They killed the Lunarlon in favor of Hyperfeel, right?

that shoe was uncomfortable AF. for as cozy as max geronzi always looks when he's skating those shoes feel like shit.

Yeah I hated them. Whenever I'd see someone skating them I wanted to know what the hell their deal was.

Koston 3 XT, whatever that means (a rubber toe, apparently)



It means that shoe will be even more expensive.

I don't hate them

What was it that made them uncomfortable? The One Shot had the same sole, right? Those were super-comfy although kinda ugly.

Maybe those just fit Geronzi's foot real good or he's just high as fuck all the time.

I can't speak for anyone else but to me the lunar janoski felt like it was all sole and very little upper. Almost like I was wearing platform shoes. And on top of that, the lace row felt like it ended in the middle of my instep. Just a very strange feeling and fitting shoe the whole around, for my foot.

The Lunar OneShot wasn't a bad shoe but the soft heel was a weird design choice. Just like the FreeSB I will never understand the benefit of having an unstructured heel in a skateboard shoe. Next to no heel lock and the feeling of instability. I sort of get the principle for a running sneakers but that doesn't translate to skateboard footwear.

i bought a pair of one shots from marshalls right when they were being promoted for like $30 or something ridiculous. those were comfy, i actually ran 2-3 miles a day in them, looking back that was stupid. but they felt comfortable, and they skated decent.

these just felt like shit. the body of the shoe didn't make my foot feel locked in safely whatsoever, the laces were coming loose with me just walking around the store, and the sole felt way harder than the one shots. and for the record i've tried on the mid as well, it looks like a space boot.

not a fan. 10/10 parents will not purchase.

Got a pair of Frees and they actually have a really solid heel lock, even when you go a 1/2 size bigger. Super comfy as well

Sometimes having an hard heel isnt the best either... my Hufnagel pro 2's are so stiff that they create blisters on my foot and it's not the best heel lock ever too. Yesterday they did it again so I said fuck it and just skated my pair of free OG's i had on my bag to chill in. They have a neoprene like heel, the soffest i can imagine, so I had to tight it really tight but I didnt felt that insecure. I think for a good heel support is better a good foam placement than a really hard heel.

Agree SKATAN. I didn't mean to infer that stiffer=better for a heel, it's more about the structure of the heel and foam placement more than anything. And not to go full shoe-nerd, but a big part of how your heel locks in has to do with how the shoe is fitting all the way around. Heel lock is still the number 1 thing I look for in any shoe. If the heel lock is sub-par it's a non starter and I'm moving on.

@Jeff - that's awesome to hear the Free worked for you. The Free Nano worked better for me than the original Free. I think because they didn't fit me in the toe box, I always felt like my heels were slipping out of the shoe.

Hey, if you ever feel like trying a pair  I saw some at Ross for 40. They are definitely better as chillers.
