Released as part of New Balance Numeric‘s Spring 2014 collection, the skate division of NB presents the Logan 637. Inspired by the lines of the classic 574 silhouette — but with a solid upper that utilizes TPU coating for extra strength — the sneaker plays into current trends in the skate shoe market (lightweight and techy) but pulled it off nicely. Three initial colorways are offered, with the darkest version the one that draws the most water, although it’s hard to look past the gum sole on that white and tan joint. RevLite technology and foam soles are incorporated for a more comfortable ride, and we’d like to see how they perform on the board. More info here.
