Last Resort AB - The Thread.
« on: January 22, 2021, 02:46:07 AM »
I've noticed there isn't an "official thread" for them.

Also, I was wondering if any EuroPALS have any idea if and when we'll be able to get some shoes.

The website is still UK only because of Brexit.

Great shoes tho!

I can't wait until I can try some on in person and skate them.

I would love to never need to give another penny to Nike/Adidas/etc.

And, yeah, it's fucked they can't ship to Eu now. It seems some shops have them, but they can't ship directly? I know Nozbone (Paris) has them in stock on their site and WallStreet (Lyon) posted that they have them, but they aren't listed on their site.

Yep, same here. Got a pair of the lows in black from the first drop but they are slightly big and I've been skating hi tops for the past 5/6 years so I don't wanna risk it.

Thanks for the head's up. I'll go check Nozebone.

they somehow didn't appear on the search, but also I was looking for a more Shoes & Gear related side of it.

I've managed to get a pair from a UK shop but I'm afraid I'll have to pay taxes upon arrival and they are going to take 1/2 weeks to arrive.

These look good too

Wearing my pair from the first drop now. I think the second drop they made a couple of small changes. Or maybe it is between the low and the high. Foxing looked a touch lower. The laces felt a bit thinner on the new drop, or revised a bit. One criticism is that black suede bled into the white laces a bit. I have black laces in them now and love the look.

Consolidating some info from other threads

Very glad I got these,  the toe box doesn't look as stumpy in bigger sizes, looks a little more balanced.

They feel about a half size bigger than most shoes. I am usually a UK 10.5/EU45 and could have probably fit into 10s.

So are these essentially just Louies, but with fancier materials? Anyone skated both?
[close]
have both and didnt even think of this comparison until now. I guess the shape is similar but other than that the build is different in every aspect Id say. Thickness of foxing, different rubber, heavier suede, the weight of canvas backing the suede to hold shape, midsole, insole, eyelet panel, laces, leather liner. Fit and finish is just more premium, LL feels like a traditional vulc.

Damn it, now I have to buy some.

These came in yesterday. Probably the most comfortable shoes I've ever put on.

Skate very well too. Ordered 2 new pairs that are coming today as well. Anyone who likes blazers should definitely give these a go.

Bumming out so hard because after waiting forever for them I got the highs and felt a tiny bit big like others have mentioned, so i ripped out the glued in insole thinking different insoles would fix it but to no avail...still feel a tad big and im bummed. Haven't worn them at all and tags still on but insole ripped out...

what size? Maybe someone here could make it work. Does the stock insole still work, or did you tear/damage when ripping out?

Size 9.5, it left some foam glued on the inside of the shoe but would probably go back in fine. Trouble is I'm not sure if the 9 would perhaps be too tight just barely...That was always my problem with Hufs. 9.5 felt a quarter size too big, and 9 felt a quarter size too small so I could never wear hufs.

I, like many others, am insane about the way my shoes fit (gotta be snug) and if it's not quite right all hell breaks loose

Sounds like you should just put on an extra pair of thick socks and wear them in to fit. They bag out like all vulc so theyll give for sure (alternatively, bust out the shoe stretchers - but wearing them in sounds the best option). Good luck!

If you end up wanting to sell em I'd cop. I'm a size 10 so they'd probably work for me.

On my second pair now, and am really enjoying them. Don't think I'll be skating anything else for a while. Looks like we'll see some snippets of the 3rd drop soon.

Has Pontus or anyone mentioned different models of shoes in the future? Im curious if theyll stick to the kind of vans/cons-esque look or if theyll branch out. Id love to support last resort Im just not feeling their current aesthetic. I like to look from a afar, but not something Id wear yet

Wanted throw in my opinion.
Wider foot and on my first pair. Went TTS. The length felt nice and they are comfortable, not as much heelock as Id like but they are well made, just not for wider feet. My arch area melted over and the shoe feels fine but I can see it adding up if I wear them for and extended amount of time.
Nothing I do deserves more than an iphone camera.
