I always thought SB should do real simple colour ways for skateshops. Black white/ black gum/ navy/ burgundy etc real clean combinations basically and keep that regular with all there core styles. Then if they want to do bullshit colourways like the above put those in malls and chain stores so idiots with no taste can buy them.
Just reading or hearing the words Nick and Tucker together sends me into a terrible, velvet rage.

There are a ton of Nike SB Blazers on this site, some sold out and some not.  Has anyone ever ordered from them before?

I worked in a skater owned shop for 6 years and maybe when I started out that shit was true but nowadays in Europe no one seems to care the same way about them like they used too. I honestly think shoppers would prefer the basic colourways and shop owners would make more money consistently. Rather than a little injection of sales that ultimately doesn't make a dent on outgoings half the time.

yeah i always though the Gato's were cool just something I wouldn't actually wear but that colorway is sooo clean, I might snag those up eventually. I kinda like those grey/black ones too

I tried out some BAs and they felt pretty great. Is it dumb that I don't want to buy them because they look like Seinfeld shoes?

I'd much rather look down and see the Gatos or something.


Do the Gatos have less padding than a Dunk (my bare minimum)? What about the P. Rod 7?

Ive tried on my friends & id say the Gato's have just a tad more cushion that dunks (at least if only in the heel) because of the lunarlon midsole. P.Rod 7's have a little bit more lunarlon cushioning in the back/midfoot area but the forefoot is about the same as the other two so boardfeel is still solid. Id say if anything the Gato's just have that "pointy shoe" feel kinda like the busenitz but in a Nike shoe. Its not really a "jump down el toro" type of shoe but there's plenty cushioning for people who do more tech shit and if you DO decide to jump down something, you should be alright unless its huge. Personally, I've already skated thru about 5 pairs of the PRods and have more in rotation at the moment, so obviously ima back those as well, but if you're digging the gatos then you probably won't be disappointed with how they skate

one, yes its dumb cause the BAs are great!
two. the gatos are fine too. just started skating a pair. not as padded as the BA, and less breathable.
my feet didn't hunt after a 3 or 4 hour sesh. and thats pretty much my marker for comfort.
though i don't think i'd buy another pair of gato's. i think the BAs are better. and the same price. soo.

Gatos took me quite a while to break in and after a couple weeks I figured I wouldn't want another pair. A few months in I definitely want another pair.

i'm on my second pair of Gato's and I'll be getting a third.

There's less padding in them than a pair of dunks, and they aren't the most supportive shoes.  all that being said, they last very long, are thin but the lunarlon packs a hell of a punch.  i've jumped down some big shit in the last few months and had no problems, when my usual pair of blazers/half cabs would have murdered my feet.  they are fucking fantastic, and you can't get a cooler looking shoe.  get a pair of black levis, a camo t shirt and you get to feel like daniel shimizu in that's life.

I wore an 8.5 in a Blazer

And now I wear a 9 in a Gato.  8.5 in a Gato was too snug.
