I bought these shoes because I have been looking for a solid cupsole skate shoe wasn't too bulky, nor too flimsy. This is the perfect happy medium, and the Thermoplastic Rubber "toe cap" adds at least another week or two of life to the shoe. withstands abuse, has a nice foam midsole, and an equally nice insole made of a softer version of the same etnies "sti evolution" foam. Great impact absorption.
I was skating some vulcanized vans for a few weeks before these, and my feet would be sore after every session. With these, its usually everything but my feet that gets sore. The exception is if I land primo one too many times. and even then, it's a dull throb.
The overall looks of the shoe are absolutely wonderful, they look really nice with any fit of jeans, though my preference is some cuffed slim fit jeans. They just give you that classic skate shoe look and feel, but with a more modern take.
If I have any advice to give to anyone buying these specifically for skating, the grip at first is not the best, it takes probably a good half hour to an hour of skating to get the grip to be optimal, but that's to be expected of a traditional cupsole shoe, as they start out a bit stiff, so they don't conform to the contours of the board very well until you soften them up a bit.
These are probably going to be the only skate shoes I buy until they stop making them. Would recommend them to everyone even considering. Just buy them. They're a steal right now.
Pros: This shoe is great with impact and do not blow out on you after a week or so of jumping down gaps. The top of the shoe lest a good amount of time but I think that the toe cap looks a lot stronger then it really is.
Cons: This show take forever to break in..... I am not a fan of shoes that take more then a few days to break in. It seems like this shoe took 2 weeks to break in.... But once they break in they feel amazing! The number one con to this shoe is it loosing its grip. This shoes looks so strong but its not really as strong as it looks...
Over all its a great shoe that allows you to jump down gaps with no worries and it also allows you to get tech once they break in.
**Update** Got the half size larger. The toe room is great now but still fit really narrow when you fist try them on, like it's squeezing the sides of your feet. I kept them on for a few hours and they seemed better. After skating in them for a half day they feel much better now.
It's clear you HAVE to break them in to get them to feel comfortable at all. The construction is top notch though still no sign of even the slightest wear where you normally get those Olie holes.
First of all, they are so comfortable straight out of the box. They feel like wearing a cloud. Secondly they seem to be excellent quality and very durable. I've ad them about a week and skated with them 3-4 times, and I don't see ANY sign of wear yet. That's pretty impressive.
I highly recommend these shoes, and I will update my review in a few weeks/months, depending on how long it takes to even notice that they are wearing.
I also recommend checking out some Youtube reviews for yourself, especially Braille Skateboarding. They have a couple videos on these.
