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.

I wore them for twelve hours yesterday. Probably the most comfortable shoe I own. Lots of support.

I will accept any US 9 shoes that you guys are sitting on, and in turn I will pay you with the sense of pride and accomplishment.

My 6 year run of nothing but Emerica Reynolds has come to an end.
Onto some Cons Fastbreak.
I know Cons sizing is all over the place. But these are TTS. Got a 9.5, same as what I wore in Emerica, and they fit good.
The sole is great. Plenty of protection. But still good board feel.
The upper is somewhat lacking in padding, for me anyways.
I have flat, fairly wide feet. But I'm having to crank these laces to keep my foot from sliding around. Then once I start skating and my feet start sweating, I have to re tighten them. Full on Rambo lace kit (do the kids still say that?). Not the best look. I'm sure alot of this is due to the smooth leather inside the collar of the shoe. I'm guessing the all suede versions would be better in this regard.
The synthetic material on the upper is nice and breathable. But not very durable.
Laces got shredded quick.
I'm not the type to use after market insoles. They seem to make the shoe too tight or my foot is too high in the shoe. But for those of you who do; these shoes have a glued in insole.
I probably wouldn't buy another pair; but I'm not hating them.

How did you blow through the inside of your right shoe before the outside of either? What is that from? I went half size down in the Fastbreaks, they feel a little awkward but I think a half size up would have been too big.
