So, I wear a 13, have a wideish foot, (especially toebox) top of my arch sits kind of high. I want a vegan shoe if possible.

The new Vans are such dog shit in terms of the slip-ons and skate-his. Im gonna try the half cabs but if they dont work out...

What should I try? @rothdigga got an idea?

For a couple of vegan options, try the one listed above (NM213SAM) which just posted today and also should be at shops any day now.  The 13 in that shoe will fit a little large, more like a 13.5, but that might not be a bad thing.
Our other upcoming vegan option is the Franky NM255FRV.  That one is just now hitting shops.  A 13 in that should also be a decent width.  I would try the 213 first given that you said you had a wide foot.

Sick. Thanks. Are there gonna be any colors for the 213 other than the white?
There are plenty of other options on the 213's, but these are the only vegan option as all of the other ones use suede (they're a canvas/suede mix).  We usually do a 213 every other season as now that we have 440-hi, we don't need that many mid/Hi top options.

I'll be getting Samrria's shoe for sure. I can't personally pull off white shoes but whatever...

These look great in the pictures, def copping a pair.

My local just got a restock of a few of the og black suede so I grabbed a pair. Finding they're comfier on my wide foot than the brown/green just because of the mesh on top of the toebox instead of suede, so these white/gum ought to be the same.
Cheetah, I've contacted McDonald's corporate and they're going to terminate your WiFi access unless you buy something.

Never worn New Balances but thinking of copping a pair of the 306l's.

I wear an 11 in Vans, should I order an 11 in NBs? Unfortunately have to do mailorder.

For NB, I think it really depends on the exact shoe model. For the 306s, I went TTS like I do for Vans, and they fit great.

I am a 9.5 in Vans. I had to go up to a 10 in the 306 as well as the 255.
How much for an order of ribs?
