I know the sizing questions are endless, but I知 wearing a 10.5 in the Tiago. Does anyone know if I should half size down for the 440s? Thanks

Am I right in thinking that the 440s run a little bit on the longer side, and you could 1/2 size down?

I do that, but it seems half the people here will go a half size up. A size 9.5 440 is the same length as a size 10 dunk though.

But this is because dunks tend to run slightly smaller, not because 440s run big.

I wear a 10 in both. The 440 is a very snug shoe, so I can't see anyone needing to size down.

Agreed. I wouldn't size down. 440 toebox height gets narrow, although the toe does seem a bit long, barely though. Breaks in great, I'd get same size.

Thanks for all the info on the sizing everyone. I値l go same size. The Tiago length is perfect but I personally find the toe box a bit too wide. So hopefully the 440 is tighter🙌

it is a little bit tighter, in my experience, but still roomy enough. not a narrow shoe at all imo. you should be fine.

anyone knows when the brown-black 1010s will drop? seems like a good winter chiller.

Awesome, I wanted to know this too. I'm skating the white leather color-way and they rule, but I feel like the don't go with any of my pants. I know that sounds ridiculous but I feel like I can only wear them with sweats or shorts. I was skating them with a big pair of brown dickies and a flannel and I filmed something on my phone and I looked kind of silly. I usually look silly though; I'm tragically not cool looking. I wore them with wrangler jeans thinking it would give Tiago vibes but it gave me more of my wife's uncle John vibes. Just classic quintessential dad vibes.

Also I like skating a suede shoe better than a leather one.

White 1010s are a bold style statement. Might need to refresh you skate wardrobe from the ground up. Out with the dickies and flannels and in with sports casual.

I own lots of basketball jerseys and stuff like that but it's starting to get cold on the east coast. I'm not sure my pants options. They've looked off with couple pairs of my jeans and stuff.

I would just hit up a thrift store! That's what I did when I realized my highwaters looked crazy with the tiagos

I was going to hoard this and just clean it out myself, but I decided to save the last pair of 11 for someone else. $45 for black/black 913s on Amazon.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07VG2DRXK/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=A1M5EIC3PTHQ2U&psc=1

Make sure you select the black/black color and then in the size drop down at the bottom it has them listed as womens size/mens size for some reason, so like for the 11 I had to select womens 12.5/mens 11.

I already ordered two pairs and it's legit. They ship without the box (presumably to keep the cost down) so if you're trying to be one of those cool reseller dildos you're out of luck. Not sure if the shipping is free without amazon prime or not, but mine shipped same day from near cleveland and got to me next day. 

I've only skated them twice and I'm already prepared to say they're the best shoe I've ever skated.

Jeans would work, just two sizes up.

There were 4 pairs of the sz 11 left when I found it. I bought one pair, got them the next day, skated them the day after that, and then went back for seconds. The only reason I didn't clean them out is that I asked someone who I knew skated them what the durability was like. He sent me a picture of his that he skated for months and is still wearing to work every day so I figured I'm almost certainly going to get bored with them before I'm able to kill off two pairs.

So far I'm extremely impressed. I loved the 440s because they felt bulletproof, these are way lighter but still feel extremely secure. My heel is locked in place, there's padding where there needs to be, they're nice and wide (but not bulky) so they don't squeeze my caveman feet, the toe isn't too round or pointed, and they have a wonderful flick. I have yet to find any fault with them at all, although it's obviously very early and I'm sure my nitpicking ass will find something to whine about. Literally the only thing I'm not totally happy with is the insole - it's perfectly fine, but I usually like something thicker and softer with cupsoles so I might invest in some aftermarket ones or just swap over the cloudfoam ones I have in my 440s.

Your review is basically how I feel about 420s, pretty hard to fault any any area apart from the insoles. Also broke in right out of the box but never felt floppy

Can anyone comment on the sole durability of the 913? As in are they exceptionally durable? I've been wanting to try them badly but with the 440's I've skated I wore through them before my uppers were done. I'm specifically skating the elijah berle shoe now because they added more rubber on the bottom. So I know it's a me problem but was curious.
