Ordered a pair of Last Resort AB lows (black/white) that're supposed to show up this week.

The Shortyís Muska decks have landed to local shops now, and I kinda want one to either put on the wall or set up later. No one had the red one (maybe gone already) which based on the other sizes would have been 8.375? Could go with the green 8.5, but the thing is these fuckers are 85Ä ($103) which is way more than even the ĒpremiumĒ prices brands like FA/917/Quasi and the like.

So does any one know of the shape or woodshop? Havenít seen them pop up in the setup thread much.

I canít speak for the bigger sizes but I bought a 7.75 for some reason and it was really flat. Not sure if the bigger ones are the same

Asked the same question week ago and some fine gentleman said it was from Prime, made me not buy it due to the price and wood being not up to par

I thought Prime were all very flat, but I could be wrong.

That would be in the woodshop thread, which has more info:

I know this is old, but it seems like the connection between them has held.

Probably overkill, but I realised I hadn't been looking at the right Prime account, the other one being the woodshop, this one being the Distibution chanel for their brands, so just in case others are wanting to see it too - their most recent post (still old I know).

I got some for my girlfriend and I.
Weird sizing.

I wear 12 in everything. Vans, Adidas, New Balance, Nike (except with a pair of Air Max 90 I had to get 12.5)

She wears 6 in everything

The size 12 are too big for me.
Didnít have the opportunity to try 11.5.
I have a skinny foot I guess.

The 6ís are too small for her.

If I donít lace them up really tight I can fit 2 fingers behind my heel and my feet slide around. This makes the laces look really long.

They are comfortable and feel quality but because of the size I probably wonít skate in them.

yeah, i would say similar to cons CTAS sizing. half size down. some people maybe go a full down for those?
I tried on a pair of CTAS his and Last Resort back to back one on each foot, and the toe space felt similar as well as fit overall

LR AB just look like cheap versions of Cons. *yawn*
I'm not feeling em at all.
Hope people are liking em though! The colorways are the opposite of horrendous, so that's a major plus for those interested in them.

I wonder if they'll ever do a cupsole I may be interested in that if they ever make one.

I am thinking if you were not in the shop or online within five minutes of them posting it, then most likely they are gone, or will end up on some collector sites or ebay for considerably more than what they bought them for.

Check the comments on that Old Skull post.

Same with these decks, gone in a minute and everyone wants one, as per comments.

If you were contemplating buying, you are already too late.

That's pretty good that someone actually has a limit on them - one per order.

chocolate skidul shape and the business and co 8.49/31.75/14 look to be all thats available. their 8.5 shape might also have the same wb but dont quote me on that.

vintage trucks are cool but im avoiding falling for gear i cant get again like the plague. seen enough pals here starving for a brown bomber that has no guarantee of returning.
