Size and fit
The NB All Coasts AM425 is available exclusively in men’s sizing. Given that skaters prefer a snug fit to be able to do their routines; however, many reviews state that the width measurement on this retro-inspired shoe seems too narrow. Many wearers recommend getting this half to a full size up when purchasing the footwear, depending on how wide one’s feet is.
It is best to go over the site’s reviews and recommendations to be able to find the right fit.
No matter the activity, the upper’s mesh-and-suede fusion gives ample ventilation for an odor-free foot.
