Been skating these NB #868 for about 2 weeks or so.




Wow, those look awesome! Thanks for the pics. Really want a pair.

They're supposedly going to retail for $110??
Shopping at Zumiez.....

Look motherfuck, I just want to buy my "Purple Drank" shirt and get the fuck out so I can get home in time to steal some Virginia Slims from my mom before she gets home from work.

i love the look of these shoes and the team is tight. after watching tom knox's vase part, i instantly got me a pair of these black suede low ones when i was visiting family in the us. they were awesome but it sucked having to find out they're not available in belgium or the netherlands. 2017 it is then
I want to express my attraction to Morgan Smith. He is such a cutie! I'd love to kiss him, hold hands with him, and snuggle in bed with him. I'm being completely sincere about this.

Skated these 868 samples for about a month now, surpsied they haven't ripped from the amount of kickflips I do. Didn't rip the laces too.

They skated great and durable, still a lot of life left. But probably going to be done skating them, tired of skating and looking at the same shoe for a while.

Deciced to skate these NB# 598's! Toe cap looks good on the eye.

These are the second pair I skated, both samples. Both were durable. Liking those black/gum combo better.

These look so good.  How are they compared to the PJ 533?  More flexible?

I think they are for sure more flexible, maybe the rubber on the sole they use? I usually microwave the 533's to break them in. I didn't have to do with this model, straight to feet.

It felt great out the box!

Oh cool thanks!  How long do you nuke the 533?  I've never thought of that and always thought they broke in a little slow.

Longest I skated a pair is about a month and a half, that's long for me. Since I like to switch out shoes one I feel they are "done".

NB# is the one brand whose shoes I'll buy for full retail should I ever find them. I like all of the designs I see.

I'd say true to size.  I bought em 1/2 size up cause you have to on the PJs and they are a little big.  Always check the tactics site reviews before purchasing, had some good advice re: sizing on there.
