Sock like fitting skate shoe with great look

I have skateboarded and snowskated in these shoes for few weeks now. These shoes have the perfect vulcanized flick but do not lose their grip so fast. The Ortholite insole is surprisingly comfortable as I am used to them from my Nitro snowboarding boots. Compared to Adidas and Etnies I found these shoes to be more of true perfect fit and for New Balance shoes just a bit more wide than some other models I have tried from them. I have somewhat wide foot any way. The heel has a good grip for heelflips because of the vulcanized part. My opinion for impact protection: 3.5/5.0.
I chose the shoes for the colourway and look and I have enjoyed them skating quite a lot. My only problem is that they are somewhat expensive, but this is due to their more tech vulcanized construction that is a try of having the best of a vulcanized shoe and a cupsole shoe.
