Has anyone tried the new reinforced halfcabs? Halfcabs are basically the only shoe I skate, but I heard the sizing is slimmer than the pro.
Are they any less bulky in the upper either?
Wear a 9.5 in the pro because I like a snug fit.

There have been some mixed reactions to them, it would seem, but if you cannot try them on in person, get the same size you normally wear.
[close]
Same size as the pros. They're pretty rigid and shitty feeling though. I don't recommend.
[close]
they are rigid but i disagree on shitty, they will be more durable in the long run and dont potatoe out.
[close]

Agreed. All my old halfcabs are super flaccid. I have one pair of Rowan pros just as old and they still feel nice and firm so Iím hoping the new halfcabs last longer in the toe area and donít get floppy after a month like the rowans.
[close]

I like the new half cabs. I think they skate good. People complain about everything. I have a pointy kickflip and the new halfcabs are lasting much longer in the toe area then my previous which were just regular half cabs (not new skate line or former pro line) with glued insole peeled out and replaced with rowan pro popcush sole. New halfcabs toe area is a definite improvement, especially if you have a pointer flick. My last pair just from doing so many flip tricks, on the toe i had a little slit where i could see where the white and the tan of the waffle sole were starting to separate from wearing the rubber down so much from just flicking (I'm used to this happening honestly because I love og halfcabs). The new half cab rubber lasts much longer and it does have duracap / similar sole features compared to rowan pros so I would assume you will like them, but at the same time I'm an anonymous stranger on the internet who you knows nothing about you. You should get your regular half cab size.

Only weird thing that I already mentioned and I know has happened to other people is that on the very back of the collar of the shoe on the outside right above the little checked patch, you can get a little slit/blow out where you can see the stuffing. It's very small and does not impact how the skate and hard to even notice happens. I only noticed because a friend asked me if it happened to mine too and it only happened to one of my shoes. I only known of this happening on the black pair with white sole and it might have happened because that back part of the top part of the collar is canvas. Again it doesn't really change the shoe and I wouldn't of even saw that it happened if my buddy didn't point it out but I know of at least 2 people (not counting me because it was just 1 of the shoes) that it's happened to with this colorway and again it's most likely because the top part of the collar is canvas.
[close]
That heel slit happened with my pair too. It happened while I was forcing my foot into the shoe without loosening the laces (pulled on the heel too hard and hear a rip).

This happened on mine as soon as I took them out of the box and put them on. Weird.

Full pic of the Dime Vans Skate Mid Skools.



That can't be nylon for the side panels, can it?

anytime someone comments on shoes in general, that guy has some weird shit to say.

Lol, bringing up some pseudo drama over a week later? Just because I questioned straight up crocs in a skate shoe convo? Sorry that I personally offended you or something enough for you to kook me and requote a long quote chain of a thing that was put to rest?

there we go, some more weird shit. lol
This has me cracking up, what exactly does Black Flag have to do with measuring your dick starting behind ya nuts?

Skateboarding is nothing but a game to find the right fits to appear like you're a proportional human being instead of a midget or a giant.

That must be some paper thin leather that has the texture of fabric...

... It's Nylon

... Leave it to Dime to ruin completely good shoes.... Again

Not to blow up the feed...
looks like cons has a fastbreak color way coming out

Iíll be hyped when the red accented ones LL and Cromer have been skating come out.hopefully they donít have that weird chody toe.

Love the way this shoe skates, but that nylon and cheap ass fake leather is a fucking joke. Literally blew a hole in them in one session. This colorway is rad, but we need suede.
.....Nah

this is my favorite shoe I've skated in the last 10 years and i agree.  I would even be down for a leather/suede combo.  that nylon shit is trash for skating

I guessing those are Carroll's next shoe. He already ripped off Half Cabs in the past, I wouldn't mind.

I talk shit, but there aren't a whole lot of mid top cups in the market right now, so these could have potential
That being said lakai/crail/craig does do a good job fucking easy things up.

Itís probably Simons shoe.  I donít think Carrollís had a shoe for a bit, but I canít profess to follow Lakai particularly closely

The brown ones are sick,
id try em out or maybe the Telford. Saw someone yesterday skating the black sabbath ones and they looked pretty decent

Hope Lakai can bring a good mid top cup if the Fastbreak really is getting phased out

That would be a reasonable assumption on their part.
Except for the original Manchester, my favorite Lakais don't have a big ass flair on them.. Staple, Soca, Fade, Howard 1, Carroll 1, Johnston 1, Johnson 1.
