Supra Vaider

AH!…these are my favorite skate shoes ever hands down!…and last week when I moved I actually lost BOTH pairs that I own!…which was horrible but I am ordering a new pair this week. Anyway on to my review of these shoes. The Supra Vaider is like I said my favorite skate shoe out right now. Here’s why, I got my first pair because I needed something clean and crisp looking but wanted comfort and believe me these are insanely comfortable, you could almost sleep in them. The style of these are great and the colors really pop in real life. I love them. They’re just crazy…I can see maybe they could be too much for some people but not for me.

They’re made from super soft leather and my feet didn’t hurt at all even after skating in them all day. Speaking of skating in em they have some awesome features besides the look and feel. The board grip is killer I used them in he rain and they still performed awesome, I wouldn’t advise it but they held up great with little slipping. They also feature something called “SupraFoam” which I noticed really helped the feel and comfort. They have a vulcanized sole but they still feel great on your feet and not still at all.  I needed mine 1/2 size smaller so if you’re a size ten maybe for for nine and a half.

DC Block Spartan

Hey everyone, this is my new review for the DC Block Spartan after about one month of using them for both skateboarding and every day wear.

Fit-8/10

These felt great as soon as I put them on. Not hard and tough like a lot of other skate shoes. They do fit a little on the small size so maybe buy 1/2 size bigger then you need. This is what I did and it’s worked out great. The tongue and collar on these is nicely padded and help keep my comfort level up and Ive found no matter what kinda of socks Im wearing with them they still conform to my foot great and always feel right.

Style-10/10

For me personally I love the look of these kicks. The graffiti graphics on the side are wicked and I love how they look.  The colors are clear and crisp and over all they’re my favorite day in and day out shoes to wear. I find their look to be really versatile too and goes with tons of other stuff I wear. They come in a few really sick color combination’s just check out some below!

Duribilty-8/10

I’ve been skating in these a whole bunch over the past month and they’re holding up awesome! The fabric doesn’t come
apart of seperate at all. They have a cool lace saving feature which allows you to have the bottom two rows of laces behind an extra piece of leather to guard and protect your laces from being destroyed quickly by your grip tape.

Features-7/10

Upper vent system for maximum airflow (I found it actually works with these shoes) Padded tongue and collar for added comfort and ankle support. Stretchable tongue placements come in really handy and help the shoe totally stay in place on your foot, Performance rubber wrap cupsole, this shoe is also created with a revolutionary new system which gives you all the durable benefits of a vulcanized sole without feeling hard and inflexible.

Key Features:

  • Soft yet durable leather upper.

  • TPU eyelets.
  • Soft foam tongue and collar for ankle support and all around comfort.
