    Not great skate shoes... yet
    by n/a (Verified Buyer)

    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.

    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.

    These are undoubtedly the most comfortable skate shoes i have ever worn. I was very impressed with how well they skate and i don't feel they require any breaking in. They offer adequate flexibility as well as the most comfortable and supportive insole of any skate shoe I've worn. I will be recommending these to any friends of mine who are in need of new skate shoes!
