anyone have on feet pics of the vm001 hi/vm002 low? (sz 12-13)
looking to get a pair as chillers but wonder if they look clownish
bigger sizes tend to do that but some silhouettes work

Size 11, best I got:

I wear 12s and I think the hi's look great, not clownish at all (as opposed to my 11.5 CTAS hi which I do think look goofy).  The LRABs are well-proportioned.

I wear a size 12 in suedes and 13 in canvas and to me they look way better than some other shoes. I think because the design keeps the toe relatively short, they don't end up looking like clown shoes. The white VM002s I'm wearing with dress pants in the photos so the pants are a little floody.

BART HARLEY!! Hey, are you normally a 12 or 13 in other shoe brands? Iím like a 12.5 and like a slightly wider toe box so I wear 13s. Just not sure which direction to go in based on the general discussion about the fit on these.

I wear a 13 in vans and Nike, and the size 12 suedes are perfect for me. I would say if youíre getting suedes go for size 12, if youíre getting canvas go for a 13. I have high arches and also like a wider toe box. The only model I havenít tried yet are the VM003s so I canít speak to how they fit.

Update on my VM001 canvas his: The VM001 suede los are probably my favorite shoe of the past couple of years. My expectations were not high for the canvas, but I figured I'd skate them and get them out of the way. I've been super pleasantly surprised with how they skate and how long they've lasted. Super durable, I've just had to apply shoe goo to my main ollie hole but otherwise I've been running them a couple of months no problem. The biggest issue I've had (as other LAB riders now) is the sole wearing. One of my locals is super slippery and I feel like I can barely push sometimes because the sole has no grip anymore. I think after these I'll try to get my hands on a pair of the VM003s.

If anyone's considering them, I'd say go for it you won't be disappointed.

Iím on my third pair of VM001 Hiís and the sole definitely wears on the quicker side but honestly I havenít noticed much of a difference in the actual grip even as the sole starts to smooth over. By the time it begins to feels slippery other aspects of the shoe have already started to deteriorate as well. Basically it looks way worse than it feels in my experience. Best kicks.

This picture inspired me to finally buy the true blue canvas high ones.  Skated a few pairs of the lows but Iíve never had the highs.  They look so good.

Hell yeah. They just skate so good. And I get crazy compliments on them.

Same here. I skate mine until I get a hole under my toe and even then they still have enough grip for me. My last pair of VM001s lasted 65 hours of skating.

Same. Ideally it wouldn't wear down as fast but the grip is still there after it wears down. I've noticed that once the main tread wears away, there is a zig zag pattern that reveals itself under the big toe area, and that gives it more grip.

Has anyone whose skated the VM003 had a problem with the collar rubbing the back of their ankle? Since the VM003 doesn't have like padded collar like the 001 or 002, I wonder if anyones had an issue. I assume it's not any worse than vans authentics but I know if I don't have a pair for a while or if I push in them for too long I get irritation.

Also, any notes on the sizing? Vm003 same sizing as the VM001 canvas?

Mine rubbed a tiny bit the first time I wore them but by the time I actually got around to skating them they were absolutely fine. I love the slimness of them and I think they're my favourite LRAB shoe so far. I want to give the canvas highs a go next because they're unpadded too.

Edit: They fit me much better than the suede VM001 & 2, but they're my first canvas pair so I can't comment on how they're different from the canvas VM001. The lack of padding means the heel fits really snug and the different toe box allows you to tighten them more than the VM001 & 2.

Awesome, thanks. I found a pair on sale in my usual size so i pulled the trigger. I'm about done with my VM001 his, you should definitely grab a pair.

Been considering these for a while, but went for the suede VM001 lows for summer. Reckon I will pick a pair of the canvas hi up next.

I went to TTS on them too and they fitÖ great.  Makes me wonder if I couldíve been doing that the whole time instead of shoving my feet into half a size down haha

Any suede, size down to 12. Canvas is a little tougher, but I would say go 13 unless you like shoes to feel really fitted/snug.

LRAB VM003s just showed up yesterday, they actually feel great. Going to wear them for a bit but looking forward to skating them in a couple of weeks.

Cross post from the Shoe thread. So excited for these guys. Sizing is actually closer to the Suede VM001/VM002s I think, so I would recommend a half size down for people interested in them. They're definitely wider than my Canvas VM001s and the toe box is nice and roomy.
