that suede patch on the heel looks like grass, and kills, what IMO would be a fun colorway. I could still maybe get away with these as skate only, not really trying to rock them casually

I absolutely do not understand the appeal of a mid 2000's mall shoe colorway when there are more neutral options that will likely sell better.

They will produce signifigantly less of this colorway
Natas gets a shoe thats clearly "The Natas" colorway.
Diversifies the the product Line at lower risk
Imagine for second, natas wanted your standard B/Wgum. That colorway is done. They can never do it without natas's name without drama.
I'm sure natas picked his own colors and did something fun and doesn't really care about sales
Projects like this are about marketing, not sales.

Those new Tyshawn's look so much better than the current

Agree - little bit boring for Tyshawn- but fully my style.
All black and woud skate that one.

I was going to say this but couldn’t figure out a good way to phrase it. But yeah, the 440s, or 600s would be sick in that color.

Is anyone really asking for a Natas shoe?

not my cup of tea but as others have pointed out its a tribute to his famous pro model deck

i also googled natas etnies and they're leather hi tops so kinda makes sense.

Girls from my 8th grade class in 07 would love those Natas’. Big gonna  grab an auntie Anne’s pretzel then steal a pin from hot topic vibe.

These look way better than the first model, yet nothing to write home about... I can see the toe piece getting unstitched after a couple of sessions.
I wonder if Scott Johnston designed those before getting fired.

It wasn’t him… he also wasn’t fired, he left.

Do these have a release date?

honestly, just that natas got a signature shoe in 2024 is pretty sick. putting that aside, it's his shoe, it's his colorway. they didn't make this to appeal to anyone besides natas. It's pure 80s, and a nice little tribute. I would buy it and wear it 100%. Does it look like those old mall-core shoes? Yeah, but who do you think inspired that?

Do you have any info on where he is going? Like is it another skate shoe company or a lifestyle brand that is dipping into skate shoes? From the way he was explaining it it sounded like a fashion brand like Golden Goose or P448.

I guess similar to a regular Samba. Should be fairly skate able, but didn't try them myself.

I have no clue tbh...

Puma trying to get back into skating again?

I feel like I see them do stuff like this every now and then only for them to bow out quietly.

I have a soft spot for squishmallows but these don't come in my size.

the suede xl has been out for a minute. They also have the Japan team. Maybe Joey scared them from the US market?

Since he joined Cons, it looks like he's a lot more willing to skate their vulcs. He was skating his Jack Purcell colorways for a while.

I wish that Gravis shoe had come out...
[close]

I was a gravis fiend but do we have a pic of this shoe that never came out? never heard about it somehow
[close]

When they were around Ripped Laces had an article on one of the first shoes he was skating on Cons. Once he started getting shoes.

I think they even had photos and shared that he bought all the stock of his shoe or something.
[close]
For nostalgia sake I checked rippedlaces.com and sure is somebody who has nothing to do with the OG.
[close]

Before slap I used to check them and wear tested religiously.
[close]

So trippy to see my old workplace here. Wrote and skated and etc for rippedlaces for a few years in their heyday. Wish it was still around!

i wrote a few articles for them too, was fun.

❤️❤️❤️❤️ 🥲🥲🥲🥲, I asked to restart a few years back before I saw the site transfer occur. 😓 Good times, hope you both are thriving and doing well!

He hasn't added their name to his LinkedIn yet but apparently started there in March so he might be under NDA still.




I like these except for the big fucking N. That ruins every New Balance shoe for me. Same with the standard swoosh. I like Adidas's stripes and the Asics wave.

If anyone knows how they skate let me know. I've been addicted to the Puigs for years now and the Tyshawn lows skated okay to me.

The Natas 480 sold better at my store than most of the recent limited releases from other brands(besides Nike)
And tbh it looks better on foot than in those pics. Swap the yellow laces out and it’s pretty acceptable.

That’s what I figured. Wish companies would start having promo pics of lace swaps if the shoe comes with extra ones.

I hope those Tyshawns have a better insole than the shitty ones they use. I just got a pair of the Superstar ADV from skating in the Nike Leo, and its a massive downgrade in comfort
