Comfy, practical aaaand good looking
Super comfy sneakers and they look pretty good on your plates-o-meat (feet). I wear them for everyday wandering around and getting to work etc. Not sure how they'd hold up skateboarding.
They are also really good in the wet. All my other regular Vans in the past have leaked through and you get wet feet for an hour or so. These bad boys keep you toasty warm AND dry. Perfect for crappy weather days.
