Been skating AJ1 lows and love them. Big fan of skating leather shoes for their durability, and these have a quality leather that has lasted longer than some SB's I've tried. They've really kept their shape and the outsole hasn't noticeably lost grip despite the tread wearing down.

I noticed when I first put them on that they have a harder sole (this was surprising, I was expecting them to feel like dunks), but it worked for me. I usually hate skating new shoes but I remember having a great first session in them, the stiff cupsole felt really good. I might be team cup forever now.

The tongue isn't too puffy but has cushioning, laces are high above the sidewall and safe from danger... I have zero complaints. Bout once a week would brush some gorilla glue on the stitching around the toe to avoid blowouts (Wavy Phil tip). Pretty slim in the toe so maybe not the best fit for a wide foot. Feel a lot like a pair of eS accel slims I skated around 2012, which I really liked as well.

Got a new pair of all black mids coming with what seems to be a different type of finish on the leather, excited to see how they hold up.

Flick is great, and I agree they skate great. My size 12 is for sale in the classifieds though, too snug for my foot (Iím a 13)

Been on the fence about getting a pair to skate but this might put me over the top for purchasing. How long had you skated this pair when the pic was taken?

I started skating this pair maybe 6 weeks ago, but mind you with my work hours and location I am a weekend warrior. I probably skate once or twice during the week after work, then get two long sessions in on the weekend.

I think with skating hard every day they wouldn't last as long as these have lasted me, but I would still say you'd probably notice more durability than a suede or even leather nike sb.

just retired these.  I got a solid month and a half out of them, and probably could have gotten a lot more, but I have a stockpile of shoes I need to get through and I'm trying to learn to let them go before they're totally blown out.  First few sessions were a bit stiff, but once they broke in, they were amazing.  Was surprised how well the canvas held up.  Some of the stitching in the main wear areas blew out pretty quick, so I'd recommend hitting that with a small layer of superglue, but other than that, they were top notch.  9/10

Thanks. These are slimmer than the usual high top Dunks so they fit under pant legs nicely.

Thanks for the info! Gonna have to try some out. Figure they'll last me a while as I'm not super hard on shoes for whatever reason.

Pulled these out earlier today  8)


Going to skate in my navy Lynx in a little bit for an evening session! Been trying to rotate back to puffier shoes this year for shits and giggles (plus protect tha feet lol) and it's not as gnarly as I thought it might be. Pretty manageable!

Bummed I didn't pick up these to skate in. The deconstructed dunks are so much better. I bought the Soulland ones to chill in and can't being myself to skate in them as I will never find a pair again. Hopefully they will release more deconstructed ones sometime soon.

I hear you, but one thing that Iíve come to realize is one day youíre going to look at the heel. Itís going to be walked off and angled. Youíll think to yourself ďman I could have skated these...Ē

Since I'm trying not to look everything up online to use my limited brain every now and then - I'll say I know the Ginko, Quercus (Oak) and is the tremula trembling aspen? The others I have no clue - are they European species as the others just seem to be northern hemisphere (with the Ginko being used as a park tree due to its tolerance to dog urine).

And to stay on topic I'm about to retire my off-white Rowley Motorhead Vans. Still life up top but the sole is dying a quick death.

Loving seeing the Knox 440 hi in the wild photos! Tempting me more and more to get a pair soon.

Retired some Maranas and may jump into these Joslin 2s or run some Kalis S that I have. On the fence on both since they both feel good!

This for sure, i have been big on the mids lately, you can def find them for a good price if you look hard enough.

Really curious about those Joslin 2. Are they huge or just like a dunk?

I have both. This may surprise some but the Joslin 2 actually looks/feels like a better (albeit slightly different) version of Dunks (at least to me). It's not a 1:1 dunk knock off but they can fill the gap of wanting a dunk since they're close enough.
Joslin 2 insole and sole feel WAY more comfortable than any of the Dunks I own. Sturdy but soft/flexible too.
They are not huge but have puff in the right places like Dunks do (tongue and collar). The forefoot is not as thin as a Dunk but feels just as responsive as a Dunk may be up there.

In short, it's a good alternative, not a replacement for a dunk.

Those Joslin II's look very nice, this is tempting.

I used to skate dunks a lot but being what they are now, I haven't skated a pair since last year. I still have a pair of the Dunk hi X NBA (Cavs colorway) but I won't be skating these, I try to keep them nice and clean.

I really enjoyed the last 2 pairs of Kalis S, bought 2 pairs at 70% off and they were very nice and comfy, especially for the price. Let me know how you like them when you've skated these Joslins, and how they compare to Maranas. Loved the Maranas I had a couple years back, but haven't skated a pair in a while. I have to skate high tops now, because I have an ankle that needs all the support it can get, and high tops give me that tiny bit of extra security that I won't roll my ankle as easily, although it probably doesn't change much at all...  :-\
