Between the 440 His and that new Westgate shoe, NB is really doing things right. I almost wish I didn't have so many shoes stocked up so I could finally try a pair...

Will this mean the end of the 913? Honestly, one of my favorite shoes I've skated in recent years. The thing will not break down.

These look like a slimmed down 533 in my eyes, maybe it's the 288 sole being more contoured that's throwing me?

They used that 288 sole, Westgate has a ton of footage with the 288 and seems to love it.
The upper seems like a mix of 533 and 306 pannels.
Too bad there is so much mesh exposed in the collar, which will probably lead to fast destruction by heelflippers

That’s what the main problem with the OG 533’s. The heel collar would blow up quick and the foam would come off. Sometimes I has to duct tape it or try to glue the seams back in. I wouldn’t take our the foam since if I did, I would have no padding at all.

It was just a hassle to deal with it. Obviously fixed with the 533 V2.

Same story for me, and this is what prevents me from trying the 440s because almost all colorways have mesh on the collar

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?

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.

Here ya go!

All I could ask for and more with that gum outsole, thanks for the screenshot dude!

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?
[close]

pretty sure these are the ones you’re talking about, they’re coming out next month on skate shop day and are gonna be limited so gotta get them quick

FYI- those Skate Shop Shoe Day shoes are legit limited, not just "limited" for the sake of saying that.  We put them in maybe 60-70 doors across the US and it's in-store only.  No NB.com direct sales or anything like that.  The idea was to get people to shop directly at shops for this product.

Ah shit, no Canadian shops are receiving them? Bummer if true.

I do have this shoe slated for Canada so there is a limited quantity making it up north.

Roth why no 440 colourways ever make it to New Zealand? (you may not know but it's worth a try). Love that shoe but hard to find. Also so glad the 288 sole is back.
They laughed when I told my friends that I was going to be a comedian.....well they are not laughing now!

Hopefully not, it makes sense at least to me to have a more tech shoe and a "simpler" one. But why do I care? We can't find NB# here </3

Anyone else have probs with the 212? The front and outermost eyelets absolutely eat shoelaces. I don't normally break laces and I went through 3 in the first couple sessions. I do not find the soles to be very comfortable. Outside of these issues, they are generally a decent, lightweight shoe - but I don't think I would buy them again.

I wrote a review on the New Balance site but it didn't get published.

Really hoping these don't have the inside ankle cushioning that the 440s and all coasts 574 have. I don't know what it is about it, but I absolutely can't stand it on a shoe and it prevented me from sending it on both of those. Should these not have that, I will most definitely be interested.

I personally like the shoe more when the lowest lace breaks and gives my toes a bit more room.  But a little shoe goo on the lace before you skate them will prevent the break from happening.

I love the 212 and yes it costs laces but whatever. I just found some on sale with the rubber toe cap- that was my favorite version. Black and white also. Although, that new color way looks lovely. Anyway, 212 with a Remind Medic insole and that's my shoe when I'm not too tempted by halfcabs and rowans.

Must be soon, a couple of my local shops had them in the online store for about 24 hours then took them down. I'm assuming NB forgot to tell retailers not to release them until x date, locally NB Numeric is not handled well in my experience.

Apparently they're already released in Denmark? Click the link for some more pics and info

I don’t know how I feel about the exposed foam tongue on them. Doesn’t look good, like on the blazers and stuff.

Other than that, great looking shoe and toe area.
