Been skating the DC Landau s for quite a while! Needed a bit to get used to it in the beginning but since then i really love them. Just got the 4th pair in a row! You should give it a try!

quick question....

i saw it briefly mentioned but does anybody have any opinions on the Blazer cs?

i've been pining for the simple shoes that ARENT vulc, and i love blazers but they just feel so stiff to me... i'm wondering if the cupsole version makes that much a difference

I have 2 pair of these in the closet that I bought from Tactics for $35 each, about a year ago.  Glad I did, simple design and comfortable shoe.

I've got these and I'm digging them...like any cup sole it takes a little bit longer to wear em in but they feel good and decently grippy

the blazer cup was a good idea, and they lasted a while, but I thought they took too long to break in. all the new lakai xlk cups have been killing it. after about a day they break right in, are grippy and last a while.

They are Nike Classic SB.  They stopped making them a while back.

P-Rod 5/6

You are wasting your money anywhere else unless you are buying dunks. (I would normally vouch for Supra, but their soles are trash)

+Adidas' skate line is garbage.

The Busenitz suck so bad, its a joke.

If you want cups don't get cups that look and skate like vulcs!

I broke into my first ever pair of Busenitz yesterday and am actually a pretty big fan. Really good grip, good ankle support, nice sole, little to no break-in period, and my feet don't hurt after a really long day of skating (which normally is the case).

i got an ugly ass mint colorway of those for free at a contest/product toss. mine felt like garbage though, cheap and they looked strange on my feet. the lacing would always look fucked up. i assume it's because they were probably samples. yours also look a lot thicker than mine. i would kill for a brand new pair of sal 23s!
