Are they still the most insanely stiff shoes in the game? I want to support, but every pair I've had have been stupid stiff, never broke in.

my experience with them is the polar opposite, literally every model I've tried so far I've been able to skate in straight out of the box. which models have you been trying? just being curious

Dude you’re blowing it so hard.  Just put super glue where that hole in the sole starts.  What kind of retard doesn’t know this?  You probably just skate on tony hawk 2 on dreamcast

Never heard of it.

Also curious which ones were stiff, i've skated about 5 pairs so far and they break in quick, i usually just twist them a bunch before putting them on, crack em like a glow stick.

Would back State a lot harder if it weren't so hard to get a set in Australia

Theyre a new-ish company, im sure they just need a bit to find a distro out here

Edit: Looks like they have some deal with Street Machine

Best shoes I've skated in years for sure.

Now I need to try and find them in Europe. Anyone know of any distro's in Holland/Belgium/Germany doing them?

Literally all I've been doing is singing their praises every time someone asks me what shoes I'm wearing.

So worth supporting.

their current distro for all of Europe I believe is Shiner Dist, but as soon as next year State is supposed to start working with one independent distro for each individual country in Europe, should make it a lot easier to find the shoes hopefully!

If anyone can point me in the right direction as to how to get a hold of these in Australia without having to ship internationally, it would be greatly appreciated, shit even an email contact to a distro in US so I can get the ball rolling over here!

I'm really enjoying my State Hudsons, was going to ditch them once I picked up a couple of pairs of DC Smith mids on sale but ended up really liking them (and for $17 they were a steal!).

I wear 10-10.5 in hufs and haven't really tried any other shoes for fear of fit. I picked up the elgins and they were just not happening. Do they typically fit true to size? They kind of reminded me how the eS edgar shoes were

The Elgins are probably the narrowest and shallowest shoes I have. If they were a tad bit roomier and the sole wasn't such a pebble magnet, I'd love them. Really nice looking shoes IMO.

Across all shoes, during and after each session I'm doing thing (thankfully I'm usually in a park), fastest was is to rub find something flat with a hard edge and slide it up and down the tread. Tedious AF.

I have one pair(the half cab knock) and they were very stiff at first but overall a good shoe.

There is a pair of Navy canvas Harlems coming out at the end of the summer that look nice. I still have yet to try State but I am always tempted.

Thanks for the heads up! Hopefully more shops will be carrying them soon!

I wear a perfect size 9 in all of these. If the sizing ratios between those brands are anything proportional, I'd say get 11.5 States. This thread is full of people with different sized feet saying States fit true to size, so you should be good (unless somebody with 11.5 size feet chimes in and specifically debunks this, somehow).

Has anyone paid full price for these things? I had a pair of keys that I hated because every step made a squeak. I had a pair of canvas somethings that I puked on and had to throw away. Think between those 2 pairs I was out $30.

i wear a 10.5 in vans and i got the keys in 10.5. I am considering trying a 10 next time i get them just because of how much they broke in.
