These are going strong after about 2 months. I might have to put some stronger insoles in them because theyíre starting to feel a little packed out.

you do many heelflips? I started doing them way more this year and had to switch from the normal 440s because the middle/back mesh would just tear up right away. Not sure if that materials different on the hi top

highly recommend supergluing the stitching in high wear areas before you skate them. makes them last forever.

I know I kinda blew it. I shoe gooíd them after a few skates but the shoe goo I have has became too thick and doesnít dry as hard anymore...hard to explain but it sucks. Then I was too lazy to get more glue. I like turtles.

I recommend using whatever is in that Crunch Vlasic Pickle Jar there on them.  I bet that will give them another month at minimum!

Gorilla glue makes a bottle with a lil brush that's perfect for this ;) These things passed the durability test imo of that is 2 months in. I'm hoping to put a hole in the sole before the leather!

Man we will see the sole is holding up pretty well the tread is just barely wearing out by the ball of my foot. Also took a page out of your book and stuck some insoles in from my Fastbreaks (Converse), so far, increased comfort.

Iíve been in a pair of 379 mids recently and they fit my wide feet perfectly. My true size is probably 12.5 but I typically have to just get 13 and deal with a little bit of extra length in order not to feel cramped due to the width or just because a 12.5 isnít available. These in 13 fit just right though. Theyíre like if someone corrected everything I dislike about Vansí fit.

I was holding out for the 440hi to go on sale but now it's just not even anywhere in my size. When does the next colorway come out?

I've come to be a pretty diehard NB fan when it comes to skate shoes. I need a replacement insole though, the stock ones in the 306s are murdering my feet. Anyone have a rec for insoles that fit well specifically in New Balances? I'm thinking about FP Gamechangers but idk how they fit and I don't wanna be out that much cash if they're a bust in the New Balances
I did the footprint medics in my 306ís and they were great and fit perfect. Put them in the 913ís and hated it. If your going to only skate the foys I say go for it

There's a white leather with green trim coming out next month or March. Jack Curtain previewed them a few months back on his Instagram.

Stoked to hear that, anyone have an image? I'd buy the 440 high again and again as long as NB comes with that buttery full grain and tough-yet-flexible mesh upper again.
Ah good day, to youse

They were originally slated for 2/1 but have been pushed back to around 3/1.  Sorry, there are massive shipping delays going on worldwide due to covid so all of 2021 is going to be a struggle to stay on schedule for almost any brand right now.

Oh man those 440 his look so nice. Will consider when they drop in March.

@rothdigga I saw a leak of the regular 440s in all white with a gum sole, can you provide any deets on when that's coming out?

I just ordered the last pair of 10ís off Parade (they reappeared) so Iíll be held over until March. Itís crazy to think that we are able to get anything new with covid, so Iíll count my lucky stars.
