In what has become a yearly tradition, Franky Villani and New Balance Numeric have teamed up to release a Halloween themed, limited edition, version of Franky's favourite New Balance shoe, the NM213.
The New Balance Numeric 213 makes use of a classic skate silhouette with added New Balance heritage design inspiration. The result is a shoe with superior durability, thanks to suede and canvas uppers with a vulcanised sole, whilst the higher cut collar provides often needed ankle protection.
For 2020 Franky has re-designed the 213 skate shoe with a burgundy upper made from corduroy material, offset against a black outsole with burgundy accents, and a purple sole. The tongue features 'Villani' embroidered in suitably spooky font, whilst further customisation is found on the insoles which match the purple of the sole and feature an inquisitive vampire, illustrated by Franky.
To coincide with All Hallows' Eve, Franky has been hard at work on a brand new part for New Balance, one that you're presumably watching above. Applying his undeniable natural talent to a variety of Californian concrete.
