Hey,

Looking for a deal up in Canada, and found this. does it seem too good to be true?

Thoughts?

Thanks

Canada Bros...I would hesitate before ordering anything from this site.  Just a heads up that it seems less than legit from checking out what they're showing stock in.

Not the answer I was hoping for, but thanks!!!

Hey, while I got you on the phone, 440's fit like a 288/288s?

Thanks!

Wish it was legit for you to get some deals but it sure looks like a fraud to me.
I wear the same exact size in 288S and 440 (11.5) so for me, they fit the same.

The chiller version of the 379 looks intriguing

I could not figure out what that model was.. thank you sir. I'm super interested in those but maybe in a more palatable colourway. I'm boring and only wear mostly white or black shoes

Little jump of the gun from some shops dudes...apologies.  You'll have to wait for the launch on Nov 9.

white outsole -> would have bought

corduroy on those joints is neat

Couldn't go white and not have the red "bleed" onto the white rubber. One of those behind the scenes decisions..."which part is more important"?? We decided the blood red corduroy was a must, so we had to go with black foxing tape...
Get litty.....

@rothdigga or @mini greek can either of you confirm if these are all synthetic?  these black ones *look* like they're all synth in the super zoom, whereas the forest green ones are obviously real suede.

Sadly, that shoe has a suede backer on it so it's not fully synthetic.  I just checked with the crew.

I apologize I have no clue what the model names and numbers are.  But the bottom right white shoe.  That shoe existed years before the skate program was accounced.    I bought it as a "basketball" shoe when looking for a "non-skate shoe" that just looked good for skating.   Anyone know the story behind that shoe?

212/213 is the new balance "court". They still make them, in fact if you don't mind weird patterns they're on sale for $30 at Joe's new balance outlet right now. The zebra ones look less terrible than the others.

If anyone has a code or a good deal on a pair of sturdy cupsoles (440 or something similar, also interested in the 288s and 533) for under $60 let me know. Size 11/11.5.

Also what's the deal with the "all coasts" thing? Is it different from numeric somehow?

Those are the non-skate 210, not the 212.  They don't have the extra suede ollie patch.  I love the 212s, they are the only shoe that I do not have to shoe goo.
