Anyone fuck with the skate fairlanes?
[close]

I love them. Most comfortable Vans in years. Skate well but take a while to get good flick with the slippery leather.
[close]

Whoa that shoe looks so rad.  And it almost looks wide enough to where I could actually wear/skate them.  I usually have to order Vans custom wide and theres no skate options im aware of…
[close]

Width wise, they fit similar to the Half Cab '92. The only two Vans models in years that didn't give me blisters on my pinky toes.

Interesting. 

Have you tried Wavees or AVEs before? 

Those actually seem sorta wide from photos but I cant fully tell, trying to understand this Vans lineup I’d previously assumed wasnt for me.

I couldn't fit my orthotics in the AVEs. I had a couple pairs of Wayvees but they are pretty thin on the bottom of the sole. Not a very supportive cupsole. Great, breathable Summer shoes though.
How much for an order of ribs?

I have wide toes and it’s for this reason that I love the AVE. One of the best shoes I’ve found for someone whose feet are constantly bound in most skateboard shoes.
This is not my SOTY. I'm telling my kids there was no SOTY for 2021

Same here. It’s weird. Love them. I need those white/yellow ones to go on sale.

Apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere but does anyone know how the '92 sizing compares to NB 440?

10 in both. I personally do not find '92 to fit different than regular Half Cabs- maybe a hair more volume. I tried a 9.5 in both and toes were hitting the end.

I bought the first half cabs in at least a decade and I know that new Vans cut your heel and ankle, but dude the lower part of my ankle really hurts even after maybe two weeks or so. I remember half cabs getting all nice and soft – is this still true for the new pro generation? Or do i need to live with the stiff ankle shaft? Would be a shame, cause are killer otherwise

I used to love Vans for their iconic and timeless shoe-designs.
But nowadays it seems like, theyre trying to jump on the tech bandwagon. Ii bet a lot of you like the new shoes they have put out in the recent years, but in my opinion they just lost their iconic design.

The last realease I was really stoked on, were the Rowles SPVs:



and the Rowley Solos:



The new designs just seem to have lost their classic feel. One horrible mention is the Berle Pro:



And the AVE shoe would be very sick, but why did they have to choose this weird material for the sole and the outers?



I wish they could just stick to their calssic waffle cup soles and the timeless vans design. But with shoes like this:



or this:



they just disappoint me with every new release and I went back to converse.

Converse somehow keeps sticking to their roots and good designs...

Yeah almost all the brands are moving to release new models, converse doing new designs specially for women shoes, but a classic is a classic… all star… etc
In vans i only interested on  oldschool, sk8 hi, slip and era models, the skate version always

I dont like the new vans models either

What's wrong with the Chimas, normal Kyle Walkers, and Crockett (both low and high)?

Has anyone got the scoop on whether those green/red suede black sole authentic highs AA has been wearing lately on instagram are going to be released?

Half Cabs fit pretty true to size for most in the current line. You should be safe to stay the same size, unless you sized up or down in your old skools.

The half cabs do have a more forgiving upper since the tongue is padded and the vamp is more open rather than a straight and narrow fit across the top of the foot. Longer/more spacious toebox by comparison.

I’m sz10 in vans , and the new skate line def fits very snug pre-break in. So much so I may consider sizing up 10.5 next pair to give toes somebreathing room. Maybe my feet are getting bigger with age lol. Half cabs felt more crowded than sk8hi for me. Both new skate line, both sz10

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 Crockett’s felt pretty nice. All of the uncertainty about the sizing has me a little hesitant though.

I had two pairs of Half Cab ‘92s this year (different colorways).  The first were completely TTS, the second felt almost a full size too big (didn’t try them on before buying them).  Ended up just bailing on skating them cause they were like awkward clown shoes looking down at the board.

Skate line Vans run a half size too small easily.
I ordered 3 pairs at once during early Covid because the shop had closed. I had no idea things had changed. Skate line era skate line authentic and chukka. Only the chukka was the same size as it was as the Pro line.
I was able to keep getting chukka lows but they went out of stock.
I took a chance and got the skate line slips in 8.5.
Most foot pain I've ever had. It took me 15 mins of struggle to get them on the first time and I tore all the skin off the top of my thumb in doing so.
Pain pain and more pain but Man do they look beautiful and they are bulletproof tough.

A pal sent some all stars to help out because after 3 weeks of hard skating I still couldn't re shape them proper.

They work now but are still tight AF. The all star pros or whatever are killer. Wish I had copped tho from the go.

I couldn't.

Didn't in like 2005 vans (maybe DC I can't remember) drop a bunch of waterproof skate shoes that looked normal.

That would be kinda sick. A rain skating shoe.
