From One Skateboarding Legend to Another: Poets x New Balance Tiago Lemos 1010

Gino Ianucci pays homage to Tiago Lemos.


[Update 17 May 2023] Following its initial release via Poets, more images of the Poets x New Balance Tiago Lemos 1010 have now surfaced. Take a look at them below as we await wider releases to follow in the coming days.


Poets was founded by Gino Iannuci in 2002, inspired by the Long Island community of Poet’s Corner where he grew up, each street bearing the name of a renowned poet from the 19th century. A legend in his own right, he pays homage to ’90s legend Tiago Lemos by taking on the New Balance Tiago Lemos 1010, as did Tony Ferguson’s Rone did recently.

The titular pair feature a White mesh and leather construct, with overlays made of Sail hairy suede on the mudguards, mid panel, and heel counter. Other notable features include identical “N” emblems on the profiles and black piping on the toe box, heel, and sockliner. Poets logo adorn the heels and insoles, while supported by a Sail Fuel Cell midsole, and a Black rubber outsole.

Find the pair on Poets’ webstore on 15 May with a wider release on 19 May at select retailers and NewBalance.com. A price point hasn’t been disclosed yet but should it surface before the 15th, expect to find an update here.
