The stratford 533 was easily the best shoe i had last year... to bad they're so damn expensive

Check eBay. I find them there regularly for around 60 bucks.

Fit on the Quincy?  Compared to say, a vans pro?

I'm not sure why this shoe never came out in mass numbers, imo one of the best looking skate shoes to ever come out ( looking, haven't skated it so I can't speak to performance )



Ah, the old bait & switch.  Order some expensive tech gadgets, get sent a maroon shoe instead.

Depends which color and models that were under black box, after black box, everything else has been better.

I do not, only NB# I have left is the pair I am skating now and a Burgundy 533.

Hope to get more models soon. I usually just give out my skated pairs after.

They are thin and flat but don't feel/look waxed in person but not like a normal lace either

Yes... They sent me one pair, a full size larger than what I listed my size as, and completely different than the shoes I normally skate. Gross colorway too. It sucks because I was actually looking forward to reviewing them, but its hard to skate a shoe that much too big. So I was over it. I am hoping they send me another pair to weartest, hopefully in my actual size this time. The quality of the shoe seemed great for the skating I did do in them.

How long did they take to get back at you after you applied?

they produce the 576 and the 670 in UK and prices starts at 125 - its quit a lot
but i would pay that for a shoe made in UK under fair conditions.

the weak point is the whole skate line isn't distributed in europe - only in UK.
Visited Slam City once the only shop in London who sell the Numeric line - and he
had just 1 pair in my size.

so nearly impossible to get that shoes if you are from the EU.
strange to me  - because NB is everywhere - they run Flagshipstores in Berlin,
but no Numeric.

THIS! Fuck, i want to be able to actually try their stuff. Adidas too, i only find a few selected models at adidas flagship stores, never seen a pair of Adidas Skate in a skateshop in PT.

good if you've got a wide foot, and the upper lasts an insanely long time. besides that they skate like most other vulcs

trying a pair of the 868 and I have to say the build quality looks really nice. haven't gotten to skate them yet since it just snowed here  :( but ill report back once i do

They look like a cupsole but are actually a vulc. Durability must be really good on em, aside from lace protection
