Great for hangin, not so much for skatin
The Vans 106 is great for hangin, walkin, and leisuring. They're lightweight, comfy, and the canvas breathes great in the summer. But man when I skate these things, my feet take a beating. I think it's because of the mostly flat insoles or minimal padding but my insteps are super sore the next day. I guess my old man feet need a little more cush for the push. Also, the Vulc soles on these things is less grippy than I expected. I didn't feel connected to the board.
Sizing is normal Vans (sized large) - I wear a 10 in Emerica and Supras, 11 in running shoes and I wear a 10 in the Vans 106.
