I'm not a collab guy at all, but DC x Venture is one of the very rare exceptions where I think a collab makes sense. Copped these Manteca 4s for half off and love the fit.

Please let us know how they skate!
Manteca has been on my "to try" list but i gotta hold off , I've gotten waaaayy to many shoes recently.
[close]
I'd like to hear also how they skate
There hasn't been much feedback on the Manteca's around here
Someone must be skating them

Great shoe.

First session was an absolute blast! I mainly skated vulcs in the past 6 months, but I'm pretty sure these beauties made me into a cupsole guy. They somehow don't lack in boardfeel even though they're pretty supportive shoes, and the flick is real nice. Landed several personal nbds because it all just clicked immediately. From what I can tell from one 4 hour session they seem to hold up pretty well too. I'm afraid you're going to have to get some sooner or later, Moe.
That is 100% the answer I was looking for / afraid of.

Pumas ive been skating for about 3 months, adidas skated about 1 month

Pumas have great board feel and nice and bendy but not too floppy - flick ages like wine when I first got them felt like I had soaped up grip or something now they flick like worn in vans - like you can really feel the flick or something lol . They hurt to jump in though.

Adidas we’re good but too many seems that easily fe thread after like 10 ollies so lots of shoe goo - I also like how they skate better without the Velcro strap which always just gave me worse hot pockets




pull over before you crash for thinking this was just another mixtape.

Been trying to find the 440's in my size for a long time to check if the hype was real.

One of the most comfy shoes I ever tried out of the box. I need to find a pair of hi's to skate them as soon as possible.

Damn, these are cool. Are the DC Manteca 4 true to size? I want to try them but I am not sure which size to get since I never had DCs. I am a US 7 in Emerica and a US 7.5 in Lakai

I'd say they fit true to size, yeah. I'm usually a size 12 and the Mantecas fit perfectly. I've never had Emericas or Lakais, so I can't speak to how they might compare.

You're in Germany, right? DC is currently running a sale on Mantecas if you want to give them a shot: https://www.dcshoes.de/herren-kollektion-manteca/#?intcmp=manteca

I think there was just too much twerking.  No serious organization can contain that level of twerking.

Made myself make the switch from Jordan 1 Highs to SB Dunk Highs.  I will say the new molds for the SB Dunk feel a lot more comfy than older pairs, and a lot more grippy than I remember.  The fold over stitch around the toebox definitely holds up better than a raw edge shoe.  I have a lot of pairs on deck to skate, and interested how a full grain leather version will feel compared to the suede/twill... They 100% hold up better than a Jordan 1, however I will say, Jordan 1s have probably the best board feel of any cupsole shoe out there... albeit pricey

White leather half cabs with the tongues all poofy for '94 Freddy.

I've got some original white leathers with the black sole from maybe '02 but the material in the heel dry-rotted, wish there was some way to restore them (I'm sure there is, just don't have the time).

my man. also, check out the chive half cabs, for some reason the tongue on them is like 3x as thick as normal cabs (at least mine were)

yes had the same experience super weird

I actually got married in these so they've been stashed for a bit, but going to get them in the rotation

That’s awesome!  Pontus should send you a box for inviting his shoes to the wedding

I hope your spouse didn’t read anything into you wearing last resorts to your wedding

LOL never thought about that. Nah we had a pretty casual desert wedding and I wanted to be comfortable. She was cool with it

Congrats whenever the wedding was.   Seems like a sensible shoe choice rather than a “get married in skate shoes” sentiment.
Technically it is literally a “get married in skate shoes” move but getting married in skate shoes is an absolute sigma male move, god bless you and your union my brother

still wearing those dress blue half cab 92s as chiller but they bother me.

I keep thinking they would break in but I think its not even the insole, I don't like the stiff heel shank and extra rubber duracap it feels like a brick on my foot.

Anyone have any advice or should I just throw in the towel.

My tyshawns were not breaking in FOREVER but finally became comfy despite being snug but these half cabs are made of granite

I always thought the Kwalk 1 was pretty close to a Vansified Emerica Reynolds. Maybe try on a pair of Low Vulcs as that's just the Reynolds Vulc renamed after he left.

Also there are full suede Kwalks and versions with a fabric side panel so maybe that will help? I personally don't think they are any more oveny than any other shoe in either version, at least not on a Nyjah level.

Finally on the foot prison dress blue HC 92s, I've been running a Nike React insole in some other broken in Half Cabs and it's been nice but it lowers the foot just a little bit. I didn't realize the Pop Cush insoles had so much heel lift. Maybe you could try a insole that is the same shape but isn't as high? So far brand new Half Cabs and React insoles haven't worked out and I've only been able to put them into the shoes I have already broken in.
