Anyone know if the fit is different from 440 HI to 440 Low? Thanks
[close]

I wear a 9 in both and they both feel fine!
[close]

Thx, is there less heel movement in the Hi?
[close]

Honestly I think the lows felt more snug than the highs with less movement. Didn't notice significant heel movement in either shoe, though.

I noticed the same and swear the high are more flexible all around, maybe even in the sole. My lows also lasted longer

Hey pals, I never ever wore some New Balance in my life before. What is the consensus on the sizing?

Most Lakai's in 7.5 fit me. Adidas, Emerica, Etnies and Vans in 7.5 are a bit too big. Never wore Nike either and don't want to, to be honest.

Which shoe should I try? Cupsole or Vulc would both be nice but I need some ankle padding.

Thanks in advance.

I’d go with a TTS 440 high, new balance’s cupsoles really are the shining light of the brand for me, everyone can make a good vulc, it’s tough to make a good cupsole, and they have several. Welcome to the fold

I have skated 5 pairs of the NM255 shoes over the last few years. Best fitting shoes for my feet by far! I went to my local to check out a new pair and saw that they removed the tongue centering straps. It was a black/gum/pink color way. That is one of the features that makes that shoe fit me so well. Are all NM225s sans tongue straps now?

272s arrived today, same size as my 255s (10.5).

They're an actual half size to a full size too big (same issues I have with NB# cupsole sizing); I can also feel it in the width, as I am swimming a bit and get heel slip.

They feel very different in the heel counter compared to the 255s, which have a straight heel counter/profile to them, the back/heel of the 255s is very straight, like this:   |

Whereas, the 272s have a curved heel counter or 'pocket' (much like  a runner) so instead of being: __|   it's more like:   __)

Essentially, my heel sits further back in the shoe due to the curvature of the heel counter. I think a half-size down to my normal size, with the curved heel counter would fit fine.



Hoping I can swap them, for a 10. Either that or it's a straight return and I stick to 255s.

I did find some cheap 255s, not may favorite colorway, but plenty of the 'average' sizes. Could ice them for spring use.

Yes. Pulaski Park inspired. So it’s for the marble ground.

The New Balance web shop appears to be a bit messed up again and it’s showing me a bunch of shoes that are not actually available and that lead nowhere when clicked, like Arto 358s which I imagine we won’t ever see again. But I don’t recall seeing this Tiago colorway before, has it been covered?

take what small comfort there may be left
seize what you love and damn all the rest

That Tiago colorway is new for this season. If you’re accidentally seeing them, I’m guessing they might have gotten them off the docks now and getting ready to put them online.

I got myself a pair of 574s to skate with. All in all I really like the shoe, as I have a wider foot. Not much of a break in period, the board feel is quite good for a cupsole, but the mesh on top is shit. Took me 2-3 hours to get a hole in there. I just glued a piece of suede in the shoe and hope it works. Are there any other New Balance shoes that could do it for me, that are somewhat better for longevity? Maybe 508 or 288?

Seems like it, but they still skate fine. Except for the mesh obviously. My bad i guess. One thing they definitely got right is lace placement. I can rip laces on Busenitz within 20mins. Nothing on these yet.

They make a 574 with a non "runner" sole. More of a flat skate/lifestyle  sole.

Stuff like this that isn't NB# is usually called All Coasts. Somewhat of a lifestyle/skate-inspired line that is different than NB and NB#.

Yeah you are right, the thing is, these shoes are great to skate in, just the mesh on the toe box makes them somewhat unusable and that’s a shame. That’s why I asked if there are shoes comparable but more made for skating and durable.

No shame, stocked up on these. I have come to terms with the fact that nothing fits my feet as well as 440s

The 1010 will continue to be produced. My opinion, 2022 colorways are definitely the best ones yet.

this is great news. all the color ways from this year other than the brown/black have been nice but not up my alley enough for the cash, hoping next years come through.
