Just got the low ones in the mail. I usually skate nb cups cause I m old but I m seriously impressed by the feel and look. First time my girlfriend asked if they made them in women’s sizes because she thinks they look so good.

Been skating them for a week now.

The insole has actually adapted a lot more to the shape of my foot and it's very very comfy.

Not a lot of damage being done but I haven't flipped my board much, but the grip is great.

As pointed out by a friend, this shoe has all the best features from Cons, Nike and Vans combined.


Very happy with them overall, I finally got the black on black too, stoked!
The '80s were the worst period. You had these horrible pop bands growing their hair and calling themselves metal.

DLX has the black/white VM001 down to mens 5 (roughly women’s 6.5) if you’re looking.
SPB!

Just got a pair of the blue/black hi tops on sale via Paradeworld/303 boards.  Went down 1/2 size to 9.5.  Gonna reiterate what others said, these things are solid, well built, look and fit great.  Feel broken in out of the box.  These might just get me off the teat of “big shoe” for a little bit

New model! Looks like it has a Gazelle toe.

Thanks for the heads up, I´m in Europe though. My local had them in girls sizes as well, my gf already tried them but she would need a half size, so she passed.

7Hills in Rome (Italy) has small sizes of the first run.

the sketch does but the actual shoe looks more like a cons toecap or even old skool.

The T-Toe in that Sharpie doodle would be way cooler than those yellow jawns on the assembly line... all those are is an Old Skool with an early 80's adidas-ish wavy eyerow. Make that T-Toe happen, Pontus!!

I don’t think it was meant to be a “T” toe cap like gazelle.. it is just the perspective of the drawing. Definitely made some revisions during production samples it seems. The texture on the foxing looks great.

there's no way those drawings and those production samples are the same shoe.  It's a fundamentally different toe and sidewall (ollie area) design.
