These shoes rule! The moment I put my feet into them all I could think about was that one song "I'm Walking On Sunshine". They're incredibly comfortable. My job requires me to do a lot of walking, and these shoes handle that very well, my feet don't feel like they're falling off at the end of the work day. They're well made and they don't show any signs of falling apart, even though I've logged over 200 miles on them (in three weeks!). Where they really shine is what they're made for, skating! Great toe protection, and the treads stick to the grip tape just like you want them to. Perfect for all of your shreddin' needs!
