this was one of the sample pairs i got from that NB weartest program. along with those brown/gum brighton's on the previous page. looked awesome in the box and like shit on my foot. could have stepped in dog poop in them and it would have made no difference, they were like poop.

Looks like some synthetic type of material on it, like on the Logan models.

Not a fan of that materials, stiff as hell and never breaks in.

I absolutely love the way they look on my feet. My friends tend to tell me I like ugly things though.

that white/blue colorway was pretty neat actually, saw some kid skating them in SD all trashed and they looked kinda cool. these ones suck eggs tho.

This is the stiffest shoe I've ever worn in my life. The upper on the 344 is awful. The Artos broke in fine so I have no idea what Tate is bitching about.

Talking about the Arto 358 in that brown color and the materials they used, appears to be the same they used to use on the old Logan 637. Which felt super stiff when skating/wearing them.

Didn't say anything about suede upper material Arto shoes.

That's great. And I stick to my stance of "they break in just fine" you wiener.

Wasn't supposed to post photos of the shoe, so i'll post a pic of the tongue.

Been testing out the V.2 of the 533 for about a month now. Skates great, can't get into the details on the shoe, other than it has hidden shoe lacing system.

V.2 is way better than the first iteration. No idea of release date.

what a tease.  Can't wait for the V1s to all go on sale.

Laces actually last crazy long for me on the 533.  I lace em tight as footballs though so they sink in a bit.  Insanely durable shoe.

Oh this is exciting!  Way better?  Wow, maybe a bit more flexible?  I realize you can't share much, but maybe at least how it fits compared compared to the first?

Yup, more flexible. More support in the heel area also, compared to the first version.

Toe and sole pretty much remains the same, which is good. But the shoe adds more durability and support. Skated them for about and no blow out in laces, toe area...

The fit is a sample shoe in a 9.5. Between these and the first version, I was a 9 and 9.5. It really depended on the shoe material on it.

I had some leather/synthetic 533 in a size 9 and didn't fit well, I had some in suede and it fit and stretched better.

Fucking pumped for this!  I'm skating the 533s now and they're the best shoe I've skated in years.  Like said many times before, the only problem with them is how stiff they are in the longer-than-most break-in period, so more flexibility will make this shoe a 11/10.

Yes, especially the toe box area, the 533 model in the toe area felt like bricks when you first get them in.

But right out of the box, the v.2 is more flexible and supportive. The durability is there still. Finally got a hole in the toe after skating them for month and a half +.

Still skating them now, might put them to rest soon and go try out a 598 again.

Please keep me updated on how the 598s are if you skate 'em. I haven't seen a pair in person yet so curious how they compare to the 533s.

The two 568 I have skated were samples, and they have held up great when I skated them. With the materials used and construction on it. Flexible right out the box.

I have one pair currently, the gray/gum one. I will skate the retail one next pretty sure.

Skating these for the next session, first retail 598 I have skated. The past 3 were samples and surprisingly held up well. Hope these hold up the same.
