An update to the 344, the 345 offers the same clean, low-profile design while adding improved fit and board feel. The 345's low-profile, vulc construction puts you close to your board, while an ABZORB+ insert provides impact protection for sending it down big sets. A reinforced toe provides superior flick and durability, plus the one-piece construction means less seems to rip! New Balance up's their game again with this new and improved skate shoe.
“Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. The sole consists of several layers of rubber, glued together then attached to the upper with rubber foxing tape. Vulcanized soles don’t provide as much foot protection or support as cupsoles, but they are preferred if you’re looking for good board feel in a shoe with less weight and bulk.
