I used to love Adidas, and from 2009 till 3 years ago they were definitely the coolest skateboard shoes brand, but all their new designs have been very boring lately apart from the Lucas shoe :

Because they contribute towards more Busenitz footage, I care. Otherwise, not particularly.

Never had a pair as they're a bit too narrow for my wide ass feet. They look nice though.

Love the look, was never able to try on; they seem narrow?

Really hard to find any colorway in this model since the indoor model.

The Tyshawn mids are one of my favorite shoes, they just haven't put out a good color in a while so i've been skating other things. Agree that a lot of their shoes look the same but they seem to skate well.

I just got the puig indoor brown. The suede is super soft. I hope itíll last more than a few sessions to be honest, I really struggle to find nice looking shoes that I can wear at work then at the park

I made it about 6 sessions before they completely deflated and started falling apart. No wonder theyíre always on sale.

The Schmoofoil slip ons are pretty great for daily use and skating. Definitely recommend replacing the insole with an FP or something if youíre over 30 but theyíre light years more comfortable than the vans skate slip.

Any logo the front is a hard pass for me on a slip.

I skated the Busenitz Vulcs for 6-7 years. Havenít found a shoe I liked since and have been rotating brands. Thinking about trying the Sambaís like my skate shoe wrapped to my feet and sort of mold with it. Idk

If they hadnít taken the side stripe off the midsole on the Busenitz vulcs I would still have them in my rotation but the version 2 without it looks bad with that much white all together on the side, almost like platform shoes. They did have the best videos and team for awhile but have kind of dropped the ball the last couple years and New Balance put Reynolds on so they are getting my money for the foreseeable future.

Those look fire, ngl. The only thing I'd call out is the overhang that's happening on the arch, the sole looks narrow.

Mesh near the eyestay? Colorway is real, real nice.

Been on cups for a hot minute but wanted something trimmer, so I picked up a pair of Noras on sale....did a search on the forum, didn't pull up anything of note...

Gotta say, out of the box I knew they were going to be on point. After the first session, sleeper shoe for me.

Skated great, with zero break in and that toe box is shaped well/wide where it counts AND they're gum (I don't feel white/black/green or w/e color soles grip well at all by comparison). They remind me of a bulkier Puig Premiere, of which I skated many pairs.

Time will tell if my knees and the shoes hold up butr man, waaay better than the AS-1s I've been skating.

Has anyone skated the Tyshawn 2's yet?

I grabbed a pair but I'm hesitant to actually skate them because after standing on my board with mob grip the sole feels like it has very little to no grip. I know theres sometimes a break in period, however I'm usually an NB guy and any fresh NB shoe if you try and move your foot around on mob grip they don't move they're so grippy.

If anyone has any insights let me know!

Seems like the shoe was DOA on these forums (I've a few homies that are shoe nerds and they passed on it); T2, Ishod2, Vertanawww, lots of misses it feels like.

NB# just killing it is why. What does the T2 offer over NB# offerings? Serious question.

Personally, I love the look of the T2 but after trying it on, I wouldn't skate it. Chillers maybe.

The tyshawns 2 are super low shoes.
Almost like Vans Era or a football shoe. The ankle is really exposed.
It doesnt feel protective at all.
A way better option is the forum low or even the rivalry (non skate)
