Does anyone have a reference for how the staple fits? I go a half size down in the new owen vlk but I don't know how that fits compared to the rest of the lakai line-up, I wear a 9.5 in almost everything else, should that be fine for the staple? or should i size down? up? I have a wide forefoot, short-ish feet and a narrow heel for reference. Thanks

tts works for me, at least the same size as the other shoes i skate, which are generally blazer highs or koston 2s

Looking for the FTC Owens but they're all out in my size everywhere. Anyone try them? I believe they're cupsoles now, which is why I'm interested in them.

Bump this, especially any sizing info. In the "Shoes You're Currently Wearing Thread," someone mentioned purchasing them in my usual size while in here, people suggested ordering the original Owen half size down (I've been skating cupsole Emericas lately at 10.5). Since I'll probably have to order directly from FTC, I want to make sure I get it right the first time versus having to exchange and deal with shipping back and forth.

I just got a pair of the pink FTC Owens that my girl got me for my birthday. I wen a half size down on them and they fit perfect. I like the luxlite insole for being a stock insole. The heel lock is great and has a great shape to it. It's breaking in really nicely but I can't decide if I want to skate them or not. They're so fresh that I'm not sure I can bring myself to skate them. Might have to scoop a pair of the black or white ones to skate instead.

I have been eying the flaco, the Fremont, and the staple. Does anyone have any feedback on the Fremont. Yonnie was repping them hard on insta and singing their praises but all his old insta posts are gone.
Mike-Mo is going to be one of the best if not the best skater of his generation. Barring some kind of career ending injury or drug addiction.

Its been forever since I have gotten a pair of Lakais but I really used to love the Vincents.  How do the Rileys compare to them?  I really kind of like the look of the Rileys better and they are on sale a couple of places.

The Fremont took a few days to break in, and they're kind of wide. I've skated all 3 that you mentioned, and the staple was by far my favorite.

I bought them my normal size because I heard a bunch of a couple people said that they've been their same fit for a bunch of Lakais.  They feel fine now, but am worried they'll loosen too much once I actually start skating them.  But whatevs--I don't through myself down anything so won't be a big deal I think.
