P-rod 5's are a decent shoe, they skate well and are quite durable. No board feel though, but that's not a problem with you, correct?

not really if the shoe fits then ima be able to feel the board well enough. thanks tho im really considering picking these up unless i find a killer deal on something else. i had the 2's years ago and they were pretty good so im sure the 5's are even better

?86 down to ?50, just couldn't resist




skating is all about choosing your outfit very deliberately, going out in public. looking super sick. and then riding your board a little bit

I'm digging everything about that shoe. This is the first time a pair of Gravis have appealed to me.

At first, the toe/front area is super tight but after a few hours of walk and wear (skating), they broke in.

Favorite part of the shoe is the designed toe area. Since it's narrow it provides a pointy toe for flips. Which for me is good in any shoe!

A place by me has them for $40, but of course whenever the good shit is on sale they never have my size.

Are Gravis waxed canvas shoes waterproof? Might get some of the Quarters for rainy days.

No they are not.

Also with the waxed canvas I found that even just from normal walking wear they would crack and split around the point where the shoe bent.

I love my pair. It's probably the best cupsole I've ever skated. Only complaint is the tongue is super puffy, but that's not a big deal.


And not a big deal either, but did anyone else skating the 76s feels strange at how thin the sidewalls are? I expected them to be a little puffier, like most cupsoles.

Yeah, it's really just for looks. Adds almost nothing to the durability of the shoe.
