Looks very similar to the previous version of the New Balance plate shoe.

:ranton:Smitty makes me chuckle.  They take everyone else's gear and put their logo on it, then go right out charge the same amount as the original product.  See Smitty F3 mask, Smitty Douglas CP, Smitty New Balance shoes, etc. If you're going to rip off partner with others, then at least offer us a deal for your product.  If not, why wouldn't I just use F3, Douglas, NB instead? I get the marketing thing, but there is no reason for me to buy anything with a Smitty logo when I can buy the "real" version for the same money.   :2cents::rantoff:

Kudos to Smitty for stepping up and hopefully filling a void left by Reebok's departure. Another option out there.

It’s just a NB shoe with a smitty logo. It’s not really another option

I'm sure they found the Chinese building that built them, and cut a deal to fire up the line.

Yeah, the 450 was real leather, a steel toe, and the best sole for releasing mud IMO. Probably not cost effective to bring back.

Pretty much what I was thinking. Also, who know if the factory still has the molds and specs for the 450s. Those things came out at least 15 years ago.
