one of my go to skate shoes
af Herman, Blue Tomato Shop Oslo, Blue Tomato, 8. jul. 2022
i bought these shoes because I see skaters everywhere wearing Nike SB Blazers and i wanted to find out if it's just hype or that they are actually as good as they seem.
These shoes are a bit slim, so if you have a narrow foot i recommend you to go up to half a size - 1 than what you usually wear.
A couple of things caught my attention when skating the shoes.
1. the board feel is fantastic
2. the flick is nice
3. the high top makes my ankle feel nice and secure
That's the main thing I like about these shoes, but there are things that I don't like about them also.
Taking the shoes on and off is a hassle, especially when they are brand new.
Skating these shoes in the summer and working in them all day makes my feet super sweaty and uncomfortable because there's little to no ventilation in the shoes. All suade high top shoes are not a good shoes to skate in the summertime I noticed.
i got a hole in my ollie spot quite fast.
I'm sure I'm gonna buy another pair of these shoes because the pros outweigh the cons, in my opinion. I recommend them if you like high top vulc shoes with great board, but you might have to go up a size since it's a narrow shoe.
