Bought these as a Christmas gift. 1 month of casual wear the eyelets you put the laces through started popping off and breaking.for style its a great look. Now I have to find a shoe repair that can hopefully replace the broken eyelets.

I really like this shoe. It's quite warm, thus far it has held up to one of the coldest Wisconsin winters on record. They have great traction due to their relatively soft rubber sole. And they look great when worn with just about anything.
They are very comfortable IF you get the right size. They fit very small. If you range in shoe sizes depending on the brand, absolutely go with the upper limit of your shoe sizes. I where anywhere from 10 to 11.5, I initially ordered a 10.5 because the other sizes were out of stock, but they were far far too small. My buddy who wears 9's said they were border line uncomfortably small on his feet. I then ordered 11.5s in monk's robe brown when they were in stock and they fit great. Still slightly narrow, but I have fairly narrow feet. If you had wide feet, may want to consider another option.

I skate everyday. For hours. As a commuter, and for fun. I wore many brands of shoes prior to this one. I have burned through two pairs and have two pairs on reserve, and I would not hesitate to repurchase at any price if I could find my size. 1. Zero break in - no calluses or blisters for even the most sensitive feet. 2. Great arch supports without being annoyingly high or flat. 3 . They breathe. Soft suede, almost indestructible. 4. Grippy soles/. I have used these down hill, on slides, skateboarding, longboarding, board dancing, etc. 5> Attractive. 6. Two types of laces. I only use the brown suede though.6 . Don't look like ugly skate shoes, nor as flashy as most juvenile looking shoes. 7. They are flexible but long wearing. I can lean my heels all the way back on a turn, and stand on my toes for a frontal turn. I rely on my feet and legs for concrete surfing. A too stiff shoe would not perform, these rate 5 stars. 8. Quality. the soles are like totally psychothane. You can footbreak and still have tread. Your pushing foot looks like your resting foot. These are well made.
9. I love them so much, I wish they would sponsor me as a guinea pig. These shoes look great without yelling "skater" . You can wear them other places and be rad. I am 51, work in healthcare,but my passion is skating and to do that, you need good tools. And all the cool flashy shoes in the world will not give you an advantage unless they perform. Bravo IPATH !!!!!

Nice shoes. My son is not a skater, which these shoes say they are skate shoes. He's a cowboy in fact and he loved them. They seem to be holding up fine and for the price are a light weight good looking shoe. True to size, great value.
