Vm002 has a toecap. Although pretty minimal right at the toe a la vans style 36.

I really hope last resort starts moving towards more of a huf look, atleast aesteically , with their shoes. I find their shoes they have out right now look and feel way too thick and bulky. I noramlly just skate plain canvas converse or chuck 70s but i really want to support pontus and a genuine skater owned brand. Hopefully next shoe they drop is going to be something thin and light and mayyyybe have a toe cap, would be too sick.

Also Dane is confirmed on last resort, seen two clips of him in their shoes floatong around aswell as a story that ace posted that was just a pic of his setup  and his foot ontop in which he had the all black lows on.

You surely don't sound like a fan of Pontus if you just want him to make a Converse replica for you to skate. How long have you had a pair of Last Resorts on your feet/skated them?
Or he just wants LR to make something he prefers to skate and can support and also loves Pontus' companies and skating? Being a fan doesn't mean everything the person puts out is to your taste...

Pontus pre-LRAB did alot of collabs with cons so it makes sense a fan of him would be used to cons shoes.

I wish I didn't have to look at your sig in every thread tbh. That shit is annoying and usually so are your posts.

Where in my post did I define what being a fan meant to me? I didn't even say he was not a fan. I said he doesn't sound like a fan. I said this because he mentioned wishing Last Resort would move in the aesthetic direction of HUF and that he basically wants a Chuck Taylor knock off. So those were the reasons I said he doesn't SOUND like a fan, and why I asked if he'd ever actually tried the shoes. Thanks for the standard douchebag response though... Orrrrrr like maybeeeeee.... did you like consider... umm.... duhhh.....  ::)

Yo. Hold up. I feel like Iím taking mentally unstable pills here or something: the abís are already very, very similar to a cons shoe, no? Like if it was much more similar, itíd just be the other thing. What am I missing?

Ive skated a pair of the highs for about 3 weeks and while they are thin, theyre not as thin as I prefer for skating. I didnt say that I want Pontus to make a knock off chuck taylor, I just said I hope they make a shoe comparible in thickness to a classic chuck. I dont get how me liking skatin thinner shoes and liking how a toe cap skates make me "not a fan" of pontus. You sound incompetent as fuck.

Reread your own post out loud. My response to that was fine. My post had none of the "standard douchebag response" tropes you claimed. All I did was respond to what your post read as. And why does wanting a chuck rip off make it sound like hes not a fan? Polar did assloads of cons collabs before LRAB. The LRAB sole pattern is literally a rip of the chuck sole.

The canvas hi-tops might actually be more like Cons? That's my main concern.

For me it's the actual opposite, I'm glad that they have made a thick padded "plain/cons looking" shoe.
The '80s were the worst period. You had these horrible pop bands growing their hair and calling themselves metal.

If anyone is interested, I'm selling a few pairs in size 13 here: https://www.slapmagazine.com/index.php?topic=116213.0

I bought two too many pairs and I'd rather spend that cash on the vegan version when it drops.

I am also really looking forward to the new drop. A few locals that Pontus is flowing shoes already have the new colorways so the shoes should be dropping soon enough.

I would just get an US10. I buy the same size Vans as I do Last Resorts.

If you can afford 2 pairs of "no frills" skate shoes, buy some States and a pair of these, if you can only afford one pair, get the States. I say this because I need State to continue to exist so I can continue skating their shoes. Also, they did it first and without making a gimmick out of the fact they have no gimmick.

Big fan of Pontus but I suspect he doesn't need your money and this company will do fine anyway (I hope it does).

Problem is State don't look great and for most people don't have the same appeal. In the UK they just end up in Route One's bargain bin. It's a shame, yeah, but buying stuff you don't really like that much just so it exists isn't how most people make their purchases.

There was a VERY sus pic of a lotties T-shirt in the LR insta of what looked like cartoon Satan and a very nazi-era caricature of a Jewish man.

Compared with

Maybe its that particular artist’s R. Crumb rip-off style, but hooked noses on seedy looking dudes is a little too close to the images that come up when you search for nazi caricatures of Jews.

FWIW Mike Lotti (the artist) is Jewish and went as far as to remove Two Felons from his skate shop shirt when he found about their WP connection. Not in a position to elaborate on his motives but felt it worth mentioning.
I know we aren't madness shaming in the gear section, come on were better than this.

Maybe a bit of Cons influence but Stepney WC is what Alv is ripping off. My pal has a pair of the lows in all black and they seem ordinary. Just a court shoe. Last Resort is just the discounted Stepney WC....

i don't know, at this point, it has all been done. last resorts are like all basic vulcs in one. little bit of cons, little bit of vans, little nostalgia like sheep or airwalk(fat and strong laces) little bit of higher prized skate inspired sneakers like swc, no doubt.

swc have that weird little nub on the inside of the outsole. that always rubs me the wrong way. have thought about buying a pair a few times though. i'm sure they skate fine and they seem well made. but i agree, they look pretty ordinary.

Well, Stepney's are a knock off Adidas Loveset (an old archival Adidas silhouette) but with a higher sidewall anyway... Nothing's 100% original at this point and smaller brands take inspiration from everywhere since they dont have a legacy to base stuff from.
I still think Last Resorts look a lot more like a Cons without branding (One Star CC) than SWC. Panelling, shoe shape wise and even the fuckin' outsole is basically the same, so I dont see why you think the other way around... maybe colorways?!

those eyelet/lace panels and toebox look nothing like the last resort VM001.  The shape and the tongue opening panel is pretty similar, yeah. But as @Sk.A.T.A.N said, everything "new" takes inspiration from other footwear silhouettes and history. Those SWC are a clear rip of those adidas...

as earlier mentioned, these are available in the UK but coming soon to US with the next drop i'd guess. Probably see the vegan model at the same time? not sure.

That was quick, green and yellow lows restocked and also hi's available now. Interesting enough both the same $85 price, instead 85/95 for lows/highs
