Anti Hero usually has one.

The other DLX brands usually have one or two a season, Creature has got some good big boy shapes. I really like the Quasi 8.625 shape

Quasi sometimes has an 8.75, also transportationunit.bigcartel.com has one currently on sale. Give your money to Russ Pope

If you like that Jordan Sanchez deck I'd maybe wait for these to come out in a couple weeks:

Also Black Label makes an 8.75 that's pretty similar to your Welcome(the label uses the same wood as Deluxe)

Northern Co has a pretty solid reputation and makes an 8.75 in this graphic(not too many shops stock them though)

You do you though
All you got is today, get out and skate.

thanks for all he replies and suggestions. i think I'm leaning towards a northern co or a transportation unit. Both are companies I've been wanting to try. might check out quasi though.

I've seen some DLX shapes on instagram that they're doing a 8.75 full and someone posted a 9" Anti Hero popsicle shape that might've been full? Maybe not.

birdhouse makes 8.75s!

checkout socalskateshop.com

they have a good selection, at the very least they are a good place to window shop, as they are one of the few online stores that try to list as much shape info as they can in the description.

currently riding a welcome jordan sanchez 8.8

Riding the same size nowadays, not a lot of options in 8,75: Antihero, Polar, Zero, Clich?, Santa Cruz, Creature, Quasi, Heroin, Death, Plan B...

One question, which size are you riding with the Jordan Sanchez deck? it's not available in the shape guide of Welcome and i'm wondering if people rides' em with 149 or 159?

I'm guessing 159s no?
even on an 8.5 welcome you could easily rock 159s
