those laces make those shoes pop more

Are the Aces heavier than Indys?

They are pretty much the same weight. Indy 149 (Standards) are 400g and Ace AF1 55 are 396g. Any kind of weight relieved indy would be lighter though.

I've got those same colour Rowans. Might have to steal your idea and throw some black laces in my own

Emerica Dissents, on my 2nd pair of these with one more pair on deck. good shoe but the sole is going faster than the suede. think I might try the Dose next and see how hard that Formula G compound or whatever is. Alcove CC is supposed to be on the same sole. Spanky G6 would definitely be cushy for my feet.

quality is second to none on the MIUSA stuff, and the 998's are amazing. I wasn't so lucky with my Made Responsibly pair..

These are probably my favorite material object I have owned as an adult..30 something years ago, I needed new basketball ball shoes and I begged my father to get me some Jordan's, we couldn't afford them but he said he would try to get the money together only if I didn't tell my mom how much they were. By the time he had the money M&M sporting goods no longer had the Jordan's in my size but they did have the Air trainer 1's. Since they weren't a basketball sneaker he didn't want to do it. But apparently I did a good job convincing him that they could be used for everything. I played 1 season of basketball and skated my Variflex every motherfucking day in those shoes. I found these for $39 the other day and I am gonna crack a beer and remember some more amazing selfless acts that my father did for me. I miss that man every damn day.
i donít think any of you are real, i think slap was invented by my mom to make me think people want to talk to me

Such a good story! Sorry about your dad, he sounded rad! That Polar colorway is so sick tho. I loved seeing Boserioís skating them.

I skate a lot of reebok's

This is the club legacy. It skates just like the regular club. Because of the rubber under the toe, I'd rate it a little higher. It could do without the bit of stitching by the baby toe, but other than that. A solid alternative if you just want a visually different shoe. I like the translucent soles on these.

Thanks for the love man..very much appreciated! It's a hard road and it is kind of a weird thread for me to share the story in but I hoped you all might enjoy it because we all love shoes.. :) I just skated them for an hour and ironically they skate real good.

I got the spanky g6 now and itís comfy as hell I bet if you look you can probably find some colorways on sell. Also I just ordered the wino cup sole has the same sole as the Spanky g6.

some cons slips i got on clearance a while back.  I did the old half-size-down, and they were tight as fuck.  unwearable.  i cut the straps and they ended up breaking in ok.  they're still pretty snug even without the straps.  gonna skate them til theyre dead then cut the tongues off and use them to cut the grass

I got these axion's a couple days ago and they're really good. I'm impressed with how well they fit and how comfortable they are. The lining in the shoe is a very soft almost velvet material. They skate good so far. They also come with a decent insole as well. I would definitely recommend them.

That's a really beautiful memory about your father @Fhk hu   Thanks for sharing it with us.
The SB Polar Air Trainer 1s look so cool too. That's awesome that you have a new pair in 2021 to skate.

On the fence because they are the stiffest uppers Iíve had in a hot minute. Bok ainít as generous with returns as Nike is so I canít take the tags off and wear em out a few times.

Itís not even the colorway. Just the silhouette itself. Not sure whatís the point of this version, itís more of a downgrade then a upgrade IMO. the Club C looked great as it is. But maybe they skate great...

I got em to skate, actually. Thereís suede on high traffic areas. But $55 is F4s and bearings and I have four pairs of skate shoes on hand anyway.
