What?! I found these to skate amazing.

Not that they skated bad or anything but the sole on my first bloods went completely bald in like 2 weeks and I got a hole through the insole and they barely have a month of skating.

Lakais with the soles falling off recently.

As far as worst ever I remember I bought these on a Friday and by Sunday I could see my toe. The seventh model was also garbage.

I guess I couldn't get used to them quick enough, and my Dunks which I had at the time felt a lot better and more comfortable as well.

Savier John Rattray's. Really slippery leather, no grip, but looked awesome so I kept 'em.

Vans Rowley Shams. I had two pairs that I hunted around Austria for, and I couldn't wait to go home and skate them. That turned out to be a sad day.

1) Converse All Stars.  I went through two pair the first two weeks I was learning how to skate.  Maybe they were good for skating before the ollie was invented, but not now.

2) Emerica Mike Vallely's (1999?).  The stitching on the inside of the toe was such that it would yank my toenails on my big toes up, and cause my toes to bleed.  It's just insane that anything like that ended up on the market.  I trashed them after a couple of weeks.

3) Vans Rowleys (2002).  They were durable, but they were SO uncomfortable just as shoes, every step I took was painful.

Jeez. Yeah, that just looks like a really defective shoe. Granted, I haven't skated those or any other Fallens, but that just looks inexcusable. Like, there's no way that would get put up for sale.

For me-worst shoes were the Adidas Stan Smith skates right when Adidas started getting back into skating. Not even sure why I got them. There was no board feel and they just felt super lumpy and heavy. I had a pair of Lakai Jerichos that I've complained about before which had a sole that fell apart very quickly, but except for that, I actually really liked how they skated. Other than that, I don't think I've been too disappointed with any of my shoes. At least none that I can remember.

Lakai Carroll 4



Pretty much the same as the Telford. Piece of shit.
seconded. sole feels like cardboard after one skate, complete trash. 

also the 2nd version of the es K1's - there was something special about them that always made you roll your ankle.

I'm surprised that the Bruins and Reynolds 3's are getting some hate, I love both those shoes.

The only shoes that I ever really hated skating in were Vans slip-ons (they were canvas, so that was my bad) and half cab pros. The half cab pros fucking ruled the first couple times I skated them, but they started hurting my feet really bad and rubbing them really weirdly to the point that I developed these bizarre callouses on my big toes and one side of my heel.
Look I'm not selling anything that doesn't have my jizz on it. I don't care how much is offered.

Gazelle Skates.

Its crazy to see just how much people's opinions can vary on these kinds of issues. For example, I loved my Gazelles. I know the grip wore off super fast, but after that happened to me, I just skated them a little longer and the sole underneath it softened up and became grippy enough for me. I got the perfect amount of board feel with them without them being so thin that my feet, back, etc. started to hurt. And they always lasted me a good amount of time. Gazelle skates actually are in my list of best/favorite shoes I've ever skated.

The Circa CX101.

Fuck everything about this shoe. I got 4 pairs for free and anything free I thought was great. Wrong. Ankle rolling machines. Narrow heel and footbed that just turned everything into sprained ankles. I gave the rest of them to my Dad and he wore them when he went fishing.

The Circa MA20I'mQuittingAnywaySoHere'sAShittyShoe

The MA707 was awesome. This shoe was fucking completely terrible. The sole always seemed too thick. Whatever the fuck the upper of this specific colorway was made out of - it was terrible. Some weird hybrid rubber thing. I had one pair of the black suedes and they were better, but still the shoe felt awful. I can understand why Mark immediately crossed over to Globe after putting his name on this shoe.

The worst shoe I've ever skated.

These fuckers were the pits.

They were comfortable and felt fine until all the stitching around the toe cap broke and the little top panel just came up and you could see your foot.

Really? I liked this shoe, other than the grip, it was a great shoe. I thought the insoles have enough protection for being a vulc.
