Anyone see these at a shop in the bay area? I really wanna cop, but I wanna try em on first. I'm making a trip this weekend, and I really doubt any of the shops near me have these (central coast, CA)

Check Billís Wheels in Santa Cruz on your way to the bay. They had them recently.

Also check Atlas in San Mateo

Chiming into say Iím on my fifth session of the VM-001 Hi blue/black and theyíre the most comfortable skate shoe Iíve ever had straight out of the box; holding up super well on brand new grip tape too.

Iíve never fucked with athletic footwear; skated state and puma on and off for a while, mainly vans for years, but last resort is lightyears ahead of all three in terms of comfort and quality. Def going to be skating them indefinitely despite the hefty price tag. Stoked to have another option out there thatís skater owned.

Shamelessly posting this cause Iím currently decluttering before a big move - if anyone wants to scratch that itch and pull the trigger on these.

I skated a pair and love them. The fit reminds me of a vans epoch sport. Already eyeing a second pair - Iím just not a fan of this color way so Iím selliní.

I have no evidence to back this up but I feel like they are going to drop a Dane Brady part with the announcement of him on the team. Haven't seen the dude for years tho, just have a feeling.

I may try a pair, but my feet are so wide... not sure I can fit. Don't feel like trying shoes on at the store right now...

Somebody posted here or in the general upcoming thread that they DM'd Pontus and he said "soon"
I'd bet by the end of the month.

i ordered hi top a size up after literally measuring my foot like the size guide on the website said I should. I'm a true 12.5 but have sized down to 12 w footprints for the last couple years in vans and non-chuck converse. Pretty wide feet I guess. Plan to trade em in for a 12 if they're really too big, but I might not skate them at all because of the stitched in insole/they look nice/vulcs are getting harder for me to skate.

To be frank it's funny to me to give Pontus more money but even if it's corny occasionally, he's never done wrong w his companies. Weird that theres only been like insta footage so far, but covid severely hinders the whole pontus filming thing, right?

yes correct.  unless you're dealing with ankle issues that would do well with the support/protection, or have a delicate butterfly's flick that would be restricted by it.

Any europals order directly from Last Resort website recently?

I'm wondering where they ship from because if they're shipped from UK I don't want anything to do with it. Since Brexit, anything shipped from UK is a mess. But if they're shipping from EU it should be fine.

I already DM'd them like a man but also wanted to see if anyone had any personal experience with it lately... Thanks!

It seems that they are shipping from within' the EU, the last drop wasn't even available for Europe as all the shoes were in the UK, so I guess this time they have all sorted out.
The '80s were the worst period. You had these horrible pop bands growing their hair and calling themselves metal.

So completely fucking annoyed with the changes to Vans I went on and out of pure frustration just bought a pair of LRAB His and one pair of Lo's (and a tee). I fucking hate vans for what they've done to their shoes, but I hope this wasnt a mistake copping so much LRAB in one go, sight unseen, but they have some 13s now so I went for it.

I think it was already clear when he moved to Portugal, which probably has the lowest taxations in the whole of Europe.

That is not true. You are confusing it with cheap cost of living (which is not even that cheap when your salary is -/+ 700 a month). Taxes are pretty high in Portugal, that's why there's a lot of Portuguese companies that suddenly are based in the Netherlands (for example), for obvious tax invasion reasons... You do get some exceptions on taxes for a few years if you're a foreigner creating a new business in the country (I think, at least it used to be like that).

I didn't know about companies but for what I know personal taxes and living costs are pretty low.

I remember reading about a lot of people would retire there because of no taxation on their income.
