Og great, another skate loafer for the clearance rack.
[close]

I wish it was a nicer colorway at least.

But that Caroll looks beautiful.

Also looks like they changed the heel collar material out to fabric on those MCs. May have to give them another try.

Did the Boys of Summer version have a faux leather material in there or was it fabric?
[close]

The heel material looks similar (I threw out my pair after skating the heck out of them).
I like them. Definitely bulky but felt similar to a half cab. I got a lot of compliments but the price tag feels weird for a Vulc.

the olive green ones look like they have leather on the heel, did your heel slip at all? i found a pair for $60, was thinking about trying them

Got a pair of the Mike February Neo Ultrarange as summer wear shoes. Theyíre really comfy. Like really comfy. Itís hard to justify its MSRP, but thankfully my nephew works at Vans [mall] and I was able to use his discount.

Has anyone skated/worn the vans lowland models? Iím digging the look, I like that itís a different vans stripe/wave logo and that itís leather

I think they have the Comfy Cush sole which is 90% foam or something so you could skate them but they'll shred pretty quick if you are hard on your shoes.

Pedro Barros I think has some clips on his IG wearing them while skating, so they're skateable! That's all I got though

When you have a shoe sponsor, you can skate any shoe without worry of how quickly itíll shred.

Definitely! It must be nice to "test" models like that and not worry about cost or whether you have another model to skate immediately after it! (Slap sale gear regulars excluded because they can do the same thing but aren't the norm)

Side note: Vans could/should do more experiments with making skateable versions of their comfy Cush/hiking/chiller models again, because there are some silhouettes and soles with lots of potential I think to be the next Half Cab or dunk-a-like.

I legit like the BMX wafflecup slip-ons. Would love to have that sole on the Half Cab

Iím pretty sure the  box waffle cup have a shank plate in them that probably helps with the support of the sole compared to the regular waffle cup. Ps I miss you .

I also think the BMX slips are a sleeper hit. They're based on the Pro slips so the fit is a lot better than the Skate slips and the pairs that I have had had the dura cap over the toe so kinda best of both worlds. I do think the sole is pretty much identical to the all of the other Wafflecups I've tried for better or worse. I like that sole but I know others don't.

The main problem with the BMX slips is getting a decent colorway. They've put out a few non branded/collab colorways that have been alright but they make me look like that software bro POS that I have somehow become.

Agreed. I have a pair of the comfy Cush slip ons from probably 2019 and theyíre still one of my most comfortable pairs of shoes

I was at a vans store the other day. Tried on skate half cabs and Crockett highs. The skate half cabs in my regular size were choking the life out of my feet. Half size up, they felt ok but not great. Crockett highs in my usual size felt anywhere from a half to full size too long. I either have the most fucked up feet or vans is going crazy with sizing these days. 

I will say, the Crockettís felt pretty nice. All of the uncertainty about the sizing has me a little hesitant though.

Nailed it. Also AA skating in auth hiís x hockey lately. Another release? Or just wishful thinking?

This is bang on.  Could barely get the Skate half cabs on my feet in my size.  Tried Crockett highs in my size and they felt great.  Ended up getting Wayvees a half size up because they felt good in the shop, but after a few sessions theyíre getting pretty loose.  All that to say, I think a broken in pair of half size down Crockett highs would be ideal.

Crocketts are lowkey a great shoe. I want a pair of Half Cabs with the Crockett sole.

I have some MTE Old Skools. I was mostly using them for light hiking to rock climbs because they have a Polarfleece lining and decently knobby tread and they lace up fast. They accomplish that well, no complaints about them really.

I had a pair of the original MTE SK8 Hi's. those things were absolute tanks, no matter how hard I wore them they never wore down or got shredded. Lasted probably 5 winters.

Yes. I've ran them for winter needs of all sorts. Snow camping, hiking, pow surfing, shoveling after FEET of snow you name it. They are good and hold up. Have the GoreTex MTE Iguchi boots and they are tanks as stated. Plus Iguchi is a ripper of snow and skate so gotta support.

Iíve been skating the Zahba Mid lately and I have to say, I like the way it fits my foot and how they feel. The Zahba low was a little snug for me in the toe box. Iím really digging the mids.

Shit this got me thinking I'm not sure where my Sk8-Hi MTEs are and winters comin up. Gotta find them foot jawns soon....

Wish the sole had more stock padding, but the upper is strong AF, and pretty water resistant but a lot of that is probably from the hydrophobic sealing spray I put on
Do you see another one of these over there?

Fuck, I'm really conflicted with these. I learned kickflips in the original ones, so I'll always have a soft spot for them, but I don't really wanna buy something with thin blue line era Rowley's name on it.

Not particularly skate related, and they're only available in Japan, but I know there are some cycle nerds on here, so here's the Blue Lug x Vans collab.
