AJ1 lows. Definitely not the friendliest to your wallet for skating, but I really like the look and Jordans I've owned in the past were definitely comfy. But how do they skate

I've skated a few pairs, probably some of my favourite skate shoes ever. Sole is a good middle ground between supportive and providing good boardfeel and they sit a tad higher on the ankle than most other 'low' shoes so they feel pretty secure. Pretty comfy and they seem to last me longer than most other shoes too. Definitely recommend. They run a half size big in my experience tho.

Has anyone tried out the state pacifica cupsole yet?
[close]
@Murge did you get your pair yet?

Didnít know where to put this but :

Good news: I got them in the quality seems amazing. They threw in some socks and a couple stickers. I only wore them to take out trash and stuff. They feel pretty good out the box less stiff than the veer cups. Feels like a thin cup. So board feel should be good. They look great.

Bad news: my girlfriend saw them. Loved how they looked and really donít want me to skate them til after we get family photos done (we had our first kid and sheís dead set on getting family photos) So it will be 2 weeks before I can skate them. But Iíll continue to wear them til then. Thereís not a lot of padding near heel collar. But they didnít seem to rub like the Romero. I am concerned on how shallow the tread on the sole is. This is only my second pair of stated so idk if itís normally this shallow

You canít really see depth of tread in that pic Iíll try get a different pic later

How does the Emerica Low vulc compare to the Reynolds 3 g6? Is the heel of the Low vulc as deep as the 3?

Anyone know if there's a single style of Cons that fit a wider foot? I love CTAS Pros but in the size range I fit length-wise they always pinch my pinky toe. Also wondering if there any CTAS that would have some give after break-in time?

Emerica low vulc skates similar to the g6. I had multiple pairs of the low vulc, theres more toe feel on the low vulc because of the different toe cap design and how the laces sit on the top profile, but the heel seemed similar to the Reynolds 3 g6. Reynolds 3 was an overall snugger fit. I would say that the heel wasn't as deep as the Reynolds 3 but still felt familiar. That being said the low vulc is very comfortable and is easy to skate once you break it in.

Anyone skate the Nike Court Vision or Court Royale ? They have some on Nordstrom rack, kinda looks like a good dunk alternative but not sure if its actually a flimsy shoe.

thanks

I have both.

I believe the heel is deeper on the Reynolds 3 G6, because they made room for the thick insole. I've tried thicker insoles in the Low Vulc and it makes the heel too shallow - I get heel slip. So based off that I'd say the 3 G6 is deeper. The 3 G6 also feels like a bulkier shoe overall - it's a bit wider with slightly more padding than the Low Vulc.

I've skated about 3 pairs of the Low Vulc back around 2015/2016, liked em, though I prefer the support of cupsole shoes generally.

^ Putting in a different insole in the low vulc was what I was wondering about specifically, thanks. I've been using FP insoles in the Reynolds 3 g6 for a few years now, but I can't find anymore in my size unfortunately. Reynolds 3 has the best heel-lock of any shoe I've ever had, and is really supportive for a vulc. Sounds like the Low vulc won't work for me.

Think I may try the Alcove cupsole instead. Hopefully the FP insole will fit.

How about these? My shoe choices are limited due to large feet and this exact model is currently available in my size. Bit worried about the leather material, looks weirdly fancy?

I have not had these but I have skated in shoes with a similar leather texture (tumbled leather) like these Blazers. They're a little stiff at first but they they break in enough to be nearly as flexible as suede. Likely, more protective since they won't get to floppy like suede shoes can sometimes do.
They're not too fancy from what others have said in a different thread. If you like Blazers/mid collar/vulcs and the size availability is an issue, I'd move on these. You can always swap laces if the cord style ain't your thing!

I've skated other Blazer mids in the past and loved them all! Flick, fit, comfort, etc. all good with my feet.

Thanks! There was some hate about the Blazers in the Mason Spitfire thread but this reads like I should give them a try!

Also! Since it's a vulc, the sole can feel somewhat feel thin if you're used to cupsoles so replacing the insole is a good idea to make them feel perfect.
I prefer Etnies Pro Foam 1 insoles, G6 insole,  State insoles, or footprints to do the trick.

Thanks to both of you, will give them a try! Been skating in vulcs first Vans Chukka Low then Janoskis for years now, so should be fine.

Before you buy!
CTAS Pro Hi is 0.5 to 1.0 size larger, so order at least 0.5 down from your TTS size. Fast break Pro is TTS.

My sizing on these shoes:
Fastbreak Pro: 11
CTAS Pro Hi: 10.5

should be fine, not even sure they made fakes of those as they came out in 2015. FYI thatís a winterized version so fleece tongue and lining.

True to size. Toebox is a little wider and more round (less pointy) than most skate shoes today, so would probably fit best if you have a wider forefoot. The sole feels thick/stiff compared to most skate shoes out today, but you can really feel the cushioning. It really feels like skating in skate shoes from the early 00's that actually protected your feet. I don't think a lot of people gave that shoe a chance because of how ugly it is; but aside from that, it's one of my favourite skate shoes of the last few years. Seems like they've stopped making it, which is too bad, but I hope they'll make something else with a sole like that.

i think if you don't have a particularly wide foot you can easily go 1/2 size down in them. agree that they skated surprisingly well and look less clunky than they are.

I think they are massive, maybe because I bought a white pair. Also been seeing new colourways but nothing good like the black/white pair or the chewy ones.

Heitor shoes seem to have the same sole.

With you that the Chewy colourway is basically the only good one they made. The little triangular wedge on the midsole wrecks all the ones that would otherwise be okay. I haven't seen any new colourways in a while, so I feel like the shoe is done.

I'm pretty sure the shoe Heitor posted is just a colourway of the Forum Lo with no strap. It's definitely not the same sole as the Liberty Cup, but looks like a fairly thicc cupsole.

Iíve skated the Liberty Cup and a pair of Forum Lows this year.

I really love the Liberty Cup once theyíre broken in (which takes forever, but youíve gotta expect that.) Supportive obviously but they also didnít feel too high and my ankles felt secure. I still have my pair, going to break them out again this winter. I have a white leather pair that I think looks okay; thereís a grey suede pair out there that looks clean too.

The Forum were a super nice surprise. Soft leather; nice roomy toe area, and the sole broke in nicely. These did feel a little unstable (I did roll my ankle badly in them) but I assume/hope the new model has been tweaked a little, as the ones I skated were just ďlifestyleĒ shoes.

Anyone have both Reynolds3 G6 and Vulc version? Do they fit the same (length wise)?

Usually cups fit me a a bit snugger, and the G6 vulc was slightly long for me, so I was wondering if I should do same size in the cup version or down a half size.
