos 1010 x Rone will be released on July 28 at a retail price of $180 USD exclusively on Rone’s official site.
