sizing in the first few runs seemed to be all over the place but for me a size 10 fits like 10 and 1/4 in length but a 9.5 in width if that makes sense. I'm talking about the Madisons though and perhaps that's one of their slimmer models? Insole is one of the best in the game at the moment though, big brands need to take note. Also quality is top notch. Basically like how vans pros should be made

*sole is a pebble magnet and that is the only area I can fault them in

Anyone skated a stereo lately?

Yep. Had an 8.25 x 14.25 x 32 last year and it was amazing. Nice and flat with a pretty round nose and tail. Would recommend.

I have similar experiences with the Elgins. They are quite "shallow"; tight on top of my foot. Normally I wear a size 11 in everything but I could fit a 10.5 in Elgins otherwise but those squeeze my foot too much. The 11s I got still squeeze my foot but I can get along with them. Sole is a pebble magnet. They look really good and feel solid. I have not skated mine yet. I'm hoping they adjust the fit of their shoes and fix the pebble problem because I really dig these shoes otherwise. And while the fit isn't perfect, it's not so bad that I'd have to get rid of them. I'm actually quite looking forward to skating these cuz the last pair of "too tight" shoes I skated I really liked skating in the end, the HUF Ramondettas.

I think the "tightness" might also because they have rubber under the suede/ canvas panels and thus it takes a lot longer to stretch them out? I still have to wear fairly thin socks with mine whereas the etnies Ryan Lay's I got at around the same time are now broken in perfectly. Really want to try some of the Salems but you can get bishops online for like $15 which is a steal!!! They also had a cupsole in the works but not sure what happened to it...

The cupsole got canned because there weren’t enough prebooks to justify production. Really loving the Harlem model though great fit and really comfortable

Thanks for all the info, fellas. I’m going to give them a shot once they arrive. I’ll just have to try going a size up.
I hope they’re not so narrow that they hurt my feet, though. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I've been sorta vocally bummed about bigger companies in skating, but I've also been bummed on a lot of the shoes I've been trying to skate and feeling a total gear crisis. I think the Busenitz Pros are the shoe that I'm looking for. I had a pair years ago and liked them well enough, but I went to two shops yesterday and they had zero pairs in my size. -_-

anytime i buy shoes that arent the Busenitz Pros (except the Lucas Pro, Silas SLR, and Busenitz ADV... all of which are no longer made), I think to myself, "why didnt I just get some busenitz pros?"

I really would be comfortable saying that they really are the best overall skateboard shoe ever made

The third shop I went to only had one pair in my size but I wasn’t too hyped on the color, but I tried on some Suciu ADVs and they feel like exactly what I’m looking for. The rubber insole was kind of a trip but people online have been swearing by them so I went ahead and grabbed them. Definitely have high hopes!

Any generator board around 50 euros in Europe it's a fucking bargain. In Spain they're charging around 70-75...

here in Slovakia you can get high quality eu brand "Ambassadors" boards for as little as 30€ a piece, so I mostly ride those and when I find AH deck for 50 or less I get that... That's 20 bucks plus JUST for brand loyalty!!1!

Currently skating one. Shape is nice and it skated great for like 2 sessions then promptly went soggy on account of the DSM wood.

Damn...where do you live? According to the Woodshop thread, the US Evisen decks are made by South Central.

never seen a non DSM evidence board so I think this may be an urban myth...

I've skated scum co's on pennswood and really liked them. I can't imagine that the wood would be different for different brands, but I've seen other companies decks that were pressed by pennswood and they didn't look as high in quality as any scumco's I've seen pressed by pennswood. This could totally be in my head. I've really like any scumco's I had that were pressed by pennswood and would strongly suggest giving them a try.
