Old skool too. Just don't feel like putting them on my feet anymore when every other dork in the street is wearing them.

I have a strong dislike for white soles. I prefer gum but I like black like the leather louies or some of the numeric blackouts too. In terms of looks I usually like soccer style shoes best but don't always love how they skate. I've always been a vulc guy but I started wearing more cups lately with the DC Tiago S and numeric 440 and I'm really appreciating the comfort and protection on my old feet.

I love skating in white leather, keeps the shoe more firm and I dont have to worry about not matching. I do prefer Reeboks over skate shoes nowadays, Club C and Revenge are usually on sale for $30. Finding gum sole Workout lows on sale would be like the holy grail.

Honestly, fucking ew. This has always been one of my least favorite skate shoes because of how they look. It reminds me of the coolest kids in 8th grade stealing shit from the mall that we all claimed to hate. Might as well be baby fucking blue with checkers while we’re at it. Sorry.

Really?! Who pissed in your Cheerios?  What's wrong with black and gum soles? Simple easy looking and nothing gaudy like logos everywhere. Honestly it's kooky to make assumptions about someone who wears shoes you don't like.

I'm not as passionate about the hate for those but I do think that chukkas should never be lows. Just looks unnatural for some reason. I hate stitching that sits right where my ollie hits as well.

I wish I didn't have to look at your sig in every thread tbh. That shit is annoying and usually so are your posts.

The new Kalis S has some good tech and a clean design, future versions could trim down the tongue a little. The Kalis Vulc has amazing flick but the heel support feels a little lacking as does the cushion where the ball of your foots on.

So what I'm saying is to take the tech bits of Kalis S (support, bootie construction) and marry that with the simplicity of the Kalis Vulc (vulc construction).
Did any of you guys ever notice that if you took off the end "er" from his name, moved the "b" to after the "i" and then added an "l" to the "b" that you just moved, you'd spell "Bible"?
