The EE Avenger is a great skate shoe. Modeled after the Jordan VI, it has all the styling you need to just lounge around and look good. Don't let that fool you, it has amazing feel and grip with your board. Do you expect less when Erik Ellington designs a shoe? The only thing I don't like is the shallow feel of the heel cup but that is due to the extreme padding for impact. They beef up the heel for impact making it one of the most comfortable shoes I own.
