Debating if I want to give 54mm f4 99a conicals or 54mm OJ 95a nomads a shot. Wanting to skate more street. My buddy id skate spots with moved so Iíve been just hitting parks and the DIY. But last weekend I went solo and found a few spots with  kinda Midwest crust and shitty rough asphalt.  Iíve never skated conicals. I want to be able to slide still. So Iím kinda leaning towards conical. But idk. Any pals have suggestions? Pros/cons
[close]

Split the difference and get some 97a Conicals Spits. You can't go wrong with those or the OJ Nomads. I think the 97a Spits might be a little faster though...

I would really like the classic 97a classics. I really like classics shape. But my local donít have any 97a spits.  They was gone so fast. I may try the other shop in town.

Thinking about the Polar 91 Jr. on 144 Indys. The only thing that's holding me back is the 6.5 tail and don't know how steep that is. Help me pals

never owned one but it looks pretty mellow to me
while cool-guying is a real phenomenon, studies show that 83% of all cool-guying incidents can be attributed to the cool-guyee being an awkward weirdo

Thanks @off

Another one, I am looking at way too often..

Is the Rowan Pro Shoe a bit more stiff and doesn't get floppy as the usual Vans Pro shoes?

They are definitely my second favorite vans shoe next to the new half cabs. You should get them.

Honestly between the two I would stick with blazers. iíve been skating my 002s and they are good but your feet donít nearly feel as locked in. also for some reason, the seam near the toe box rubs up on the top of one of my toes when i try kickflips. theyíre great shoes, just wish my heels were more locked in.
edit: also wish they wouldnít rub up on my toe. please fix that shit pontus

Me: I found skate Jesus.

Slap: Yeah, well maybe if he does the crucifix switch I will believe it.

Definitely worth it, even the cheap ones off AliExpress are decent.

My experience with the Last Resort wasnít great. I want to like the shoe and it looks great, but it has a tiny toebox which I found unskateable. I actually switched to some old Blazers I keep in my car midway through my first and only sessions with the LRs, and suddenly my toes werenít killing me and I could skate again.
