For some reason this company popped up when I googled Es Shoes. Looks like they're driving shoes but the silhouettes kinda look like minimalist skate shoes. There's even a cool cupsole model they have

The Shift, Avenue and Apex look cool

Not that I'd get any of these but I thought of this thread immediately.
Driving shoes usually have a super thin but stiff sole, no? Could be good if you break them in first, but with those prices? Hell nah.

Reebok CrossFit lite lo. These are so nice and wide in the toe, and the suede holds up well. Reebok discontinued them (bastards!) but not before I bought 3 pairs. The only weird thing is there's a little edge that sticks out past the sole right by the little toe (for weight lifting stability I guess?) Once I wore that away, these were my favorite shoes to skate in.

some of the best skating I ever did was in these.

This has me cracking up, what exactly does Black Flag have to do with measuring your dick starting behind ya nuts?

Skateboarding is nothing but a game to find the right fits to appear like you're a proportional human being instead of a midget or a giant.

Any feedback on how Sambas skate?

i had a pair 5 years ago, it was the regular samba model, not adv. all suede. it was a great shoe, it had another layer of suede under the t-toe which they don't do with samba advs. two of my friends skated them later on and they seemed to have a similar experience as me. there are 2 different samba models out rn, there's the samba og and another one, i don't remember which one was better but one of them was of worse quality than the other. i'm pretty sure @Sk.A.T.A.N would know

Personally found the (dark) gum sole on the thrifted sambas I had a bit to "hard", slippery. But other people who had them usually preffered them over the skate versions, which I never tried myself

So thereís actually two versions of ADVs:
1st one (discontinued) ->


- just overall not that great if Iím being honest. Skated it a couple times and it bagged out way too much. A ďSuicide seamĒ at the Ollie area made it not durable at all. Also looks like a bootleg samba  :-\

2nd and current one ->


- Those are basically just an up specíd version of the regular samba, which is already a great shoe on its own. I think the materials are a bit more tough, also they come with a better insole. Iím not super sure but I think they are a bit more padded too, at least looks like it on my friendís foot. Itís a bit hard to tell them apart from the regular version but the most identifiable diference is the trefoil in the tongue of ADVs is just an outline while itís a filled trefoil in regular versions.

I'd love the ADVs but they seem perpetually sold out everywhere.

Regular Vans slip ons are almost all canvas and you'll have a big ollie hole in them after 1 session. Not recommend for skate.

Yeah if you don't ollie or flick in them. Plenty of simple transition, sidewalk surfing can be done in em, but not durable for any substantial tricks or wear

Anybody had Nike court visions? They look like a kind or affordable and getable jordan 1/ vandal/whatever mid 80s Nike Basketball shoe. I watch that rose anvil channel time to time and often he does Nike's and they're fake leather and the worst shoes I've ever had were non sb dunks in the early 00s so as much as I like the look I'm worried about the general quality/skateability
