There is a piece of metal in the sole that probably bent.

i had a pair of Emerica Provost Slim or whatever, and the 3rd or 4th day wearing them the insole molded to the shape of the shoe's sole. So I felt the waffle pattern on the heel or whatever, it was unbearable.

whats the reasoning behing the metal in those dylans, stability?

This is forever ago, but I had a pair of those scuba steve colorway es's, and the last must have had a bad batch of glue on it because after a few sessions the last was peeling off and sole falling out.
only in skateboarding is putting an adult in a position where they might have to actually work for their income "ruining their life"  ::)

I remember having these old eS Accelerates when I was a kid and after one session they looked like this. When I went to my local skate shop he said that that model's first run were known for having shit glue.

had the sole come off almost in one piece on some lakais from around 2007.

on a pair of vans chukka lows the foxing on both shoes started to seperate all around after a few days of walking.

bought vans rowley reissues, again the sole would seperate itself from the shoe and it took like one session to blow a kickflip hole in them. the shoe would also look very disgusting after one skatesession, like i am sweating acid. i never had sweatstain problems with any shoe so far but these were forming crystals on the upper. threw them away after three sessions because they looked like they were months old and also felt like that. was very disappointed.

got the vans agah reissues and these also had the thing where the foxing tape would come off, although this time only on the bottom, so the shoe looked frayed out on the ground side.

i have worked in skateshops a couple of years and most defects were vans or nike sb. with nike there were a lot of janoskis that would rip at a flex point on the toebox, near where the sidepanel starts. this was when they started to make them cheaper and already omitted the leather laces. with vans you would sometimes have brand new but non fitting or mislabeled pairs. like the box said 8.5 and one shoe is actually 8.5 but the other one is clearly a 9 but labeled as an 8.5. or they just straight up put the wrong sizes in the box. although this would only happen with the mailorder stuff.

I had a pair of chukka lows in the red pfanner colorway around 2008 and the soles separated around the edges where the sidewall meets the gum waffle -- it looked like a blown out vag

I had a pair of lakais a couple years later that i stepped my foot through the sole in 2 or 3 hours of wear

Most dress shoes have shanks, hence why you have to take your shoes off before walking through.

You ever seen American Psycho?


I had a pair of skate shoes die and my friend and I hit a Goodwill and I got a pair of older Manchesters. I was hyped on Lakai and copped them. A week later the curved part where your arch is began to brak off in chunks and blow out it was weird.

Also skated the Vans Rowley re-issue ad after a kickflip or two the toe looked really beaten up. I ended up shoe goo-ing it to death.

my boo j diamond slip on's died almost immediately but you prolly knew that
I started getting a lot better when I went back to college and started taking a lot of math classes when I was 31.

I figured out how to figure things out better, if that makes sense.

I had a good friend who worked for Sole Tech that was helping me out with shoes when I lived in Europe. The unfortunate thing was that all he had to give were sample sizes (8.5-9) and I'm a 10.5. But I was broke so I skated a lot of them. I had a pair of Jerry Hsus he gave me and I was trying to skate some stairs, and on one of the bails my foot just went straight through the toe end of the shoe. That's probably the weirdest shoe experience I've had although I should have expected it considering the situation I was in.

I had the same thing happen to my dylans, landing primo.
You can fix it by taking out the insoles then ripping out the board/footbed. pop out the metal bits then just put those insoles back in.

Had a pair of CTAS where the sole was coming unglued from just wearing them around and not even skating. Took them into my local converse store and got them bitches replaced.

Iíve tried half cabs three times and been disappointed three times. How can something that falls apart so quickly be so popular?

90s half cabs were a different shoe all together

Were you skating the half cabs or half cab pros? The pros I had held up way worse than the og ones, and felt way worse in general. Although in my current age, I find it hard to even walk around in standard vans with the lack of insole or support. Not saying the Pro insoles are great, but I need some sort of cushion under my feet.

In regards to my buds original post, the C1rca Jamie Thomas JT801 had its sole flop like a mouth after hardly skating them for any time at all. They were samples though if I recall correctly, and probably atleast a half a size too big.

The side panel was different. The design was a bit lower too. The shoe looked better. And held up better too.

yeah, the really old ones had the half cab logo embroidered on them, they were some quality joints. Vans quality in the last 5 years (or even the last 10) has really gone to shit, they are pretty much floppy right out of the box these days...
