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

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.
Did any of you guys ever notice that if you took off the end "er" from his name, moved the "b" to after the "i" and then added an "l" to the "b" that you just moved, you'd spell "Bible"?

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
