What's up with the Kals Vulc? Been curious about them for a while, seems like they're always on sale. Dylan Jaeb was making them look pretty good in his throwaway part. Has anyone skated them and liked them? Do DCs run true to size/same as Vans/Nike?
[close]

Never skated the Kalis Vulc but most DCs run true to size so I would assume these are, as well. The Evan Smiths (not the Manual but his actual pro shoe) I had were TTS.

Good to know, thank you. The only shoes that i've had to size down on so far are Last Resorts and Converse.

Every few years I get obsessed with skating af1s: my feet hurt, Jordans/dunks are hard to obtain, Puleo clips will pop up, there was that one Cyrus kickflip, and Gino had some of the best skating ever in them. I tried to skate some mids and it was really difficult. Anyone done it, with some success?

i fuck with the lows heavy
great shoe if you dont mind the dull boardfeel
while cool-guying is a real phenomenon, studies show that 83% of all cool-guying incidents can be attributed to the cool-guyee being an awkward weirdo

I'm looking to try out a new cupsole, and have a few options in mind. I haven't seen a lot of reviews or testimonials on the ones I'm thinking about, so hopefully someone on here has tried them.

I have some chronic foot problems, so a big concern for me is the sole. I'm looking for some midsole cushioning (not just an insole on rubber), and stability in the forefoot (too floppy is a dealbreaker). A mid-top is ideal for me because I wear orthotics, but there aren't a lot of cupsole mids around, so a low with a higher collar is fine. I prefer more of a wide/round toebox, rather than pointy or narrow.

Shoes that have worked for me in the past: Nike SB Dunk Mid, Adidas Tyshawn Mid, Adidas Liberty Cup

Shoes that have not worked for me: NB Tiago 1010 (collar too low), NB Westgate 913 (too narrow, weird square toe shape), NB 440 (forefoot too thin), Vans AVE (collar too low), Emerica Spanky G6 (toebox too long/pointy, overall fit too narrow)

I'm currently leaning toward one of: Cons Fastbreak, Vans Fairlane, or Emerica Gamma G6. I also have the Adidas Forum from the non-skate line, and the upcoming new NB Tiago shoe in the back of my mind. No shops near me have any of these in stock right now, so I'd be going in blind ordering online. If anyone has some input on any of those shoes based on my picky little criteria above, I would much appreciate it!

Not much to offer except I recently got the Gamma G6 and was surprised how pointy the toe was and kinda narrow too. Iím hoping they widen out a bit when I start wearing them but based on that I donít think they would be what you are looking for.

Have you seen the adidas forum? I know they make a skate model, but I just get the normal one, they seem to be pretty wide, and a cupsole, and they come with a strap

Anyone skate the new mantecas? Never worn DCs but Iím really liking the shape of them basically a cheap dunk. Are they actually worth buying and skating?

After skating the Crockett High for most of the past 6 weeks and ripping a sole off a pair I've kinda concluded that feel like a marginally more secure Half Cab. I've gotten just as many heel bruises and don't necessarily find them thaaaay much more secure in the rear foot like a normal cup, but they are. Overall they definitely are a cup that feels much like a vulc and they do satisfy the "cup that is close to a vulc" argument very well. Overall I've liked them quite a bit but don't feel the actual tech is anything special or offers the protection I would want. Probably a close second favorite to Half Cabs for me.

I haven't tried on the non-skate Forums, but I was thinking about it. Might go to a Foot Locker or something soon and try them out. I imagine the 'ADV' ones fit the same as the non-skate ones? I don't care about getting shoes from the skate or non-skate line, but I think they look better with no strap.

^^ Good lookin' out on the Gamma G6's. Hard to tell the toe pointiness from photos, but that's exactly what I'm not looking for.

I keep getting heel bruises in Vans- the Popcush bottoms out near the upper part of the back heel where the heel touches the insole and rear of the shoe. So far I've gotten them on Half Cabs and Crocketts.

I've also skated 440's, which were kinda thin and I didn't love the durability and flick, 1010's feel a bit bulky, and I am not sure what else to try. I really love the Vans models otherwise. I've skated Blazers but don't really remember how they felt other than that the lows bagged out quick.

I think the only major difference between the two are the materials they use, the skate ones have more suede, but I just super glue the stitching, they do tend to blow out if you donít

Iím skating the Rowanís at the moment and have found theyíre the perfect blend of collar height etc. Not too low or high with good support (for a vulc) for my old ass feet. Would recommend.

Seconded. Rowans and half cabs  are the only vulc I can skate.

I mostly concur. Iím skating a pair now and Iím always amazed how tight I have to make them. I donít have any heel slip, though, and I actually like them a lot. Very comfortable and greet board feel.
This is not my SOTY. I'm telling my kids there was no SOTY for 2021
