From what I've noticed , womens definitely appreciate a decent scent. Also know that they depreciate when you smell bad, which is my usual style. From skating or working on the house

How's the fit/toe box on the berle pro? Been looking at low tops for summer and have only heard and read bad things about this shoe.

Wish a shop near me had them to try on myself.

Personally, I like em. First off, theyíre heavy SOBs. But since I mostly ride pools and transition and not jumping off shit, the weight is moot. As for the toe box, itís wide. Which is nice because I have a wide foot. And it being a lowtop, the Berle was my go to shoe for just going around and walking in. The sole is grippy, but the complaint about it is the waffle design make it a magnet to pebbles.

Overall, I liked skating the Berle more so than the Walker 1. I want to compare it to the Crocketts, but thatíll be after Iím done skating the Rowans.

Awesome, thank you for the reply and insight. I wouldn't say I have wide feet but some shoes definitely rub my pinky toe, so knowing there's room in the berle means instant buy for me. Most vans have a roomy toe box but just wanted to be sure since like I said, I can't physically try them on anywhere.

The Berle Pro, because of that thick and heavy sole and wide toe box, have made some of the most comfortable work shoes I have had in years. Skating in then would be unconscionable to me though.

I haven't worn vans in a really long time due to foot injuries but got these on sale and they're more comfortable than any vans I wore in the past. Seems to be more support all around than I remember in the half cabs I used to wear. There is plenty of room in the toe box. The Accels I picked up have a tight ass toe box that took a few sessions to spread out. I haven't skated the Berle yet but for wearing, they're pretty sweet. They do seem to run a bit long, I wear 10.5-11, measuring about a thumb width between big to and tip of shoe for comfort. These have about 2 thumb width distance but aren't floppy. Only thing I'm not sure about is the sewed insole.

Got my topxmas box from the corner store, should have had it like 3 weeks ago but he was holding it for me until I got back from Texas and I forgot to tell him to ship it. Such a great shop, definitely one of my favorites. Hooked me up with the really cool collectible cup, a free scumco hoody, and the coolest shop sticker ive ever seen. Oh and the boards are sick too.

Full haul:
- 8.25 Getz (already have one of these from the first small release but its on a really nice fade stain so I never skated it.. Got this one to skate)
- 8.25 Decades movie poster collage (love 80s movies so this graphic is amazing)
- Venture 5.2 hi hollows (for 8.1 DOA flats)
- Thunder red 90a truck rebuild kit
- Hoody, Cup, and Stickers

Definitely check them out. If you have questions hit em up on insta, he usually answers really quickly.

https://thecornerstoreskateshop.bigcartel.com/

Also got 2 strangelove decks. 8.25 elves from southside skateshop in Houston and 8.25 heart skull was a trade with Fletch from DOA. Elves shape is awesome and I'm trying to decide whether to skate it or sell it on ebay because apparently the hypebeast kids are paying $300 for them. Heart skull im pretty sure im going to skate, although those go for like a buck fifty too. Although I'm glad Cliver is hopefully making bank, I want strangelove to stop making dunks so people stop buying the decks as a fashion accessory.

I haven't decided yet.  I'm a big fan of the 8.5 dimensions.  I might double up so I can skate one and keep another for the wall.

feel like Iíve heard theyíre lighter weight so might be a bit thin for these winters in the northeast. Interested to see how they fit length wise

I wore a pair of mine with thermals under the other day. They were fine for just wearing, going from car to store, probably wouldn't do that if I was planning to skate/be outside for a long time though. I'm 30 minutes outside of philly, it's been mid 30's the last week for reference.

Iím riding a TOPX right now. I really like the shape and the wood. Most def gonna check that out.

They're Generator/BBS wood and the mold they use is probably the most common stock one for popsicles, so if you ever want another one but can't find a TOPX I can probably help you track one down. A lot of smaller brands and shop decks use it so its usually pretty easy to find one. I have a Traffic Luke Malaney deck thats the same so I would guess most traffic boards use it as well. Just beware that some of the other theories distribution brands (including theories themselves) have been using clutch due to covid making it really hard to get wood. I think theres a clutch shape that's very similar but with a slightly longer nose although I don't remember which one it is.

Theres also a pretty cool company from Portland called Merde that I think uses the same bbs mold.. the one I have is a little mellower than my terror boards but I'm pretty sure its just because its a bottom of the stack board. Most of their graphics are really cool and the guy who owns it is super friendly and knowledgeable.

Basically if you see a generator/bbs deck thats the same dimensions  (the 8.25" is 31.8" with a 14.25" wheelbase) and its not from one of the big guys who have their own molds (bakerboys, deluxe, element, FA etc) theres a good chance itll be the same as the terror one.

What trucks are you riding? I tend to have issues with BBS tails and high trucks but I skated the traffic with Ace 44s and really liked it. I'm going to try Venture 5.6 hollows on this one since they're only slightly higher but if I end up struggling like I usually do then I might try films to see if the mid-height/short wheelbase combo works as well as it did with aces.

Awesome to know. Thank You.

I'm on the 8.75 with a 14.5 WB on Ace 55s for transition purposes.

I want to try one with a shorter WB on my Ace 44s.

We're back into lockdown so I ordered some stuff I really don't need via curbside pickup from the local as they're getting hammered with the loss of a lot of snowboard/snow gear sales this time of year (ski hills have been shut down). Got a Darkroom Purgatorio and some Dickies 874s. Board is a tank at 33x8.8 so not sure if it will be a wall hanger or will be heading back to get some 159s in the new year.

Happy New Year's everyone - stay safe and be well.
