super tempted on these but never had nb numerics before so i have no clue about their sizing. What if i told you i'm a 9'5 in vans pros, and a 9 (most of the times) in adidas/sb? cheers!

I would say go your normal size for these. Im a size 10 and I wear my usual size for the Tiago pro model NB# and have a couple of other normal NB running/chiller shoes in a 10 and they all fit great!

Iíd be a little confused because I thought Nikes ran small? I wear 10 in Vans, 10 in Adidas and 10 in most other shoes (9.5 in Cons). Iíd say if you have a regular fit go true to size, if your foot is narrow maybe go with the 9. But tbh I never heard of Adidas running bigger than Vans, or Nike for that matter.

P.s. these are my favorite shoes I can remember skating. I usually try something new each time but I think Iíll be sticking with these for a while.

Not to throw a wrench into this but I will anyway.
I had to 0.5 up in my 440s [Slap eBay colorway I got during the summer ;)] like I do with most NB# shoes. BUT, I'm TTS in almost all Nike, Vans, and Adidas, so maybe my foot is slightly wider compared to NB# lasts and that's why I 0.5 size up on almost everything (288, 533 v1 and v2, 868, 379, 255, 440)?
Also, I find it interesting that some people find Nikes run small when they've been nearly all TTS for me (cup and vulc)

Back on topic, I would say go 9.5, as well. If they feel slightly loose, you can always swap with a nicer insole (if you have them on hand) to see if that makes the fit more ideal. If not, hopefully returns are possible and you can try the 9 if 9.5 doesn't work out.

Well not to throw another wrench in this, but I bought a pair of the Slap lowtop 440s in a size 10 (same as the 440 high). And I feel like those run slightly smaller than the 440 high. I have a wider foot too, and I felt like I couldnít even skate in the low top 440ís but I gave them about 6 sessions and they started to feel really good. That played into my decision to buy the size 10 in the high tops. The high tops have a more supple leather that breaks in instantly IMO.
I havenít had a Nike Skate shoe since my freshman year of high school (Iím 31) so Iím not qualified to speak on their sizing. Most of their non-skate shoes run a little narrow and I usually go a half size up.

TLDR; dude, wherever you buy your 440s try them on first or check about the return policy.  If you donít buy them, me and this other guy just confused the shit out of everyone for no reason.

Converse Rival Mid
I got these from an outlet for basically nothing to see how they skate, first impression is very slippery but the look-down factor is sick.

These are really dope, great colorway as well.

Been seeing Kaue Cossa skating these a lot lately. Very interested to try a pair

Those do look nice. I had been tempted to use a 30% off code on the Lynx Zero but I wasn't crazy about the first colorways. There is a nice black/gum one now though. Hmmmm.

I had the opposite experience. They look nice in photos to me but we have them at the shop and they're like boots they're so bulky. You know how sometimes you can tell a shoe is a no-go literally the second your foot makes it all the way in? That was these. Couldn't take them off quick enough, which was a bummer because I used to love the lynx back in the day and was hoping these would actually be slimmer somehow, but no such luck. Make my feet look like a size 13.

maybe i'm missing a frame of reference for comparison, but i'd thought they'd look fatter than this, or would have an even more squareish shape from the online pics i've seen. and then with feet it's also different again, although i guess not as much with a shoe with as much structural integrity as this.

not gonna lie, they would be too fat for me as well, but the wearer in the pic rocks em real nice imo.

they really aren't that fat. I'm going to need to break them in for skating for sure though as I'm not used to a cupsole that thick.

our local was having an anniversary sale last week with 20% off shoes. so these cost me $88 + tax. not bad for something I'd never thought I'd be able to purchase again let alone for under retail. by far my favorite dunk hi's this year.

Snagged these at Ross for pretty cheap earlier today. Camo ainít really my style but because they were so cheap and because OG Old Skools are my favorite shoes to skate in of all time I ended up snagging them anyways, just gonna skate em and deal with the fact that theyíre camo. I remember posting a pair of other shoes in this thread months ago and one or two people were giving me grief for it because the laces were put on a bit crooked, so for this pic I intentionally kept the laces unkempt as fuck just to rile those same people up. I hope the shitty lace job and camo combo is making you cringe like listening to nails on a chalkboard, muahahah
(Note: I actually made all that up, in actuality I took the pic in a hurry without noticing the laces at all at first, after the pic was taken I noticed and I immediately fixed em up a bit but was just too lazy to take another picture lol; sloppy lace jobs donít bother me but this was even a bit too much for me to even look at)

Noble, I've seen a few people with that exact shoe in the wild: skating and just walking around. You don't notice the camo that much. It's fairly subtle since it's darker. in my opinion. You should be good to go on that end.  8)

I've skated a few reeboks over the past 2 years. I'm currently skating the reebok royal complete. These by far are the best.

Cushioning is minimal, but feel great to me - no need to switch the insole - I like 'em how they come - and they aren't too big like all the other 8.5 adidas I have.

@Firebert good to know, sleek silhouette for sure. Did the heel feel clunky at all with the unnecessary outsole and traction piece?

Set up a new Zero I had (will post in Set up Thread later) but I'm toying with pairing one of these with it. Just not sure which. Don't know if I should revisit one already skated or try a new one (Joslin 2 and Americana )
Only the Reynolds G6 and Evants had a proper sessions. Everything else is just casually worn.
Also, yes I love SoleTech shoes and I think they make some of the best shoes currently! Fight me   :D

After the pair of Jordan 1 lows I skated, I needed to see what the mids were like, and I like them even more. If you're like me and enjoy skating in leather cupsoles, then I seriously recommend. I think I'm gonna be a Jordan 1 guy for a while.

Thing is too the mids can be found consignment and resale for very reasonable prices, especially if you're ok with slightly used. These cost me $45 on depop.

 
Ah good day, to youse
