New Balance #272 Inspired by Olympic Skater Margie Didal’s Favorite Food
Margie used to sell “Puso”, steamed rice in a handmade casing made of woven coconut leaves, outside of the skatepark in Philippines where she grew up.
Now it’s the inspiration for her custom #272 Shoe from New Balance Numeric
11 Years Ago.
On July 16th we witnessed the Grand Opening of the Bethlehem Skateplaza after a decade of advocacy by our team. The Lehigh Valley’s first public concrete skateplaza free to enjoy by all on wheels.
Since then the skateplaza has served as an example to other communities that skateparks can be positive places for the youth & is partially why cities like Reading, Allentown, Quakertown & Forks have all invested in their own projects.
