I've skated in them for 4-5 hours so far but only flatground. I was very surprised by how great the boardfeel was. Much better and much shorter break in time than the Reynolds lows. I cant comment on how it handles impacts or how durable they are but if you can get them on sale I would. They run TTS, at least compared to other sole tech shoes.

I've got the Reynolds G6 and Adidas Busenitz pro going right now. Actually prefer the Reynolds, by a lot. Love the way the Busenitz look but I keep semi/almost rolling my ankles in them (even laced all the way up, which I hate). And in the Reynolds I do not, and have had no ankle strain. Boardfeel is good and I don't have after skate pain in my feet like I do in the Busenitz (I am 42 by the way). Durability is way higher as well. And true to size

Bought some Krux bushings for my Aces because I can't get my Indys to feel right. I've already bought two different sets of bushings for my Indys and it just doesn't feel right. Hopefully the Krux Ace combo will cure me of this truck madness.

Mental note... Ankle rolls bad!! (some Busenitz just dropped into my ebay saved search for like £15.. Too tempted).

what are those pivot cups like? I fancy extra cushion (no risers) but self-lubricating??... Last time I slightly lubed my old pivot cups I ended up buying new. Trucks never worked right after no matter how much I degreased.

I'll take squeaking over prone to crazy sudden turns

Sure to catch shit for it being a SC deck (for a number of reasons) but I've been chasing a specific shape (FULL, like the DLX decks) but with the right dims (8.25x32x14.38WB) forever and having stood on this recently I couldn't resist given how close it is; also, I rode the OG Street Creep deck probably 6 times or so back in the day so there is a bit of nostalgia at play.

8.25" X 32" X 14.44WB - it's the new 'wide tip' shape with a steep kick / medium concave, tho it feels deeper than it is (really curious if it's the dsm/dwindle full shape); it's clearly made better than the last SC deck I rode, finish seems nicer/different stamp.



Yeah, riptides so Indy again!

Depends on what shaving a little weight off your setup is worth to you, they don't really add anything other than that. I just know that being used to the weight of theeve, that regular ACEs seem a little heavy to me, and also I love black baseplates with a polished hangar.

$5 canvas Strayes from the store that shall not be named. I figured for $5 I could look past the obvious faults with them and they can just be some trash summer shoes.

Edit: Fuck these shoes. I'm mad I paid $5 for them, absolute garbage.

Palace Lucien Clarke

The dimension looked cool, a bit on the shorter side which gives me the ability to treflip. For some reason that's one of the tricks I can't do well with longer boards.. And also for Lucien love his style and trick selection!

I'm glad someone finally commented on the quality of these. Care to elaborate? I've almost pulled the trigger multiple times because of how cheap they cost.

Wearing them around the house to break them in that day, just rubbing everywhere (pinky toe, top of big toe).  The canvas isn't really creasing naturally with wear, more random folding in causing the rubbing.  Insole isn't bad though.  I wear a 10.5, bought a 10.5.  Fit great when standing.  I guess for $5 if they break in properly they'd be ok, I was just pissed about the rubbing.

If you want more than rubbing, you have to pay more than $5 ;)

Gotta go half size up for Straye, that would fix the rubbing.

I mean they cost $5 and someone somewhere is still making a profit. They're probably made of orphan hair and ticks and for every 5 minutes you have them touching your skin you lose 2 years of life.

It Came From Lurkville dvd.
They premiered it here a couple weeks ago. But it was at midnight. And my old ass has trouble staying up past 9. So I missed it.
Video is sick. A little less than I was expecting from Dolan Stearns. But BK more than made up for it with an epic 2 song last part. And Tim Williams. Holy shit, that guy skates fast and rad. The rest of the team killed it as well.
As a bonus, their last video, Meet the Lurkers is on there too, which is cool.
Also, I ordered it Monday and it was delivered Tuesday.
