24 posts in this topic

Guys, ..

I took a chance because of the price, and , ...well, ....they don't fit. I need an 11.

So, here you go, ....brand new 450's I just tried on,.... size 10.5 (D)

$60 shipped ....

Email me @ jmetz66@yahoo.com

I figured I'd try here instead of sending back!

Jeff, what size do you normally wear?

If this is an attempt to ask why I didn't order a 1/2 size up, please don't.

I normally wear a 10.5, but decided at that price, it may be worth trying it out. Most say size up, but have had few say that their normal size fit them while only being a tad snug. For me, unwearable.

It was a stupid decision

I want to give someone from the brotherhood a chance instead of sending them back, but I want to try and turn this around pretty fast, so let me know if there's interest!

Thanks ;)

I was making sure the shoes wouldn't fit me. :)

Fair enough! :)

Sorry if there was tone in that response, ....I'm just so pi$$ed at myself! :tantrum:

Does anyone know if going to an EE helps the NB450s? I'm not even sure an 11 D will suit me!? I don't have a wide foot at all, but man, ....NBs are just funny! I'd love to pick off a pair for a spare but I don't want to screw up again! :shakehead:

I sized up and that was fine with me.

Come on guys...

No one wears a size 10 (and would need a 10.5 in this shoe), and is looking for a new or back-up pair of plates?

$60 shipped?

This will stay up over the weekend, then I'll just send them back....

The 450s were notorious for running a half size small in any width. Supposedly the new 460s actually run true to size.

OK, I lied, ....

One more day, after work they're leaving, by 4pm EST, they'll be shipped back for a refund.

Last chance for the brotherhood to have a brand new pair of 450's at $60 shipped

Thanks .... damn, ....would like a little white, ....and regardless of their upgrade, the 460 is far uglier than the 450 (IMHO)

      Slightly used (6 games) 3N2 plate shoes.  Like new condition.  Size 7, but fit more like 7.5 (reason I need to sell them)  
      $95 new - selling for $85 shipped to you

      Hey guys,
      I, like many of you, wear the New Balance plate shoes, but I seem to be having a problem with them and I wanted to know if any of you have experienced something similar. Last year I bought a brand new pair of shoes from Ump-Attire and I fell in love with them. Then after only 20 or so plate games the material that keeps the plate for the top of the foot connected to the rest of the shoe ripped up so the plate was flopping all over the place. I tried a few things to fix them, but they always ended up flopping around during a game (a bad look even if no one really noticed). I gave up and bought another pair and they worked great for the rest of the season. Flash forward to now and that pair of shoes has been through quite a bit of games over the past season and a half, but again, last night the material broke and I'm left with a flopping plate. I haven't beat up the shoes in any way besides wearing them and I haven't taken a ball to the foot in I can't remember how long. All I know is that every time they break it seems I'm working solo and having to run around a bit more than usual. Any ideas or should I just buy new shoes? I haven't seen Reebok shoes around (did they stop making plate shoes?) and I have a pair of 3N2's that I don't trust above little league.
      Thanks in advance,
      Stephen
