CEBU, Philippines —  Cebu’s pride Margielyn Arda Didal made another history after becoming the first female skateboarder in the world to have a signature shoes with New Balance.

Her colorway shoes were officially launched recently but without any fanfare due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“This is the first signature colorway with any of our skaters in Asia Pacific and the first female skater (Didal) for New Balance ever,” said Anthony Claravall, NB Numeric brand manager for Asia-Pacific .

Didal’s NB Numeric 379 colorway is inspired by the Philippine flag.

Emblazoned with “M.Didal 379”, it is part of the “Competition Pack” which also has a US flag-inspired Jamie Foy 306 colorway.

Up for global release, the shoes will be available soon in Cebu at the Strap Flagship store.
