Has anyone been able to try any pairs from drop 10 yet with the new insoles?
 
If so, is it still recommend to go 1/2 size down or TTS now re the Gifted Hater video?

I skated the canvas highs for an hour yesterday and Giftedís review is pretty spot on. I wore them TTS with the OG insoles before and they were a tiny bit loose, D10 are a tiny a bit tight on me. The experience of skating them was he describes too. They feel much more like a pro Vans shoe and it took a little getting used to. Also my feet got hotter than in my other canvas pairs. I donít know if thatís down to the insole, print or some other change I donít know about.

Edit: It sounds like a load of negatives but they are definitely a huge upgrade and worth the wait. Photos donít do the cracked colourway justice either. I got tons of compliments for them at the skatepark and from randos in the pub.

I got tts and they feel perfect, I tried on the .5 down too and they felt too tight so Iíd agree tts is a safe bet

Got the Milics in a .5 size down like I usually have in the suede shoes and they feel a smidge tight I reckon. I guess I should've listened and gone TTS.

The soles do not look good on loafers but maybe they look better in person. Also, they would be better without the tassels.

while cool-guying is a real phenomenon, studies show that 83% of all cool-guying incidents can be attributed to the cool-guyee being an awkward weirdo

Got my new canvas high tops today (black crackle ones) they fit snug a size down but feel good, the canvas will stretch some. The new insoles feel nice.

Just picked up vm001 from the latest drop, went with size 9 (was wearing 9.5 in the crockets if that helps anyone. Theyíre a bit skinny but I think theyíll be pretty perfect when they stretch a bit.  Iím hoping these skate as well as I think they will and I can finally move away from vans-too many issues with the foxing separating from the sole or suede upper.  Anyone have issues with separating?  Iíd really like these to be my go to, and I think the new insole is gonna finally make LRís a shoe I wanna skate

I can say after a week of skating the milics Iím a huge fan, best vulc Iíve skated in a while and I havenít skated lows this comfortably in years. My local shop has the green pair in my size so Iíll probably get another pair before theyíre gone.

I ended up hating the suede vm001 highs because they just fit like shit and make my feet and back hurt. I had the canvas lows and highs previously and the highs were a little too snug and never broke in. I loved the lows, though. Would like to try the vm003 or milics, they seem like a roomier fit than vm001.

Are they phasing out the VM002? That was my favorite of their shoes. My local doesnít carry that model, as they said no one bought them.

Hopefully not. I love the 002's but I've been skating 003 high alot more lately. Maybe since they released that, plus the cupsole coming out they've decided to slow down the 002?

I'll say out of the 001 and 003 (haven't skated the 004 yet), the 002 have no appeal to me. Mainly because the both the ones I listed skated so good. Idk the 002 don't have the "it" factor for me but maybe i'll skate some

Same here, the 002 is the only one I stopped skating before they were completely wrecked so I could use them as my beater shoes. something about the way they fit feels a little less secure than the 001 and 003 and I love the way the canvas highs skate.

Where can i get some white replacement laces for my VM001's? (low top)

I've seen LARB replacement laces online but i havent seen them specify what models they're for. I don't want to purchase the wrong length laces.
.....Nah

Shoe sizing in general is so weird to me. I've had about 5 pairs of Crocketts and 5 pairs of lrab suede high. I do 9 in Crockett and 9.5 in lr. In all shoes I pull the insoles and use fp. Overall I like the lr more, i don't like multiple layers and stiching on the toe like Crockett have.

Would try the loafers (especially in a different colorway) for when I have to work in office.

If they make the suede high in a cup that might be my shoe for the foreseeable future.

They have them on the LRAB site, I believe the lows are the 120 cm cause they only come in 120 or 130

in general the laces are good, pretty thick and 100% cotton. they hold up quite well.
if you put some superglue on them in the affected areas they hold up perfectly well too.
