Do they skate?
You better believe it, these are way more durable than the classic slip ons (I know if your ride a skateboard you have tried skating in those) These shoes actually have a bit of padding under foot so a 8 foot drop isn't going to bruise your heel.
Great feature changing from a slip-on to a lace shoe. I still haven't kicked these over a fence trying to flick a tre flip up a step up yet. (hold strong laces!)
