Rad.

When do the Samarria Brevard 213s hit the shelves? (sorry if this was already stated)
[close]

Should be by the end of March barring any port delays.  I know there's still a backlog of ships sitting out there but it's not as bad as it was a month ago.  It was taking 3+ weeks for them to offload a ship in January.

these 213s will be a full size run, yeah?  I'm just worried that since these are a female signature colorway you're gonna cut the sizing at mens 10 or some shit...
[close]
No way.  Full size run from 4-14.  A lot of shops jumped on them so hopefully your local will have some coming in.  I know the reps told me they sold a ton as soon as they put the word out.

RAD thank you!
2nd that!
@rothdigga did you say the 213s are the only shoes that donít fit you tts?

I find the 212s and 213s to fit TTS. I have wide 11.5 feet and have to go up to 12s on most shoes (All Vans Pros) but the 212/213s Size 11.5 fits me great.

I ordered a pair of 210 mids a couple months ago and went half size down based on the posts in this thread, but they were def too small.  I'd say go TTS.  I think maybe they're ever-so-slightly long, but not enough to adjust sizes.

Why yes, yes I do. Was a Blazer/Bruin dude until recently (mostly the leather ones) when I got the 440 low's and picked up the Tom Knox Hi on sale at everyone's favorite mall shop.

They're pretty damn close in terms of sole feel. The upper on the 440 flex a bit more since they're mesh. The outer part of sole on the Blazers flexes more my foot rolls more. This makes the shoe feel less stable. Both have a super thin insole. I'd say right now I prefer the 440. My feet don't hurt after sessions anymore.

I hope some of those 213's make it to Australia

Was looking at the team page since I heard PJ was gone, but was surprised to see Nisse and Cookie no longer there either (I'm probably missing some).  I'm kinda getting big corporate vibes I haven't felt with NB# before.

Picked up 508s after work and took em right to the park. So far so good! Iím a 10 and went a half size down at 9 1/2, with even a little wiggle room left. I definitely have a wider foot. These donít make the ďwide skate shoesĒ thread but theyíre not the worst things Iíve crammed my flippers into.

Pretty skateable straightaway. Definitely less stiff than my Tyshawns out of the gate. Good boardfeel too. One gripe maybe is one when you look in the shoe you can see the sides of the insoles like they were an afterthought, such that my foot found the edge of the insole a few times which was annoying. Only threw a few heelflips but didnít notice any collar fraying yet. Likewise none of my other tricks have found any exposed stitching which is a plus. They seem to vent as advertised too. I had a good sesh in some warm weather and my dogs stayed relatively cool

Definitely hoping to get a lot of longevity out of these, already looking forward to another pair in this tough cupsole market

I think the N with the black outline looks too much to that classic dad new balance for me.   Make it solid black

I'm with you on this. With summer coming up, these would need to be a truly skate only shoe with the dadness of them and I don't know if the money would be worth it.

Was going to say this. Alternatively, they're held on by one row of stitching, just remove it with a razorblade

These are the leather version with the gum. The white suede (white midsole) ones drop July/August.

Will get those instead.

I think y'all are tripping anyway, they look how they should. I fux with the dadness of them. A black N amongst an otherwise predominantly white shoe wouldn't look right to me. I'll probably skate these when they drop and then grab the white suede in six months, if they come to nz  ::)

White Tiagos have even heavier templeton vibes than the other colors, if you razored the N off youíre pretty damn close... personally I keep it on for the dad vibes but Iím old!

(If NB ever make a vegan version of this shoe, Iíd be happy to give them buckets of my hard earned)

Damn. I was going to grab a 9.5 since I wear that in everything. Should I go down half a size ?

I would say yes. Iím a 10 in DCs, Adidas, Nikes and eŚ. This was my first time trying on NB# but when I tried my regular size on it seemed noticeably larger and the half size down was perfect

Canada has them for sure.  Centre got their order pretty late so those are just now going out to shops I'm sure.  I would keep an eye on shops receiving them and I'm sure your local up there or whatever skate web store will have them in no time.

Awesome, thanks for the heads up. I was getting close to paying the shipping, currency conversion, duties, etc. to get them shipped in from the US.
