Ouch!  Ya'll are savage.  He colored them up after his panther graphic so I'm going to need you to direct any hate directly to Jim Phillips and Natas himself...

I love natas, mad respect for him and his contributions to skateboarding.

But there's no way I'm buying that colorway.

It looks like a green underlay on those natas joints. Might look much better once skated. Maybe cut it the label off the tongue and switch the laces. Might try a pair when they go on clearance.

Been skating, walking a couple miles a day, and working construction 5 days/wk in the same pair of 1010s for a while now. These are good shoes

kinda speaks to Natas’ legend that his name can actually have me entertaining an abomination like those.

also, if we’re rewarded with new Natas footage for their release, I’m gonna have to compensate New Balance somehow.

Wow, I love the Natas 480. I came here expecting massive hype, but all you boring black/grey vanilla types are hating.

Ah well, means I’ll have no trouble getting a pair.
Do you get deja vu, huh?

Haha. I don't love them, but might grab a pair. Think they'll look better once skated.

Plain colored shoes go with more outfits. Sometimes you don't want to stick out. And while I do like them, the average person would probably think they're gaudy. Boring can be good.

I feel that.

I think because my skate shoe rotation is so vast, and tailored to any possible outfit I view things from a different lens. If someone was a “1 shoe at a time” type, I can see opting out on those.

But…. I actually like the Osiris shoe as well, so maybe I’m irredeemable.  ;D

I see the wear away edging and…. is it the turquoise from the sole stitching?

REAL hard pass. Awful. Natas’ name ain’t gonna get me to buy that.

Usually the shop colabs are pretty regional so that one won't end up in EMEA, sorry!

Jsut saw that Natas short piece (way too short) and those 480 looks dope on feet. Need them.
Sir, I'm going to politely, but firmly, ask you and your common sense to leave this establishment.

YouTube one is longer than IG one. Still short though, and they do look good on feet.

Sorry about the double post. But Bluetile posted the Natas 480's on IG. They come with green speckled (and black) laces. Think they'll look better than the yellow ones.

I don't think I've ever seen that monkey graphic before, but as a fan of monkeys I approve.
