Has anybody mentioned the Proper Cinex.? Im trying the shoe out next. Just got the Rook from Proper and feels so good.

Yah, was mentioned earlier in the post - too bad they only make white on white and they're $75

They come to right around $65 with the SLAPNERD code. If I can get enough people to get some and stop buying Corpco shit I'll do another order with more than just white. Until then, spraypaint away. Also, $75 is pretty reasonable for an all suede mid top with overlays.

How wide are the cinexes compared to dunks and the other proper models? Looking for something stable and on the wider end but would also like it to be mid or high top if possible

Theyíre wider than Dunks for sure, Iíd say the cinex width is between the conquista and the Rook.

Side note: what helps you guys with online ordering? Free exchange on sizes or something?

I do not mind 75 at all. Adidas and Nike hightops are way above that price. Hell the fullcab is 80 something. Cts high are 70+. Its fair. Plus the reflective stripes on the back have me sold. Especially if the quality is the same as the rook.

You guys are finally in a shop online in Canada, so I've got my finger on the trigger for a pair of Cinex. Only thing I'm a bit uncertain on is the insoles. Is there a photo of them anywhere? Could you possibly give a comparison or even measurement on how thick they are in the heel?

I've recently started wearing custom orthotics, and the added heel volume has caused me to switch to mids, and caused very few shoes to fit properly unless I go with virtually no cushioning (best combination so far is One Star mids, with a thin ~10 year old Supra insole, with the orthotics on top).

Thanks!

Thanks, out of the conquista and rook, which one is the wider one and which one is the narrower one? Also just to make sure, I wasn't necessarily talking about room in the toe area, but rather the midfoot/heel area. Also would like to know about insole thickness as I am probably going to put some fp insoles in there if I get them.

Sorry if too big. They are slim but feel pretty good. The Rooks have more padding on the heel underneath the insoles. Pretty comfortable and I have fat flat feet. Also the heel locks in the shoe really well.

Conquista is a little wider than the Rook in the midfoot, less layers on the upper. The Conquista is also a bit lower at the heel. I made sure we used better PU on the midsole, that's usually one of the first things to go at big companies, they switch to shitty ones. The thicknesses I spec'd on the insole (for a 10.5 which was the sample) is 6mm in the front up to 12mm in back. Hope that helps.

If you got any more questions post up or message me. Thanks everyone.

Settling with some eS Accel Mids for the summer since itís already hitting 100 degrees out here. Feels good to be ina mid cut shoe again but i still wish there were more options out there. The sole is so thin & soft that it hurts if you slam your foot on  the side of your board even with a FP Custom orthotic. The heat even makes the insole super mushy at times which can feel weird. I think one of those Dr scholls athlete insoles with the shank plate may actually work better in these, Iíll have to try it out

Also the fact that thereís no tongue straps for the Mids is super whack. Luckily i get by using a hair tie but still...step that shit up SoleTech

After skating Emerica cupsoles for months, Es felt mushy and unstructured. They are only a midsole and heel cup off being really good shoes. The materials are fine..

I totally agree. I think I saw some advanced version of the accel in one of those recent es catalogs that had a translucent midsole and a strap. Maybe that'll be the upgrade we're looking for? shit I'd take the swift sole on the accel upper at this point

I donít think this has been mentioned yet but Iíve had a pair of the adidas superstar vulc, I canít stand that blue Insole but itís so thick I replaced it with a footprint kingfoam and an old pair of Supra insoles I had from some sky top 3s (pretty comparable to vans ultracush insoles). With that combo it theyíre more supportive than most cups, I did a good bit of jumping in them with no issues.
