Yeah, I believe the Non-black box soles has "REV LITE". The older (Black Box) ones don't. Maybe was for like 2-3 seasons they had soles like that?

Thanks Heritage and Tate!
Are these from the new factory?
Any feedback on the logan S 636?




Found these for cheap, thinking about getting them

They are definitely from the new factory, the Logan 636 was actually a brand new model after the transition. I had two pair (pic below), and liked them. Personally I think they are a little wider cut than the Stratford, Brighton and Logan 637.

One other thing...on that particular color you posted, don't let anyone tell you that is mesh on the toe because it is not. I have seen someone say that here before and it's just not true. It's a ballistic nylon and you won't rip through it.

Damn that was a fast answer! What about the sizing, I'm 9 on everything except for superstar adv that are 8.5. Should I get uk8.5/us9 ?

I ordered some of flatspot in the beggining of this year when they were on sale too. Came out they were my wrong size, such a bummer. Keep in mind that their UK size is only a half size down than the US one. Their 8,5uk is a 9us 42,5eu 27cm. I ordered a 8uk like i usually do i'm nike, etc and i got it wrong.

it still baffles me that they aren`t really available on the european continent (yeah, not counting you great britain, go on with your brexit.)

we tried to get them at our shop, got told that they arent planning anything before fall 2017. major bummer.

Let me know what zone you're in and I'll let you know when we open that area up.  We have some shoes arriving for Fall 2016 into parts of Europe so hopefully you're in that area.

I know that we launch Germany and France for this coming Fall 2016 season, but I don't know off the top of my head about Austria being included in that.  Let me check!

New Balance "Epic TR". I would get those shoes in a blink of an eye if they werent some limited editions and expensive as fuck. Rothdigga, talk with your superiors to put this shoe in the skate line up at a more affordable price!! They would be huge it!

Wow, those are awesome looking!!! Soccer inspired??

Yeah, those would sell like crazy if they were in the skate line. Take some sales away from Adidas.

No idea when they release but they've been skating great, the past 2 weeks or so I have been skating them.

Will snag some pics of them, no rips or tears in the toe area and I do a lot of kickflips.
