First pair of cupsoles, last 5 pairs were vulcs and it's definitely growing on me. Adjusted to the change in board feel within 2 sessions, grip and release on flicks took a while to get used to but I actually prefer it. Having more padding was definitely welcome and my feet were not screaming at the end of the session. The sole and outsole felt pretty durable too, it would be a few more session before I would need to break out the Shoe Goo. TTS, got them 1/2 a size bigger so my foot wasn't as secure as I would have liked.

Only gripe with the shoe was it only had 3 lace loops keeping the shoe together and they were exposed so they got wore down pretty quick. Had to save them with Shoe Goo, if they tore I would have had to retire them early.

Can see myself wearing a cupsole down the line, if anyone has a recommendation for a hybrid that does both (board feel + grip) I would love to try that.

4 sessions in - one and done on these shoes. They started out pretty snug but are getting looser the more broken in they are, today my foot felt like it was swimming round the shoe and I ended up tweaking both ankles during today's session. Not horrible ones, but the kind that set you back 1-2 days in recovery. Having only 3 lace loops didn't help getting the shoe more secure.

I know they made the Kalis Lite for "chillers" but seeing the S from time to time online always made me think this was the designated Kalis chiller. As you said the lace loops make it damn near impossible to get a tight fit in them. Sucks about the ankles, I'm nursing one right now as well, hope for a speedy recovery for you.

Agreed, they are excellent chillers especially for a wider foot, paired with an orthopedic insole are excellent walking shoes. The lace loop design definitely sucks, if you blow any of them out you can forget about a secure fit. The tweak looked worse than it was, an ankle brace and ankle strength / conditioning reduced a major tweak to a minor one.
Did any of you guys ever notice that if you took off the end "er" from his name, moved the "b" to after the "i" and then added an "l" to the "b" that you just moved, you'd spell "Bible"?

Anyone know this colorway?   It doesn’t look like the typical version and only google results I get are the women’s version that has a different sole

skated some nike sb all court ck1 over the last couple of months. now they're quite trashed and i finally came through the thick rubber toe cap. also, hole in the sole, and small holes on the sides. they held up so well and skated so good. i love these shoes. glad that i have another pair as a backup but also sad that you won't be able to buy these anymore, i'd guess.

Definitely got your moneys worth with those toe caps!

The old toe cap seemed to come and then go pretty quickly, unless they have more shoes in the works, but that extra bit of rubber goes a long way, from what I have seen.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

It's sick to see people skate shoes with toecaps this hard. I've never been able to get used to having one on any shoes i've tried

Sci Fi Sk8 Hi chillers. All my chillers got me doing foot fashion shows for myself. Glad I swooped these up when they released.

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.

@Count Jackula nice 1010s. Would you post some pics of your paintings in the art thread?

Sure when I have some spare time! The only one thatís mine is kinda hidden behind my leg. The pink one is @ian_de_beer the blue one is my friend @catmockus and the other one to the left is my girlfriends old painting. Thanks for the interest!

Got those too! Actually surprised with much I like them. I wasn't too sold on the BB4000 model, though it looked like a less cool version of the Club C but in hand they are killer, like a puffed out basketball brother! I like the fit and shape of them too, bet they would are killer to skate but now I don't wanna ruin them...
I got the matching Dime Ecce Homo T-shirt to go along with them aswell ahah (Post in "Post your fit" thread incoming 8) )

Could be that or maybe an attack position or possibly a slow dance..either way look out!
