Thanks for the 002 fit response.  I'm gonna buy a pair, but I do want to get the sizing right.  Sounds like you own both styles... did you find the 001's a little big for you when you went tts?  Because some said they didn't find them big, but I found them about a half size large.  Are you saying that the 002's fit more tts than the 001's?  Because Blazer's fit just right on me.  Thanks.

Yeah the 01's fit my foot lengthwise pretty well but I have pretty narrow feet so there's a little bit of room on the sides and top. That's even more the case with the high top 01. I haven't spent a lot of time walking around in the 02's yet and I haven't skated them but my initial impression is it they feel much more secure around my foot, but about the same in length, which works for me really well. I think that the Blazer mid is pretty much the perfect shoe and wear that most of the time. By comparison these are a tiny bit looser than I would like, but still fit better than the '01s. I've entertained the idea of going down a half size but I feel like the length would ruin my life if I did that so there isn't a perfect solution on my end yet

This is pretty much my exact issue. I have really narrow feet and the fit you describe has also been my experience.   The 001 felt a quarter size too big all around.  I am gonna go a half size down on my next order.  Iím getting a pair of both 001ís and 002ís, so I will let you know how it goesóhopefully it doesnít suck!

Yes, I look forward to hearing how a half size down breaks in! I feel like it's almost not actually a problem, but it still weirds me out a bit.

I want to like LRAB, the branding and team I'm into but that stumpy toe I just can't get behind. Feels a little too Walmart Vans too me.

it works a lot better on those one piece toecap styles. i agree these look too stubby. the lacehole panel is also a bit wide. could be a decent one star alternative if it would be reworked slightly. recess the laces a bit and slim that panel down and i think it would look much better.

spot on. these new ones really need some care

Where the fuck are these vegan jawns?! The LRAB instagram showed them shipping out from the warehouse over a week ago.  Did they sink in the Atlantic?

been out in Japan now for a good minute, Iím still undecided on the sizing and think I might be somewhere between 1/2 size down and true to size...

My 1/2 size down pair fit great at first, but months later they're snug enough to make me question whether I got the right size. They work with thin socks though. Someone wrote that they run a quarter size big and that person is spot on. I've just come to accept that I will forever be in between sizes in anything hip... Good luck and maybe go TTS if you like thick socks and dislike ingrown toenails.

damn, this is really making me rethink my size now.  Dare I go to an actual shop and see if they have any to try on?!

i struggle with this as well and this is somewhat useful info, since my local doesn't carry half a size down from my true size. but hopefully i can try these on once they drop and see if tts isn't too loose. not sure if we are talking about the canvas ones here, but in my experience canvas shoes don't blow out as much as suede, so i guess that limits a bit how well they wear in compared to a snug fitting suede shoe bagging out.

I mean, you guys all seem like you're familiar but is the size chart on their website not that useful? Kind of glad I haven't gotten a pair yet but Im getting pretty thirsty

I've skate two pairs now and they hold up very well except for the sole. Both pairs of mine had balded out on each shoe right under the ball of my foot. With that aside, I think they're great and if they fixed this problem I probably would skate Last Resort exclusively.

I also have a Little problem with sizing. 11.5 was snug, thought it was perfect at first but after having Them on at home for a Day i realised that i cant really move My toes around. Got a 12 instead which fits nice with a extra insole, but Still a Little play at Times.

For you who went half a size down, Do they stretch a Little after Broken in?

it's only of so much use, since it only accounts for footlength and not width, also it seems like last resort shoes sit somewhere between everything fitwise, there were a couple comments like "tts is a bit too loose or feels like i need to double up on socks, but half size down fits too snug." v002 apparently fits a bit different than v001.

from what i gather most people get half a size down, some tts, and a very few had to go a whole size down. to me it sounds they fit like cons chucks or one stars.

Same here, the upper is holding on perfectly and I've been skating a pair for almost over a month.

The sole is giving up now, but tbh it's a lot better than Vans. I've tried a new pair of Vans the other day and they were just hurting my feet terribly, then skated the next day with my beaten up Last Resort's and they felt much much better.

Can't wait to try the green canvas ones.
The '80s were the worst period. You had these horrible pop bands growing their hair and calling themselves metal.

Iím a month deep into my first pair and theyíre still skating so well. Donít see myself skating anything else for the foreseeable future. At first the price was off putting (still hefty IMO) but I think in the long run Iím saving loot because they donít blow out after a few sessions. They look good, feel good, perform super well, and are owned by a skateboarder, so itís a no brainer for me.

Mentioned this before, but damn it bums me out to hear that the soles on these are the first thing to go.
I know we aren't madness shaming in the gear section, come on were better than this.

Anyone know what time the drop is today?  I called a shop that carries them yesterday, and they say they haven't received their shipment yet, didn't know when they would.  So...  Maybe I'll just try and get them off the site?  Shipping's a little high, but oh well I guess.  Anyway...

If anyone knows what time they drop, I'd love to have that info.

Hm, not sure. I'm going to guess 11 EST as per usual? Never bought them off the site the day of a drop before.

Haven't skated mine, just been walking around in them and they're easily some of the most comfortable shoes I've owned. I wear a 10.5 and the fit is spot on for me. Have the black suede lows from drop 2.
