@rothdigga what happened with pj and NB?

We had a good run man.  8 years is a long time in the skate world actually but ultimately people move on at some point.  He's the homie and I will always keep in touch with him.

These guys always seem to have shoes in stock before anyone else and for lower prices than anywhere else. Smells like a scam to me..

Anyone ever order from them successfully?

Not a Tom Knox pro shoe, obviously...

Just looked.  Japan did indeed buy into the NM255FRV so those should be at shops in Japan and online there anytime or maybe up now.  Give it a look.

does anyone feel like their scrape is restricted quite a bit in 440 his? after skating them for a bit I feel like even my ollies are worse because i'm not used to having to move my leg quite so much to get a good scrape. can't tell if this is a shoe style thing or a me thing.

Whatís the sizing on NB# like these days?

Last I checked a year and a half ago, all the cupsoles were running a half size small small.

Iím a textbook 12, but when I tried them on 12ís were too small and 13ís too big.  Since the universe decided there is no such thing as a 12.5 I was left out of the new balance party, which is a shame because they look like the best shoes goiní.

I'd say its true to size.

I wear a 10.5 in Nikes, Adidas and Vans. My 440 Highs are 10.5 and they fit great. I also heard rumours about weird sizing but ordering my usual size has not failed me yet with 2 pairs of NB and counting

Also on a more general note, I finally got my white 440 Highs today and I'm in love. Pics, wear test and other shit to follow if I get off my lazy ass and document it all.

one quick note: The gum sole is very squeaky on my laminate floor, different from my last pair of 440 lows but I 'aint mad

440 highs or Crockett highs? Both look sick but I can't afford both atm.

The Crockett has a bulkier toe and thicker sole. 440's are more flexible out of the box because of the mesh sides but also feel tighter and more formed to my foot with the shape of the upper and angle of the heel.

So maybe go Crocketts if you have wider feet and want a more classic skate shoe shape and go with the 440 if you're into a sporty or athletic shoe

Either way these are both amazing shoes

Diggin the 508's so far, having a much easier time breaking these in than 440s. Wish the toe cap was pointer like the 306. Overall though one of the best cupsoles I've tried from recent memory, likely sticking with these as my new go-to.

How wide are they compared to 440s?

probably shouldíve came on here first and asked the question, but I knew these were about to sell out in my size. Bought these 440 hiís today in my normal size (9) TTF? because Iíve never owned any new balance skate shoes.
This has me cracking up, what exactly does Black Flag have to do with measuring your dick starting behind ya nuts?

Skateboarding is nothing but a game to find the right fits to appear like you're a proportional human being instead of a midget or a giant.

they're likely to be a little roomy but should fit alright!

They fit TTS for me! Definitely one of my favorite shoes.

What’s the sizing on NB# like these days?

Last I checked a year and a half ago, all the cupsoles were running a half size small small.

I’m a textbook 12, but when I tried them on 12’s were too small and 13’s too big.  Since the universe decided there is no such thing as a 12.5 I was left out of the new balance party, which is a shame because they look like the best shoes goin’.

I've dipped into NB# twice, I wear a 10 in everything:

Westgate size 10 - too small
1010s in a 10 fucking massive, dropped to a 9.5 too tight (they are currently stretching in my closest in hopes I can salvage them) and but tight I feel the shoe has a very low toe box ceiling, especially the leather jawns; suede might be the right option for me in 9.5.

I REALLY want to try the Foy 306L (laceless) but I'm unsure what size to get....3rd time might be a charm (as I always feel slipons fit different). Anyone cop a pair yet?

Thanks I have wide forefoot and like the idea of thicker sole so I probably go with Crocketts.
