haha good looks jay!  i was looking for the white/white/red.  they were pretty much all white, light grey toe cap & N, with a gum bottom.  little hits of red on the toe tag and back

edit: https://wearecivil.com/shop/footwear/new-balance-440-white-white-red/
full size run, no 13s lol
ahh yeah these are a over year or so old. I actually have that exact pair in a 13 too. Worn though and lightly skated. How desperate are you for a pair? I can send a pic if you DM.

Got my 420s today, and they look pretty good! For my next pair though, I'm definitely going a half size up to 11.5. The 11s are a little snug, but they should be workable with thinner socks. If you happen to be someone like me who is 11 in some shoes, 11.5 in others, lean towards 11.5. I would return them to get a new pair, but looks like they're already all out.

Since 420 had been the shoe of the moment on this thread nothing better to remind the best colorway they had:

I was so bummed they were too big for me :(

Yes but those ones were the rubber material and thus tend to be super hard/ inflexible. The faux suede ones are infinitely better imho.
And yes, I could probably half size up on them too depending on the socks I wear (and if you put in a chunkier insole)

i've been looking everywhere for a size 13 pair of white 440s and i can not for the life of me find them bigger than a 12.  the pair i want is a little bit older so i kind of get it, but how do they fit?  any chance i could size down?
[close]

I would stick with your proper size 13 on those.  We do have an all white NM440CLN dropping for Fall that should be in stores and online this month.  I would hope you can find some 13's somewhere.
Do most releases have a significantly lower number of size 13 than other sizes? I donít know if maybe just my shops donít stock that size heavy or if itís just not available for them to order. Or maybe Iím just too slow.

Arches in the Tiago 1010's feel extra high.
Snip
Has anybody else noticed a seemingly extra tall arch in your 1010's?

I'm not sure I'm going to be able to keep these even though I like everything else about them.

Try swapping to a different, flatter insole. That might help! I'm definitely sizing a half size down in my next pair, that way I can tie em all loose like  8)

I pulled the insoles out and I really don't think that's where the hearts feel is coming from. Here's the thing I think is causing it.

I have the Brown pair with the black sole and noticed this too. I wore them one day to break them in but even walking hurt my feet so bad. I wanted to like these so much but they are basically collecting dust.

first session in the 440 High last night, and they felt perfect.  perfectly soft where I want them to be soft, thin where I want them to be thin, support where I want support, great heel lock, and best part of any high is that they are very comfortable wrapped around your ankles.  love em.

After like the first 5-10 minutes of every session in the 1010s I get pain in the middle of my feet (kinda like when you lace up ill fitting ice skates too tightly, if you know what I mean) so I sit down for a bit until it goes away and itís fine after that.

I encourage trying to get used to them, for me they have been a very durable and secure shoe that completely removed the low back pain I used to get after every session with Vans Pros.

I bought 4 pairs of those things and hope they keep them in regular seasonal rotation. They basically solve the recent dunk hi cost-prohibitive factor.

440 is a good dunk replacement you say? The 1010 is such a great shoe, but Iíll have to try the 440

Theyíre good enough for me to flip the brand new Baroque dunks and Orange Label dunks I had on ice for cash.

the 508s were... disappointing. the shitty abzorb insole with how crazy low the heel support on them was made these shoes really disappointing based on all the good things i've heard about them.

OG Westgate 913 is back!

https://www.newbalance.com/pd/nm913/NM913V1-36969.html

I personally think these are way better than the 508 and hopefully that is why they're bringing it back now.

Grabbed a pair of these and the new grey colorway of the Tiago (two posts up), today. Neither shoe is what I would typically wear but god damn did NB nail it with the comfort factor on both shoes. Will probably end up skating the 913 later down the road, but both are chillers for now. Think it's been mentioned here (and I rarely ever do this, I'm a tried and true 12 in almost every shoe) but half size down on the 1010's. Will definitely be copping more in the future.

Edit: Figured I'd add that I'm currently skating the 440 lows and loving them. Nice, minimal cup sole.

Thats how I felt about my 440 lows. Honestly makes it hard to go back to vulcs. My local just got a NB# account and Im stoked to get to try some on/buy some from them
Every time the McRib comes out I buy it. I don't even like the damn things.

Agreed. Who thought that Tiffany eyelet was a good match for the main colours?

What are some colours yall would like to see? I'd love a chocolate brown suede with black or gum sole, red eyelet, minimal black detailing. Also suede on top of the toe, not mesh.

But it would also be sick to have a black on black colorway with red eyelets and hits. I also really love the idea of this color scheme translated onto a 1010

That colorway on a Tiago would be an insta buy and Iíve never even had a pair
