Also, the TNT advance prototype is still being made? see a new color pop up but these were crazy cheap at the outlet

Do his shoes sell like crazy or something? Cause it's really surprising to me that he's still getting pro models and people are doubting that Reynolds will get one

I kind of assumed it was in his contract that he gets x number of pro models, so they had to keep making them, even though he's not really a top level pro anymore. But that shoe looks disgusting, and it's been in the line a couple years now, so someone must be buying it.

Ok

I basically shill for the AVE now. Found myself near a track and decided to run in circles for a while, didnít have my running shoes, feet felt fine afterwards.

I need a pair. Was waiting for some significant discount. the 30% was good but had bought too much recently to bite on em. Liking the crockett 2's cushion wise just from walking around lately.

Gilb2ís look decent for sure. When Iím not stanning for the AVE I just want plain authentics/eras/maybe half cabs, in the most basic colors. I skated in my Juliens and that was fun for the 2 weeks they lasted. Some of the newer tech vans shoes look pretty bad....

I mean no one is getting a contract like that, right?There's no way shoe companies are doing 10 pro model shoe deals, even someone like Vans.

I don't know if they're giving out deals like that anymore, but I think they did at one point. I don't know if it was 10 pro models specifically, but I don't think TNT still has a pro shoe just because of his marketability, which is nowhere near what it once was. Look at the last couple pro models P-Rod had on Nike. He wasn't exactly on top of the skate world anymore, his shoes weren't flying off the shelves, and they had newer guys who deserved it more. I assume TNT's last one or two Vans pro models are the same thing. Depending on when he signed his deal, there might have been a bidding war with another brand, or he may have just had a lot of negotiating power to get something like that written in.

This is a lot of speculation on my part, so I have no idea if it's true, but that's just the scenario that makes the most sense to me.

Not a fan of that pumpkin colorway at all, but I definitely have a pair of TNT Advanced Prototypes in the rotation of shoes I skate in. Comfortable, durable, and remind me a bit of the AV Rapidweld Pro.

@franc did the rowan's and crockett fit you the same? same size? Feel like crockett might run a tad longer?

Sorry for the delayed reply.

I got both in the same size (11.5) and the Gilbies might be a tiny, tiny bit longer. Both did fit well until I tried to skate the Rowans which I didn't like at all.

i feel like the only locks for pro shoes in the future are Reynolds and Kader. those will sell super well unless Vans completely botches the design. would love to see what reynolds brings to the table in terms of a Vans shoe.

Anyone noticed that the new Old Skool pros (full suede) are ridiculously wide or am i just trippin? I have pretty wide foot yet my trusty old 8.5s feel almost too loose.

If Reynolds made a good looking cup. Something you can wear to skate and to do errands that would be ideal.

I really enjoyed the aves but the clear some gimmick wore off quick to me. And the weird toe cap on it durable but just looked not so great to me. I got the all black and I with I got the white ones. I canít pull off an all black shoe.

For those who find vulcanized Vans to be very grippy on fliptricks, how do the AVEs compare? I skate Vans all the time, but I notice my fliptricks are a lot better in cupsoles because of slightly less tackiness. Would buy some AVEs if the flick wasn't quite as sticky as, say, my slipon pros.

Curious to hear what you didn't like about them? I absolutely love mine, best skate shoe I've had in years

Yes, I can confirm that the AVEs are slightly less sticky than the pro vulcs.

Are these limited?
Sold out everywhere. I really want a pair.
Side note, i bought the era pros(or whichever one has no padding on the collar) and they are so uncomfortable. Blisters on pinky toe and heel rub. Granted i was sock-less but my intent was for some summertime shoes.
Do they get better?

Authentics then if they dont have collar padding. id say wearing with socks to break them in would be a better choice. maybe theyre too snug ?

PRod definitely had a contract guaranteeing 10 pro models. I assumed theyíd expand beyond that, particularly with Primitive taking off, but looks like thatís not the case. Wonder if theyíll give him one more model before he moves completely into the background / retires.

Awww man, i thought they reissued the spvís. They should, one of my favorites.
Iím bummed on the authentics and wish they would break in but whatever. Shouldíve bought the originals. Half the price and not terribly uncomfortable.

The Rowans are extremely durable and donít potato out like other Vans. Hold their shape and form well. Made from premium materials for a simple looking shoe.

It's by no means an advanced shoe, but the Old School Pros have always treated me well. It seems like the non-pro classics wear out almost immediately.

I've been skating mine since first week of April and they're still holding up great, no shoe-goo or anything. Sole is starting to get a little smooth though.

Could be the new popcush? or you suggesting rubber compound, shape, etc? Rowans have that new outsole(gum rubber?) tech too
