Vans Sk8-Hi Pro Skate Shoes - (outdoor) dark military/tan
I've owned a few pairs of sk8-hi's and these don't disappoint. I really like the earth tone colorway. The tan looks like burlap/hemp which is a nice feature, but is also a really durable material. They're really comfortable but like all sk8-hi's they're even better broken in, plus they look better too when they're worn. As far as skating them, they're probably a bit bulky for technical/flat ground, but I can't say for sure. I skate more transition/bowl/street and they're great. Two things worth mentioning, first they're about 1/2" longer than most other sk8 Hi's, but they still fit the same. It's probably due to extra padding and insulation. Which brings up the second item. These shoes are warm and toasty for winter, but probably too warm for late spring through summer. So get 'em now!
