SPVs sucked ballzack, fell apart so fast.

AVEs skate great; sole doesn't phase me too much - really surprised. Wasn't too fond of the toebox crease, it dug in at times. I slept on the dress blues and ended up with the greens/Forrest Night; it's unlike anything in the rest of their lineup.

Didn't like the Berles, sizing felt off (too long, just like the Crockett 2s and TNT protos - it's like those three were made off the same base model or something.

Rowan is a very classic take on (like was said before) the Halfcab and the TNT SG (one of my favorite models).

Still want to skate the 112 mid and the classic mid.

I think the Rowley Solos were my favorite Vans shoe ever. I suppose an Era Pro does get me most of the way there, but I have to do a Customs order to get blue suede so I end up paying $90 for fancy Eras vs $50-60 for Solos. I liked that Solos looked sorta Old Skool-ish with the toe cap, and not as many people were wearing them.

Because they’re cup sole?

Tempted but not a fan of that color way. May do it and run them as house/regular shoes.

I get not liking some of their newer more tech models, but where on earth are you getting the idea that there's a shortage of their "classic designs"? Half the wall at most skateshops I go to are their pro classics.

I'm curious to hear about them. I should take the plunge too at $25 but I just bought some shit this past week and I need to calm down.

If it means anything a random video popped up on YouTube with a kid skating this for the first day.

So it isn’t bad. I’m honestly more concerned about the mesh. They do look more like chillers.

I'm all about the half cabs. As long as they keep making those they can put out whatever they want to corner the market.

They need to start making non-clear soles for the AVE. It limits the good colorways to only make them translucent blue.

The outsole is not always translucent blue. It’s the midsole foam that is and it shines through. I believe they kept this strategy of clear soles to show that new tech and make the shoe feel more valuable. If you cant really see it, its a bit hard to justify 110 for vans that just look “normal”.

I just want a mostly black colorway of the new AVE. They had that one in the beginning with the white stripe, and then an all black colorway.

Bring back the white stripe at least?!

The Rowley SPV was great but boy did you know about it if you landed primo. That said, I used to skate Gravis all the time and there wasn't much difference between how thick their soles where. I'd love another pair. The SOLOS were banging too. I've got one pair of the dress blues colourway left that I'm tempted to skate but I also want to hang onto 'em because I can't imagine I'll find another pair.

I haven't bought the new AVE shoe but I've tried them on and they feel incredible. Really slim but feel super supportive. I'm not that into cupsoles but that's one shoe I'd make the switch from vulc for.

I bet theyre all pretty good for skating, but they just dont look good in my opinion.
Also a big thing is the prize of the shoes.

here in europe you pay up to 140 for a pair of AVEs, 130 for a pair of Berle Pros
but you pay 90 for a Nike SB Blazer, 90-100 for some CTAs Pro or 100 for a Busenitz Pro
[close]

I noticed this visiting Germany, I always wear Vans, but they're the most expensive of all the skate shoes over there, I'd probably be tempted to skate in Blazer GTs instead.

In the UK you're looking at £55 - £70 for Vans Pro line, then Nike & Adidas are, for the most part, £70 upward.

don't know what blackmarket you were shopping at, but vans aren't the most expensive shoes in germany.

Ok

That’s accurate: slim/supportive. Not really padded. Mine lasted really long without showing signs of wear. Didn’t look like I skated them, which can be kinda nice to be able to wear a shoe out to the store without looking liking the dad that probably can’t skate all that great judging by how fast he isn’t moving. Actually fuck that. I’m going back to wearing busted gear all the time. Fuck fresh.
Felt like I couldn’t roll my ankle if I wanted too. Got hot soles sometimes, you are very connected to the board with those, not ‘cushy’.

Got the 112 mid and after a week they felt too long and wide and now I never wear em, I need some thicker socks.

Those canvas/suede Sk8 hi's(?) are HOT. Hopefully the toebox is slimmer but I highly doubt it

That sounds like a really good thing to me. Please don't try to roll your ankles on purpose. Shit is painful.
