i thought the 1010s already had little anti-slip heel retainer things built-in?
[close]

Yeah those heel lock pods. They don't work very well for some people though. I think in general pods like that don't work particularly well for my foot. SB Dunk lows included. A nice normal collar fits me and many people much better

I feel like having those pods actually pushes your heel away from the heel cup instead securing them

For some reason, a lot of the heel lock pods built-in to the shoes seem to flatten out super quick for me.

Was mentioned a couple pages back but anyone gone from 440s to the 425s and notice a difference in the sole lasting any longer? 440s are my all time favorite shoe but for fucks sake do i wear through the sole under my big toe so fucking fast.

It's a shame the laces are so damn short on the 1010s. If you have Dunk laces, going to the top or adding that extra eyelet solves the issue!

new balance just took over the game man, with inflation causing even the cheap shoes like Lakai to reach the $100 mark it's hard to justify anything but the new balance shoes. Nike and Adidas are all talk, they haven't really put tech worth the price in a decade but these new balances are teched out yo

Maybe not the best examples but Nike ishods and nyjahs are $150, Adidas tyshawns $150, but new balance tiagos are $200 in Aus. Nb might have the better tech but you still pay for it down here. (Altho their other shoes range from$120-$160)

Itís true, the tiagos are really good. Iím dealing with some ankle shot, and these shoes really help out. I was a little worried about the shape of the toe at first,  but I got used to the flick pretty much immediately. Iím hoping the next Tiago shoe has as much cushion in it.

Hi guys I'm thinking about getting the 440 hi Tom knox colorway but I'm not really sure how those fit. I have seen that they fit big or TTS. I usually get size 10 in all shoes and the only shoe I half size down is the Chuck 70. What size should I get?

Thanks!

Donít listen to me, but I get a full size down in the highs and throw a thinner insole in these days.

does anyone know if we will be getting these in canada? Im assuming these are new because we still haven't got the Olive / Camo / Orange colourway here either as far as I can tell.


Those are for sure coming to Canada. The ports up there are even worse than the US right now.  Iím showing June delivery of these up there.

Does anyone here know if we can ever expect to see another run of the 913s, the original Brandon Westgate shoe? It is my favorite skate shoe I've used before, and I have two pairs on ice. Just wondering if I should be making a more concerted effort to obtain any other stray pairs I can find before they're gone forever.
You can expect to see the 913 again surface this year sometime in the Fall.  We will probably bring it back 1 time a year so make sure you stock up when they hit!

I would say 0.5 up actually, but that's my personal relationship with NB#, almost all their shoes run small for me. 1010, 533[v1 & v2], 440, 440Hi, 288, etc.

Do you ever have to 0.5 up in cupsole models? If so, 0.5 u. If not, TTS, but do not size down. If you don't have super thin/narrow feet, TTS is probably best. If you go 0.5 up and it's a lil roomy, swap to a better insole (which it really needs tbh).

I've never had to. The last couple of cupsoles I skated were the OG Booz, Campus ADV and Marana and all were size 10(TTS)and the fit was great. I was thinking buying a pair of FP insoles, maybe the 5mm but I don't think I should size up right? I saw that the insole sucks and it gets all mushed upfront.

Also, thanks to @allen. and @uesty. A full size down would murder my feet haha

TTS should be fine then!
Usually , if others 0.5 up on the Marana (like I do), I've seen many also have to 0.5 up on NB# cups.

NB has to get their sizing together or at least like Converse they should tell you if you should size up or down. I don't even want to skate the 440,looks so clean and classic haha thank you

And you're paying upwards of $170-200 for some Vans like Half Cabs and Ave.

I found the Tiago hands down best value of those. Ishods were junk. Tyshawns not bad.

Yeah vans prices now are kinda unreal. When the janoski came out I couldn't believe people bought them, you could get pretty much any two pairs of vans for the same price. now it's completely inverted. I think the westgate 913 have gone down in price (altho they don't come out very often) so maybe when the next big tech nb comes out the tiagos will go down in price also.

You can find the 1010s on sale sometimes which is nice. I got my last 2 pairs for around 110 which is great imo. They are such a clean show and hold up really well!
