Hope this is available beyond the Asia market.

I swore I'd snag a pair of skateable 574's if they ever came out, even before Numeric was a "thing".

If you mean that you're looking for them in the US...yes, I bought stock of those to sell to shops here in the US.  Too good of a colorway to pass up...I used to wear that colorway religiously when I rode for Airwalk.

Thanks Roth,

Only reason I assumed that it could possibly be the Asia market only is the Hong Kong location of the shop.

Hope Furnace or LB Skate gets a few pairs.

Digging the color way, but I'm more excited about those Navy 420's at the 2:06 mark.

Roth when are we going to see that color way drop?

Those are an early version of the Royal 420 that we have coming for Spring 2019.  I think the final version has a filled in white N on it, and a white heel tab on the back, but it's the same shoe.  So...a Jan 1 2019 delivery.

Convince them to keep the N colored in like it is in the vid. Well to be honest either way I'm picking it up, both sound nice and clean.

Thanks for the update Roth.

Would I size a 345 like a 440/212 or 1/2 up like a 533/598?

I go with my regular shoe size for 345 and half size up for 598. I can skate 598 in my regular size, but it's a slightly painful break in.

RIP 598 :'(

Seriously though, it was one of their best looking and performing shoes they just fucked up on the sizing.

Ok guys, which Numeric's do I go with?
I've been scrolling through online shops for months looking at NB's and have yet to pull the trigger.
Bought a pair of 505's a while back, but they were too small and now I'm too scared to buy them.

I skate anything from Vans authentics to Nike Dunks so I've been contemplating the new 440's, or do I go basic vulc with the 345, 254, or 212? Is sizing still an issue, or can I safely get my 9.5 Dunk sizing in everything?

There are still some sizing issues, but not nearly as bad as before. Most of the newer stuff being released is pretty much TTS.

I'm currently rocking the 420 in my normal dunk size, and I know the same size would be good for the 288. With the 420, I could even go down a size for a snugger fit because of the material of the shoe.

But for things like the 346 (mid 345) I had to go a half size up, and same goes for the 598. Even then, if you got wide ass feet like I do, they were still pretty narrow and would cause me some pain if I tried to skate in them.

If you got a place locally where you can try them I would recommend doing that just to be sure.

I recommend checking out the 288, it has great board feel like a vulc, but the support of a cupsole if you want something in between. I'm really digging my 420's but it took me a good minute of breaking in to get used to the boardfeel. It gets a lot better once they break in.

I just got a pair of 440s, if I get them again I'll go a half size down from usual. I've been skating vans ultra range which run small, and these size 10 440s are a 1/4 inch longer than the size 10.5 vans.

one of the best cupsoles ive ever skated. sturdy and supportive all the way to the ground. pretty grippy compared for 533 and 598 right off the bat, the other two i felt like i had to break in alot. some people might find the lip of the sole too much for the first bit, but i liked it for flick and how it keeps the stitched toe from getting too much wear.
