The 288 might be my new favorite shoe. Perfect right out of the box

Skated a pair of the none skate ones and really liked them. These look way more durable on the toebox

I have a pair of the black/white ones, only wore the around. Might try to skate in them soon. To give them a shot.

I know, I need to get on a wear test program with NB# because I NEED them but can't really justify buying more kicks at the moment :'(

How does the 868 fit compared to, say, a dunk?

Could never skate them, but that colorway is nice.

Any shoe in that color is nice.

Those 868s are so sexy. I still can't bring myself to spend that much on a pair of shoes though.

Do they cost like $110? Expensive for sure, but the sample pair I skated for around 2 monts months showed no signs of wear. Could have skated them longer but I switched up to try another NB# model.

Yeah they're 110$. If they last that long maybe I'll just have to sack up and buy a pair though.

I have a 533 and a 598 both in 9 and they fit well, but due to my anatomy the 533 feels slightly better than the 598, which is a bit more tight for my wide feet. But as said, the difference is not big enough for me to go for an extra medium size.

I got them on a good deal for 55? and gave them a shot. Been skating them for approx. 8 sessions or so and the ollie/flick area is already pretty worn.  The rest of the shoe looks pretty much like on the first day. I stopped skating them because of the strong difference in the width between the forefoot and the heel area. I somewhat lost boardfeel when ollieing and my switch tre flips.  Besides that flipping went really well, so I would conclude that it is a good shoe,  but not worth $110. And the breathability is next level.

I just splurged on a pair about a half hour ago. I really hope I disagree with you.
