    Much better than Nike skate shoes

    New Balance Stratford 479 Skate Shoes - scarlet red/tonic yellow
    So I've skated in Nike SB's for quite some time now and always thought they were ok. Ok is not exactly what i want in a shoe. One day my girl buys me a pair of NB 479s because I've mentioned how i want to try them. Keep in mind I'm a NB junkie, i love sneakers and NB is at the top of my list. Long story short, probably the best skate shoe out right now. They grip your foot and are extremely comfortable. Nike, you have your work cut out for you

    As good as the Big Guys

    I thought the 479's were even better than the Nike Koston's. I thought they were very similar in feel to them in narrowness and boardfeel. They are pretty close to true sizing, but i could not tell if i should ride a 10 or 10.5. I have to wear thin or thick socks depending on the half sizing.

    I think they have sorted out their manufacturing processes in 2014. The Koston 2 SB's had soles that started to peel so don't be afraid of these thinking that SB's are more reliable.

    Not great skate shoes... yet

    New Balance Stratford 479 Skate Shoes - aviator blue/scarlet red
    I had been waiting for the Statford 479 shoes to come out for months ever since I learned of who the NB team was and saw how great the shoes looked. I received them and the sizing was a bit off. They seem to run about a half size small. Once broken in they fit fine and were comfortable. I'm a very casual skater, used to ride in my youth but now I'm lucky if I get on the board for an hour once every two weeks and I was unpleasantly surprised to see the toe blow out after about 3 sessions. The suede just completely wore out where it meets the rubber sole. I don't expect skate shoes to last forever but I've had just about every brand of skate shoe there is and I've never experienced a blow out this quickly. I chalk it up to NB being new to the skateworld so I'm not too surprised. They'll learn and get better over time. They look great though, and I've already bought a replacement pair strictly for casual use.

    New Balance Stratford 479 Skate Shoes - aviator blue/scarlet red
    The shoes look great, even better than they did in the online pics.

    I am disappointed as they feel more narrow and less cushiony/comfortable as comparable skate shoes.
