Vans skate good straight away.
just put em on an stomp about a bit if they dont feel comfy straight away.
when they feel snug an abit flexible you can skate.

just walk in them for about a year, don't even skate with other shoes. then you're good to go.

You´ve got to piss in them and put them on. Then wait till they´re dry and while you try to get rid of the skindeseases on your feet, wash them in your washing machine. Then they´re perfect!
I'll go frontside on some tranny for you.

Want to bump this after skating today.

Granted I hadn't skated in five days, I wore some new Lopez converse to skate today. My kickflips were atrocious. I usually have this problem with new shoes.

Anyone got the same issue? Any shortcuts to getting the flick going right away?
