no theyre not, theyre just suede vulcanized shoes. you can pick up some 2 pairs of good emericas for the price of one of those overpriced shoes.

I actually prefer them to Janoski's because they have much more room and are way more comfortable. The boardfeel is great too, maybe not as good as the Janoski, but I personally found the difference to be hardly noticeable. My only gripe is the traction on the waffle sole, but that's a general Vans thing.

nice, wish i could find a cheap pair an not the supreme ones ya know? And yeah that waffle sole is ass for skating sometimes but the pros and syndicates have better grip i feel. I was on janoskis for a bit i liked them alot, got some supra stacks vulcs for free so im skating those right now.

Emerica Hsu look great, but they aren't the most durable.

was skating janoskis fairly hard for about a month, and they are still usable to some extent. most shoes that break in good like that dont last but i was pleased with the durability. but i just got a new pair of lakai breas and they dont break in easy at all. i skated them today and could barely kick flip they were so stiff. not much board feel either.

the manchester's a great lakai shoe that doesn't need any breaking in. i think it has one of the best flick out of all the shoes on the market. a favorite for me.

So happy they are making the old school hi top Vans  http://www.spartoo.co.uk/Vans-SK8-HI-x57699.php
I guess I'm a bit of a poser for skating but they do look great, super comfortable

although not a skateboarding shoe exactly, i thought these were pretty interesting. http://www.thepremierstore.com/product_detail.cfm?CatID=8&PID=20576

I'm trying to cop these new lakai furas in red, i think they drop 1/15

Jan 07, 2014 @ 04:51
well after getting older and hurting my ankle over the years I prefer to skate mid tops for support but kostons skate good, janoskis, dunks are comfy but still not the best to skate IMO, lakai makes solid skate shoes and DC of course

Anyway, I would like to prefer always personalized skate shoe.
