@brendenpeirce both in the 80's, although people only skated Jordans, like you said, late 80's early 90's
First pair of shoes I ever skated were New Balance
The Jordan flipsyde was a skate shoe @alex_skates_nyc @photo_mattk
And the flipsyde was hideous.
Yeah thats what I figured, both came out around the mid 80s. @photo_mattk
@qualjuan knows whatsup, new balance got no business in skateboarding
Just give it a chance guys you never know
@sklaypex qe tu cress?
Fuck new balance. Ill give my money to a skater owned company any day
Are you still on Adidas
@lifeontheskaterside who owns nike sb?
"The only thing in this world that is constant is change." Congrats @newbalancenumeric on progressing. A-fucking-plus, @pjladd.
@flowwax ahahaha, who owns nike sb? Idk man, maybe NIKE.
@freenickcannon well he said he wouldn't by a shoe from a company thats not owned by a skater, but i bet hes bought nike and idk any skater who owns nike
New balance? Wow that's fuckin as lame as lil Wayne sayin he's a skateboarder
@flowwax actually ive never owned a pair of nikes. I usually only buy emericas and when es was in business
Imma pretend I didn't see this
Why are all you guys hatin so much? I think it's sick he left Adidas to help New Balance get noticed in the skate industry an who better to help than @pjladd come on guys give it a chance
@billar415 yeah...a shoe company that makes shoes ...that's so lame. Wtf were they thinking making shoes!?
@kitunes a shoe company that shouldn't have their noses in the skateboarding industry
@billar415 yeah...you're right. That's dumb. Skateboarding is an extremely exclusive activity, and without a secret knock, core attitude, or edgy approach, you just can't get in. Fyi, New Balance makes some of the BEST shoes for your feet. Ask any foot doctor. So if they wanna bring their technology into skateboarding and prolong mine or anyone else's skating.. so be it. Leave making skateboards to skateboarders. But hey, I've only been skating for almost 20 years...what do I know?
@kitunes exactly.. What do u know? Nothing it seems
@billar415 have fun believing everything you wear or ride is by "core" skateboarders.. living in denial is easy. Learning facts is kinda hard..
@kitunes ur still commenting back to me? Fuck off loser
@billar415 I'm waiting for myself to finish taking a shit.. so I had time.. I'll go back to being a loser.. have fun I guess...uh.. winning? #newbalance
Skate shoes r skate shoes new balance is in it now get over it try thembefore u hate I was the same way wen I was like Nike sb now all I wear is Nike sb sure I'm still loyal to vans but I'm gonna try y not pj Ladd is g so y dose it matter
The style is like prod 6 and Etnies Marana a good technical skate shoe take talent and an even better one takes skill
Yeah Nike Sb has some good shoes but their quality has declined so much compared to what it was and they have so much money they bought out every skater leaving other brands struggling to compete with paychecks
But I kinda like these new balances
Should go back to the old days and support companies that have been in the game since day one.
Hes a pro...he know what he doin.go pj ladd
@rioamarille he rides nb cause he havent got sponsos of shoes if nb tell u u wanna 5 pairs for a week?
What would happenwd
They look sick
Skateboarding is a hugely profitable market. It's only a matter of time before companies get more involved in it and a company like New Balance is probably going to be very successful in the industry. Look at Nike, it wasn't too long ago they ran an advert saying "Nike was only for real athletes" and a massive Nike shoe crushed a skater. Now they're probably the most popular skate shoe brand on earth. You have companies like Vans who have this image as the OG skate shoe but trust me, as a shop, they're not into supporting the core indy shops at all...rather the big fashion stores that don't have a skate tool between them. I say good luck @newbancenumeric and I'd say they'd be worth a go.
Oh and @pjladd good luck to you sir
I kinda actually wanna get a pair
Hey im sure your gettin heat over this. But hey man you gotta eat and i think new balance is a way sicker company than nike and adidas and prolly most real skate shoe companies. They are made 100% in the USA. Creating jobs for americans. Even skate shoe companies have lil asian babies make theirs over in china for a penny a day. Although i think nike, adida, and new balance shouldnt be in the skate scene. I honestly might buy some of these just to keep american jobs in America!
Looking good 👍
@alex_skates_nyc skechers lmao
This almost seems like a joke, why the sudden interest,
Thx for deleting all the comments saying that they are lame :)
noooooooo you should have never left DC
@evan_seven_ yea them new balances look gay af
I think they look dope as shit. I'm hyped on this.
US made skate shoes. For it!
I'm probably never gonna be able I get used to new balance making skate shoes, regardless f how sick these look
Congrats on gettin another sponsor but I hope they are payin u a shit ton cos that shits wack
Yea. Sick. Delete all the negative comments.
Looking good pj 👍

Pj one of my favourite skaters my hero then become a sell out piece of shit people like him let big company's into skateboarding and just killing the idea off it go die you shit of shit sell out you don't belong in skateboarding no more
