So Slap is a dad-foot fetish site now, got it.
[close]
always has been
[close]
I wonder what they thought it was?

My Rowans that idk if I can skate again until I learn how to actually commit to tricks off of stuff. Vans and tossing away tricks is not good for dad feet apparently.
[close]
Funny, my foot felt safe as fuck in rowans and I have been committing to way more tricks in them. went back ot some old emerica cups (spanky) and my feet fell way more at risk.
[close]
I was loving them as i was skating. But when I got in my car and gave up for the day it became very apparent that I bruised up the balls (if thats what they're even called) of my feet. Especially the inner "ball" part of my back foot. I assume that was from being a poosay and not getting it back on the board on multiple occasions. I'm not going to give up on them because they definitely have great boardfeel. Its gotta be user error if Im going to be honest with myself.
I mean feet vary so don't hurt yourself trying to adapt. That shoe just works perfect for me is all im saying.

I wish I didn't have to look at your sig in every thread tbh. That shit is annoying and usually so are your posts.

Thank you man, I really like being able to flex the soles of these for some tricks, so I would like to see them work out. I really dont skate parks with people very often so I think I was getting hyped and trying stuff I normally wouldn't. I dont know if a cupsole would of had the same outcome. I do know that landing back on the board would of though!  ;)

Emerica Dicksons. Heel cup is as floppy as other Emerica vulcs, my heel keeps rolling from side to side (partly my ankle problem, too). I've worn vulcs where my heel stays stable, though. The g6 insole is actually narrower than the interior of the shoe and I can feel the insole's outer edge actually rubbing my 5th toe. They use cardboard on the inside part of the sole. Flick feels awesome and I can see the shoe lasting longer than normally thanks to flickshield. Not buying Emericas in the future.

those Supras actually look pretty good! wish I could still skate white leather shoes without imagining how dumb I look in them. I always feel like I don't have the innate cool factor going on to get away with them.

Once they're all scuffed up its less of a problem. When they're fresh i cant help but feel like an exchange student from italy.

This color of the Carroll is really nice in person. The image on the box shows it with a gum sole but it's all white. This is my 3rd pair of Lakai's and the other two sucked so I'm really hoping these work out. I wear 10.5 and had to get an 11, which is still snug - just a heads up.

Damn this actually made me laugh out loud.

On a side note i've been putting off getting a pair. There's cheap ones in yellow on a local shoe site, can't wear yellow but maybe i'll paint em.

Funny, I hadnít thought of that, but thereís definitely something similar there in the silhouette. Back of the shoe reminds me a little of the BA Savier.

Update after one day of wearing the Carrol's.

Had to swap out the relatively nice Lakai insole for a thin, but wider one I had because they shoes are so tight that I needed more room, even though I went a half size up. The wider insole was because I'm flat footed, so my foot was overhanging the midsole a lot where a normal person's arch is, and it was super uncomfortable after not long.

They actually feel like they'd be good to skate in. Kind of a perfect thickness cupsole.

Are the straps necessary for them to stay on your foot?

Strap holds up great. Regular slip ons would always hurt top of my foot when they were new and when they loosen up they never felt secure. Love the design that under the strap its regular stiched in tongue. Adds so much comfort right from the start.

take pic of said tongue? Are there centering straps for it? Seems like its a little bulky around the collar/tongue with the collar padding too. Kinda weird.. minimal paneling/slip on but cup hybrid sole and strap/tongue paneling

yeah. Suede and construction seems decent enough but itís a pretty bare bones vulc I wouldnít pay full retail for. IMO.

There were $23 pairs on eBay (just like the nb 440s) like a month ago. Probably could find em for cheap somewhere.

Tongue is pretty slim and it has little padding. It also has centering straps. Can't really rock them without strap tho. I wouldn't say its that bulky, atleast not for me. Not for everybody for sure but i'm stoked.

Cushioning seems like anything Vans makes with Popcush. Didn't really notice anything different compared to other Vans vulc shoes.
