Damn Cockroaches. They look amazing. Great pick up man. I'm jealous as ****. 
Thanks man! Yea they are quite amazing. Love the materials used on this shoe and the shape is just perfect :smile:

Good. Now I don't have to rob your house. :smile:
Lol that's good to know :tongue:

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, alongside my kennedys, these and the nazar eye are grails for me. Man, I think I'm just gonna wait for heads to get out of the game before I buy them as I can't find them anywhere
Good luck with your search :smile: These were quite hard to find since they're only limited to 120 pairs I believe

Quick question Fam, what width do you choose when getting your pair for custom 574?
I ordered my custom with D as the width but i find it still a bit wide compared to some of the customs on here.

I am thinking of choosing a B (narrow) which is design for women but I am not sure about the correct sizing. What is the correct Women size that I should choose if I wear a 9 US?

Appreciate all your kind inputs.

fo****zles, women's sizing is usually 1.5cm, or 1.5 sizes, smaller than men's. so if you need a 9.0, you should be looking at comfortably wearing a women's 10.5. however if you're going down a width, it might be best to go up a size and try a women's 11. i wear a true 9.5 in air max's and find that a women's 11, which is the same length as a men's 9.5, is too snug because of the reduced width. hopefully that helps.

I personally just stick to the normal D width and they feel just like all the other 574s i own

and eeBS is right, its 1.5 up in size, so if youre a 10, its 11.5 in womens

Thank you for both your inputs and repped.

Unfortunately, I need a 10.5 in Womens in this case but NB does not offer this size, only 10 or 11 Womens.
I will try to post a pic of my pair. I feel like the toebox is really wide. Is it possible that NB mark the box as D but the shoe they made was incorrect and was actually a 2E in width?

Is there any way for me to check this?
I just asked a friend of mine to hook it up from US and I don't want to cause any more trouble to him like returning the pair.

TIA!

So what's the consensus on the fit of 996s? They seem like they'd be a tad narrow in the toebox just from looking at them. I feel like I need to swoop on a pair of Purples and Royals before they're gone.

Btw, I have a semi wide foot. Not necessarily 2E wide, but I usually half-size up in every Air Max and some NB (998s).

I was pondering the same thing until 20 min ago. The royals dropped from $104 to $90 on Zappos, so I copped. Really no other royal based NB's out there like them.

Get 'em before they're gone man.

Oh and I agree with BSox, I have the denim blue 996's and the reds. They fit TTS
