They've got a good team and put out some quality edits, but I swear I've never seen anyone wearing their shoes who didn't get them for free. Worst of the non-endemic shoe brands. All I see is senior citizen shoes.

I just got my first corpo shoes ever. Some Adidas mathcourt and some Jordan Taylor's NB. They're really good shoes. They're well made and really comfortable.

Knox's eye for spots and lines is sublime. He skates things most people wouldn't even give a second look.

I've been skating the 440 off and on over the last month or so. I used to skate the shit out of the Logan 637 so it was a logical progression.

Skatewise, I'm on my second pair of corpo shoes ever right now (or soon to be) - a pair of Nike Check Solarsofts. The first was a pair of Converse years ago that blew out/got too soft right away. These Nikes are comfortable, but I have to double tongue em' to keep my foot from slipping out when I push. We'll see how they are when I actually skate them with my next deck.

Honestly NB# makes some solid fucking shoes. I've skated probably a half dozen pair and they're my gold star standard shoe. Are these just his colorway of the 440 or is it his shoe now, like how P.J. Ladd has the 533?

Tom Knox is my favourite contemporary skater. Part of what makes him great is the spot selection- things that are  unique and hard to skate that he handles effortlessly.

What's more, I prefer New Balance shoes and will keep buying them if they keep making them. Though, they let themselves down with the sizing debacle, and I think they have a tendency to make some very tame colour choices.

The 440 is a great shoe and would advise anyone to try it if they're looking to try something different.

That song worked fuckin mad, despite initially coming across as unusual for a skate clip the emotional depth had a great effect on the skating, i call trend.

What sizing debacle?

For a long time, NB# themselves recommended sizing a half size up from your normal fit. Now they are claiming that is not the case but some of us who wear them still size up and are getting normal fits. They sized weird.

Jakeumms hit the nail on the head.

I'm snug in a UK 9 normally and was tending to seek out a UK 9.5 (in the 255, 358 and 533v1), but the 440 is relatively long, therefore I would go for a 9 in the future.

I think the UK sizes are a half size smaller than the US on the NB size guide, so a US 12 in the nb440 would fit you snuggly.
