Snagged an Anti Hero Daan board today. For as much of a Deluxe fanboy that I am it occurred to me that I've never actually skated an Anti Hero board. Also got a new pair of Footprint Gamchangers. I went awhile without because I wanted to convince myself that I didn't need them but I'm a stupid idiot and I need them.

Went through the same thought process before I got a pair of Kingfoam Orthotics and I feel like an idiot for not getting a set years ago.  Interested to hear how you like the Gamechangers.
All you got is today, get out and skate.

These are actually my third pair. They really do work, I just went through two pairs back to back and wanted to see what it was like to skate normal insoles again. But after getting a heelbruise on a not very high drop I knew I had to go back.

are the game changers better than the kingfoam elites? i got a pair and they're aight but they feel more squishy than the regular kingfoam hi's did, they never really seem to get firm.

I've never had the Kingfoams but I really believe in the Gamechangers. They're not really squishy or too bulky or anything. I just feel a general sense of support, which is nice in the thinner shoes I tend to wear. Plus everyone's feet/walking patterns/etc are different so the whole oven molding thing you do is super cool so that you get support exactly where you need it.

Tried the regular kingfoams. Super comfy but lack support, after putting my feet through regular vulc shoes it's messed up my arches and sticking to Gamechangers. Orthics are good but after a while my arches would burn, a problem I don't have with gamechangers
Nothing I do deserves more than an iphone camera.

I just picked up a pair of Venture 5.8s. I'll see if I like them better than the Thunder 149s that I've been using.

Dear, Skateboarding + Polar collab deck. Graphic nod to Salman. Graphics by Ron Chatman I think.

I did the same recently, pushing around on them I can't say I'm sold. There's definitely a lag before you start turning. I wish they'd just make a slightly higher thunder with an extended base plate, it would be hands down the best truck.

I wish the same thing, I like everything about Thunders except the wheel bite (even with 1/8" risers). I will see what they feel like when I can skate again, overall I am excited to try them.

My only complaint was your sock bunching up a little bit with the insole but that only happens when you put the shoe on. Once it's on they are fine. I loved them and want to buy the black high tops next. Might have to skate my samba ADVs first to justify the purchase.
Man the long board truck thing killed indy for me. I was willing to set aside the racism, but long boarding, gtfo... - DH

I skated the classic white leather color of the Superstar ADV for about 2 weeks before I couldn't stand them.
To me, they start looking really bad after you skate them, probably because they were white leather but I also shredded the laces very quickly.

I also have very sweaty feet, so after about 10 minutes my foot would be sliding like crazy on the insole and my heel would slip out of the back of the shoe when pushing and walking. I actually felt like the Adiprene was too high and mushy and very unstable.
Overall I just don't think the shoe holds its shape very well and it's a giant miss just like the way they designed the Stan Smith Vulc. I'm not sure who's foot it was designed for or who the hell did sample testing.

After reading about Jc taking zumiez for all they're worth in the sale gear thread, I figured I checkout what cheap welcome boards were up, found one in the shape I like for $35 so i snagged it, it's gonna sit at the back of my stack of boards for a while but hopefully it has a good bottom ply stain I can strip back.

Picked up a GX long sleeve from a uk shop that was on sale too

If you're not already, do yourself a favour and use spacers with them. It helps prevent too much stress on the cages meaning they're less likely to crack.

Sure, spacers are in place. But thanks for the advice!

My new theory is to buy them directly from Powell because then you can buy an extra or a cage which they sell in singles....

That's actually not a bad gimmick for a company....sell a set of 9 so you have an extra....
