I really wish they were doing an 8.125 of this.  It sounds really nice.

It’s real….they’ll drop an 8.126, or an 8.08

It would be sick if they let Ben give his own signature measurement…..

Ben can do no wrong in my eyes, but I've seen enough of his content to know that him and I are like exact opposites when picking out a board. Whatever he put together aint for me, respectfully.

yeah, the same for me. He likes trucks that don't turn much and enjoys the delayed pop of "finger's of flat". I don't think I'd be able to do a single flip trick on a setup he likes.

I like that flatness and his idea of almost identical kicks, but the deck he's designed has these fingers of flat. Some of my tricks just don't work if a deck has that. 360 flips for example are nearly impossible for me with this delayed pop.

There's a lot of Ben footage in Chris Roberts' latest upload, which is pretty cool. Chris Roberts is a funny one because I find him insufferable on The Nine Club when he's trying to appear all genuine and shit, but I find him funny and decent on his I'm Glad I'm Not Me videos when he's trying to be insufferable and corny.

Shoes outstanding looking. I haven't watched this yet but I assume it's not for me. Unless they made the ball of the foot area little more padded.
It's like a very forward leaning shoe. All your weight is on the balls of your feet.
This great for popping tricks but it starts to kill my feet.
I could go back to the Ave but I'd have to invest in a second insole to cut I. Half and stuff in front of the foot bed.
I hope that adidas fixed this. Because the Superstar was my top shoe. 25 bucks at marshalls.

I wish Ellisa was on adidas. We might get the Superstar mids with the straps back.

She might be too cool now for regular shoes tho. Ellisa deserves a $400 a pair boutique custom shoes In my opinion.

They are already back, they're called the Pro Shell ADV. Check the adidas website

Seeing as last time he retired his biggest regret was having sold out to a shoe company, this feels like a great move. Also am I reading too much into the fact he's not linking up with Joa while in LA?

Shoe is whack and video was too.
“Vans, how do you know, I love coffee?” I’m so spoiled with flying business. What could be seen as a disclaimer, that this is advertisement, doesn’t sit well with his channel at all.
Review is only thinly veiled marketing Blabla.

Do you think hes contractually obliged not to objectively review (I.e. trash) the shoe or is he just being to good of a boy?

I’m so over Ben Degros. Can we forget about him and move on with our lives already?

Him being butthurt about getting free boards with a graphic he picked was the last straw for me.

Nah I always thought he had an anal retentive type of vibe but Gifted Hater love(d) him so I gave him the benefit of the doubt. Have never finished a video of his

Did Ben do a favourable review on Cariuma when they were sending them to influencers?

I used to think he was a bit too chipper or something but as I watched more I realized he’s kinda cool and gives no fucks. He also rips pretty hard for 40 or whatever.

Was he butt hurt? Or did he take the joke and even mentioned he'll hang up the one graphic he screened. He didn't want to put the other graphics on because he wouldn't ride em. Seems sensible and not wasteful.

Anyways, the AVE "review" video sucked.

I love Ben but that video was pretty bad for all the above reasons. Especially his "Oh I had the wrong wheels to skate Venice curbs" excuse. The more people become industry insider types the less interesting they seem to be I suppose. I dunno. Not for me.
