DC New Jack.Looked great and flicked great, but where the sole meets the toe is probably the thinnest sole construction I have seen from any skate shoe. Tore through the toe in a week, which is unprecedented for  me.
Running half cabs now as I know what to expect.

Exactly this, at least they "helped" me realize that I needed to have up vulc crap. Skated those twice and I had a horrible time. Got some Protos and pain is just a memory now.

Been a minute but the absurdly long Quasi I got last summer. Hated absolutely everything about it. Started sizing back down and havenít bought a PS since. Iíll buy a Justin Henry pro model whenever that happens though.

Emerica Wino Baekkel slip on shoes - comfortable and skate ok, but look horrible. I'm wearing them to use them up, but never feel good about wearing them

I bought a pair of the low profile Footprints. Iíve had the Gamechangers and liked them well enough but these donít seem to sit right in my shoe. Could be a coincidence but after skating them for a few hours I lower back really hurt which had not been happening with my previous insoles.

non skate related - $40 worth of pizza and wings, felt like a pile after it


We may not know what skateboarding is
But we sure as hell know what it aint
Wait we know what it is now too -
Falling down and gettin back up

Just purchased a new E Dressen '91 slick. I was having a depressing week and needed some consumer therapy. Its a rad deck but I have 5 in the pile now... its just obscene... Its winter and before winter I was injured so I have more boards than I need.... I have to stop...

Fair enough. I guess the real regret is not skateboarding enough to use all these decks up.

Looking at my growing mountain of 5.25 trucks (Venture, Thunder, Theeve, Indy) and realizing that I like riding bigger boards.

Converse Fastbreaks in size 9.5. I usually wear 9.5, but apparently Converse run a little big and now the toecap isn't snug against my toe. In the past I wouldn't have minded but nowadays I need the shoe to be comfortably snug. And I was really looking forward to the Fastbreaks. I'll still skate them but I'm worried they'll devolve my flick or something.

Grabbed a quasi Wilson deck with the cock/pussy fight. The wheelbase is way too long. Can't wait for it to snap so I can set up my theories deck.

Im a 9.5 in most, usually 9 in converse and i skated 9.5 fastbreaks and honestly the little piece that raises around the midsole on the toe helps with the flick so much. those were a damn good shoe even if they were a little big on me
