gatos are too bulky imo
For A cupsole they are on the slimmer side.
More minimal than Dunks,BA's,Reynolds,g6.
They are my go to now.

It's interesting to hear that the Gatos work for you. I know some dudes that also swear by them the same. Love them. On the flipside, the Koston 2 is my current go-to and seriously one of my favorite shoes (I love it as much as the Lakai Howard) but those same dudes think it's way too thick of a cupsole. Different strokes. The Gato is a nice shoe, it just didn't work for me.

gatos are too bulky imo

I'm gonna have to agree with you on that one. I can't feel the damn board at all. When i ollie, i feel like  my forward foot just slips and it doesn't grip it like what a vulc shoe would do. Also the way the toe is constructed...i try to go with what ripped laces advice by kick flipping enough to shape the toe to a more pointy look and i can't. They're too round! plus they drag too.

I'm gonna have to try it again especially with the white coming out and possibly size up because they also feel i'm crunching my toes together.

I don't like the Gatos at all to skate in. It could be my imagination but the midsole feels wedged to me, like I am angled up on my toes. I'm also not a fan of the sole. Both the shape and lack of grip. It took me literally 30 minutes before I took them off and put them right back in the box. I haven't been that sketched out by a shoe in a long time.  They will be relegated to chiller status.

How strange. They do need a little time for the lunarlon to break in and the heel does sit higher than the forefoot, but not quite as high as the OG Buzenitz. I was a little skeptical when I got my first pair. But that grip lasts forever and they are very durable.

Right on, that's good to hear. I will definitely revisit them at some point.

I skated a few of the koston 1, it was a perfect mix between clunky cupsoles and flimsy vulcs. I am usually all over the place with shoes, have skated cons ctas a plenty and blazers. I did try the Gato when it first came out and hated them. I bounced from shoe to shoe and then tried the gatos again with the thinnest fp insole and for me it works well.
I agree with the durability and grip, mostly for me until someone makes a midsole that competes with lunarlon, I am sold on this shoe.
I used to like the thicker drop in lunar insole(like the koston,ctas etc) but they pack out so fast.

you should definitely try again. i did the same thing when i got mine, tried to skate them, hated them put them in my trunk. pulled them because i went skating after work and they were all i had and after a solid session in them i really liked the way they skated. it's one of the bulkier shoes i skated recently too and after broken in properly they feel solid.

What the fuck? Patent leather? Or just plastic? Either way, no.

Quick glance I thought they were the Harbor's SB.

These are nice:

I'm a sucker for 3M, so those blue and reflective Janoski Max's might have to happen.
Look I'm not selling anything that doesn't have my jizz on it. I don't care how much is offered.

not for life... I skated them from 2007 - 2013, and had well over 30 pairs.  I've been scheming shoes off the internet for next to nothing from an unsaid website, and have been skating all kinds of shit.

But the Gato's have been my first repeat offender since my Blazer fever has calmed down.  Lunarlon is no joke, and my feet have never once ached in them.  Plus the way the middle of the sole is cut in helps you really flex your foot on the board to really be able to flick some shit.

Maybe one of these months I'll get a pair of the premium blazers again

Lunarclave looks amazing. Harbor in the front, Janoski in the back, with a P-Rod heel tab thing.

Tate, iwshFinland, Will, McCly or any other Nike heads...what was that site someone posted on here awhile back with the big selection of Nikes? It's not a skate site, just a place that has a big selection of Nike SB stuff and sell some hard to find colors of certain SB shoes.

And does anyone know if Rosheclub.com is a legit site?

Was it PYS? http://www.pickyourshoes.com/

I don't know why they don't have Nike shoes in stock.They;re Legit.

As for Rosheclub.com. I don't know, I hate Rosche's.
