^ It's a skate shoe after all so obviously if you actually skate then they did nothing to a "perfect shoe".

On a side note, trolls really hurt my feelings, etc.

They just look like they weigh less. I'm not sure of that nylon though.

Steve picked the nylon so something about it is good. He was pretty involved in the production of these

Really? Hmm I guess so. But dammit I want see some hi tops of these, I think we all want some. Its a bit disappointing that last year nothing big was done to honor the half cab expect that Supreme release.
Regardless though I'll still check these out, the design just seems a bit different for Vans

You got you're Authentics in yet dude?

Yeah! That's an idea. A Full Cab Light. There was more done than just that, a Japanese (I think, maybe it was Chinese) Skate shop called Hkit did their own Half Cab called "The Last Dragon" and the Skate shop Primitive released their Half Cab along side an awesome cable-knit beanie. Then there's the Taka Half Cabs, MoFo's, and Dirty Donnie's which all released in honor of the 20th anniversary at GR retailers.

Yes I did, but I don't care much for the IFC-made rubber that they used for the waffle soles. Needless to say I won't be keeping any of them. I could snap a few pictures of them later if you really wanna see how they look. I'm very picky about soles, most people aren't, so they're not bad for the average collector.

I hope something like that happens. Full cabs are so classic. Ah yes I remember those now. The last dragon wasn't too bad, it sucked that it was only released in china. I think the MoFos and the one Steve Cab designed where probably the best designed half cabs. 

Thats kinda disappointing, I'm hoping the quality on the Syndicate line isn't going to go down this year. Might as well take some pics for the hell of it. Its understandable.

Hm pretty good stuff. Its a shame the soles aren't top notch. At least their rubbers are better than most of Nike's soles.

These are still great shoes if you don't skate or wear them much. I like to skate most the Vans I wear so these just don't float my boat.

I hear you. I just hate how shoe quality continues to spiral down. Converse, Nike, Adidas, Vans, etc. Its like they design them to wear out. 

On another note I got some Vans Diemme boots for $88, they just came in today. The quality is definitely there.

^ This REALLY depends on size man. I saw a pair sell on ebay for about $40 shipped.

@blakplague Yeah man it's planned that way. Nike's newer dunks suck SO MUCH for skating IMO.

@mesamune They're the Syndicate Authentic Chckerboard 69's, just dropped a couple weeks ago
