Not only do the Carlos provide foot-friendly comfort, they also have an air of unparalleled steez about them. I use these shoes just to kick it and for skating and they are AWESOME. The first day I skated in them, they were PERFECT. The board feel is stupendous and they just feel great. I also use these for work, where I walk several miles a day. I've had them for around three months and they're just barely starting to wear. Love these shoes. I will definitely be back for more.
