These shoes will keep you comfortable whether you're lounging poolside or jumping down double sets. Boasting an elastic tongue for easy on and off, they also feature a grippy vulcanized outsole which provides that precise board feel you crave. The fabled Adidas stripes on both sides handles the style side of the equation and ensures that these versatile slip-ons are a viable contestant for the title of summer staple.

Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. These don't provide as much foot protection as cupsoles, but they are preferred if you’re looking for good board feel in a shoe with less weight and bulk.
EVA Sockliner - Similar to the PU sockliner, the EVA sockliner hugs your foot, adding much needed cushioning and support.
One Piece Toe - Having the toe box made of one piece means there are no crucial seams to tear which translates to the durability and longevity of your shoes.
In terms of overall fit, comfort and performance: They're surprisingly agile. I found myself in a running situation (wasn't my fault but I'm not going down like no punk!) Anyhow, they were great to run in and didn't put any stress on my feet.
The break in time was only 2-3 days for constant wear. Frankly, I regret not stocking up on this style, seeing how difficult it is to find these. If you can find them...buy them! Maybe Adidas will take the hint and begin making more cool slip-on styles.
