Cushion on the inside and outside
od Fleur, Blue Tomato Shop Utrecht, Blue Tomato, 11. 3. 2020
The shoes are very comfortable. The Solarsoft sole (which you can take out if you prefer using your own insoles) have a lot of cushion in them, which makes skateboarding comfortable. At the same time, I still have a lot of boardfeel: the Solarsoft insoles still give me the right amount of boardfeel as I am doing my tricks: I can feel the concave very well. They give a lot of support while walking, cruising around and skateboarding. On the other side: they seem just as soft on the outside as they are on the inside. After a couple of ollies, I already started tearing the outside fabric apart. There is some suede on the outside, but the rest is canvas and you can absolutely see that after a couple of sessions on your board. The fabrics tear apart easily.
The Chron Solarsoft shoe from Nike SB is a very comfortable shoe and helps me with doing more impact skateboarding. They are not that durable though. You can put some ShoeGoo on the sides in advance to prevent them from tearing apart fast, but I like my shoes clean when I just bought them. On the other hand: the Chrons are cheaper than Janoski's for example, so you can see that back in the materials that they used. If you want comfort for a nice price, I would definitely recommend you to pick the Nike SB Chrons.
