Primitive x New Balance Numeric 574 Collaboration is Ready to Thrash
Release: 27 November 2020

Paul Rodriguez‘s skate imprint Primitive is linking up with New Balance Numeric for another collaboration, this time giving the iconic 574 a skate-ready makeover.

The tan tones will suit the colder months up north, with the wheat-hued uppers constructed with thick suede overlays, and bolstered with a reinforced mesh base. Adding to the mix is golden yellow and black accents, which hit on the heels, as well as the branding on the midfoot signature N logo and tongue. Primitive print is seen on the mudguard – likely to fall victim to the abrasive griptape – with another callout featuring on the co-branded tongue badge.

As for the skate-ready upgrades, the aforementioned tongue receives a bulkier look with extra padding. Meanwhile, the sole unit is significantly more robust, with a hard black rubber shell construction around a soft black foam centre, while the outsole has a special traction pattern designed for enhanced control and boardfeel. Gold speckles are also a nice touch.

Check out the collaboration in action thanks to Primitive and New Balance team rider Tiago Lemos below.

While release details are unclear at this stage, all social media speculation points to the Primitive x New Balance Numeric 574 dropping on November 27.
