Classic style and supreme comfort, with tech features fit for a king. The suede vamp and reinforced toe offer great durability, and the seamless one piece bootie liner provides a locked in feel and a comfortable fit. Butter smooth sidewalls give you a consistent flick and the auxetic midsole design helps disperse pressure evenly with every step.
- Auxetic Midsole Design
- Decreased Rubber in Outsole
- Bootie Construction
- One Piece Toe Box
Cupsole - Durable and shock-absorbing to provide the best impact protection against hard landings. Cupsoles generally last longer than a vulcanized sole but don't provide as much flexibility and board feel right out of the box.
Auxetic Midsole Design - The midsole is designed with geometric shapes that expand and contract in all directions, allowing equal pressure dispersal throughout each step, and giving added flexibility.
Decreased Rubber in Outsole - Less rubber means less weight, and this outsole also happens to feature a skate specific tread pattern for more flexibility and traction.
Bootie Construction - For all day comfort; a 1-piece bootie designed for a close second-skin-like fit.
One Piece Toe Box - This design offers improved durability by removing seams, each seam offers a weakness in that the threads holding together the fabric are invariably weaker than the fabric that is attached. Without the seams you're able to skate your shoes longer.
Need to break in a bit. I am a standard 10, but may have needed 10 1/2 in these.
I noticed that the leather is a little thin so I made a suede patch and put it on the toe cap just to add extra durability.
The heel support is not there, I bruised my heel lol
The worst part of this shoe is a terrible sole. This sole is the fastest wearing sole I've ever had on a shoe so far. I have to shoegoo the soles.
But all in all I really enjoy this shoe.
