Created by Polar Skate Co. Founder Pontus Alv, the VM001 skate shoe by Last Resort AB, features a suede upper with a canvas lining and double stitching around the lace stay for added durability against grip tape friction. Displaying a low-profile look, this shoe also features a lightly padded polyurethane collar and grippy stable sole that won't collect gravel. The VM001 is Last Resort AB's first shoe made solely with skateboarding in mind.

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.
Lo's fit great and don't wear nearly as fast as I'd expected, but there is almost no heel protection. Sole wore fastest of anything, and thats really my biggest gripe. The Grip on sole is very shallow "to not collect gravel", but I think I'd rather have that depth as I've worn the sole on toe portion after 6 very mellow sessions.
Hi's were pretty much same story, but did like on foot look of Hi's better than Lo's.
Shoe skates well, is true to size, and had small break in period, but not worth the $90+ price tag IMO.
