Couple Half Cab '92's up on the Vans Canada site that I haven't seen anywhere else. The blue ones are Vault (non-removable insole), the red ones are from the Skate line (Popcush). Red ones are not in stock yet, but the pictures are up.

Is there an actual difference with the Half-Cab '92s? When I saw that name on the Reynolds ones I assumed it was just an homage of the colorway or something.

Ah interesting. I've got the Reynolds ones on ice right now and they didn't feel wildly different to my Skate Half-Cabs, but those are also pretty worn so it's hard to do a direct A/B comparison.

Those Lakais seem to be getting a positive response here, but I don't see it. No way those are better walking around shoes than an average level Nike/NB/Adidas shoe of that type, right? 'Who is this for?' is a valid question about Lakai in general, but I really don't see the appeal in those. And I'm speaking as someone who knows what Lakai is. Any non-skater sees those, and just thinks they're from Wal Mart.

The side and back panels are slightly different as well. At least on my pairs. Not able to take p photo of them both right now though.

When I buy shoes, itís usually based on how cool they look rather than walkability. These look cool to me. Unless wearing them actively works against my feet, I think itís fine.

That reminds me of when my friend got his first touchscreen smartphone and described it as ďthose phones that you play with your fingersĒ as if he used his elbows on the previous phone or something like that.  ;D

Either way, those lakais are tight, would 100% rock them!

Unpopular opinion, but I really like this colorway. These vaguely remind me of those Gravis Dylan hi-tops from way back.

I'm excited that they're keeping the Half Cab 92s in the line too. Something about the paneling on those look so good.

Was going to say the same thing. Take that vans tab off and put a gravis IV logo and people would love it. I like em but I know they are probably sweat boxes. My feet would be drenched in those with all that leather, a rubber layer under that, and no ventilation holes... no thanks.

Haha, gotta agree. If we're saying leave the runners to the sport brands, then yeah, leave the skate shoes to the skate shoe brands. The comments about what non-skaters or some chick would think just show how much people are buying shoes to gain approval from others. I actually like the look of those much better than the average sport brand runner with much worse color combos/panelling.

Yes, 100%.  I actually started to write that in my initial reply then deleted it.  I went through all of 2020 not skating in any major sports brand shoes (although I gotta say that kinda sucked because the core brand vegan options that year were few and far between)

all good mate, Iím in your (vegan) boat too. Iíve never bought Nike/ cons, but Iím partial to NB and the 420. Defs want to give emerica more love with their upcoming options.
Would still rock that Lakai as a chiller though

I always try on every shoe we get in the shop I work at, and we carry a lot of NB# - somehow those are the most uncomfortable shoes (maybe tied with Vans) that I've ever tried on, consistently. Must be my feet, cause that's the exact opposite of what most customers/other skaters say. They feel super hard, often too narrow in the midfoot. There was one court style shoe they came out with (22) that almost worked but looked really weird once I tried it on, and we never got the colorway without the big N on the side which is a deal breaker for me. Cannot do that big N.

It's funny to go into the NB# thread and see how all over the place people are with the sizing on the Tiago. Some people have to go up half a size, others down half a size, lots of heel slip comments/issues. I've tried every color of that shoe on and had to go up half a size in every one because it was too tight lengthwise, yet even in the tight size I got heel slip with it laced to the top and cranked. Seems weird considering it even had obvious heel lock bumps inside. Ahhh well, I think that shoe is super ugly anyway - doesn't even look like a skate shoe at all.
