I can get these halfcabs that I want in an 8 or a 9, but I wear an 8.5....


I never tried on halfcabs but I heard they run a little big, so do you think an 8would be cool?

they do run a little big. you should be fine with an 8.

the supreme half cabs they released a few months ago, i fit perfectly in size 10... however the bulletproofs i had to size up to 10.5 most likey due to padding... make sure its not padded and you should go with your true size (im 10 in dunks hi/low, 10.5 in sb lows)

Karmaloop sent me a size 9.5 womens...8 men.....arghhhhhhhh...and now they're out of stock sad.....i really liked these lake blue sad..

(I asked for a 9.5 men) hope they gimme some sort of exchange/refund...anyone from karma care to help?

btw, I think they do run a bit big...but I usually wear 9..but 9.5 for more space (comfort)..you should be fine with either 8 or 8.5..

just like any other vans depends on which type they are.

syndicate - half size small
vault - true
GR - half size big
supreme - true

sorry, let me be more specific:

the gr half cabs are the ones that run a little big (black, navy, baby blue, lake blue, pesto green, crown purple, etc etc).

for whatever reason (probably because of the special materials), syndicate half cab sizing seems to be inconsistent compared to the gr's. i normally fit into a size 7 gr half cab comfortably, but my size 8 hemps are extremely snug (almost even tight). then again, some of my other syndicate half cabs, which are a size 7.5, fit me perfectly. so i guess it really depends on the model when it comes to the syndicates.




edit: ^ itsmedeka has the right idea.

Well I'm going to be getting the 50.50 cabs what do you think those would fit like?? Would I still be safe with an 8?

For those that have no idea. The 50-50 cabs look nothing like the pictures on the Hypebeast main page in person. The true colors are revealed on the 5050 and Crooked Tongues site. It's not dark blue/dark grey that everyone is thinking, they're actually North Carolina blue and light grey and they look horrible. Just a heads up for you guys before you actually buy them.

5050/Crooked Tongues



Notice the difference?

yea i saw the diff between the original HB posting and what was on the 50/50 website... i do wish the grey was darker but i still like the colorway itself... bape posted his in the pickup section and it still doesnt look too shabby... i think its all due to lighting the the brushing of the suede (e.g. everyone confusing the new w)taps for purple in some pics)...

I already ordered a couple pairs for myself, so I figured i'd put this on blast:

They've got a whole size run of the baby blue half cabs on the vans online store.

it's just that nobody buys them because they're ugly.

I wear a 12 in SBs but in Half Cabs I wear an 11.5, which is standard for me for most Vans. Hope that helps.

If they're from the syndicate series I'd say go to an 11, and if they're just normal halfcabs I'd stay at 10.5. Some people on here are saying to go a halfsize down, however I'm always hesitant to do so when ordering online, esp since my feet are kinda on the wide side.

Seeing as you're in Toronto it's not like you couldn't just go downtown or to any skateshop and try them on for yourself. Problem solved.

Just grabbed a pair of the Syndicate Bulletproof Half Cabs. I'm a 10 in most low and high SB's, Air Max, Jordans, but a 10 in these was just a little too snug for my liking. A 10.5 in a few other shoes. Grabbed a 10.5 in these. A 10.25 probably would have been perfect but that's nitpicking. Just trying to give people here reading as good an idea as possible on fit.

On a side note, the package these come in is incredible...especially considering the price point. Slick high quality pull-out black box, with the shoes in a white cotton bag inside. Very nice.
