Uh, dad, I'm kinda busy...
God, what a day! First you woke up to find out that your roommate had used that last of the Squeeze-Cheeze on his toast. Then the jackass left crumbs all over the coffee table and some fell into your brand-new DVS Men's Rico CT Shoes. To top it off your dad left you this annoying, five-minute message; something about your mom being sold into slavery in Indonesia.

I bought these shoes to use and a casual shoe for just chillin' in the afternoons and a nice shoes to be able to take boating and not worry about it getting wet. I have't used this shoe for skating, but as far as a vulcanized shoe, these shoes feel great and they are very comfortable. If you get the mesh ones, I wouldn't plan on wearing them in the winter, but they are awesome on those hot summer days.

the mesh ones used to be waterproof material, now they have perferated suede.. does it make any difference? will they still be good as a wakeskate / water shoe?
Ahh I can't wait to wakeskate in these next summer! They're super comfy for just walking around. Beware of puddles for the mesh ones.... your socks will get wet. But still they're so legit.
Rico canvas blue and grey mesh
These shoes are pretty awesome, got here in two days, the mesh ones are freaking legit, my only complaint is the one of the canvas ones had a glue spot on it by the toe, not a huge deal but kind o annoying, but hey for 20$ a pair you can't go wrong
Control & Comfort.
These shoes are very comfortable, easy to wear-in and to get used to. They really give you a lot of control. But, because they are so thin, they don't protect much, so if you skate sets/drops constantly, I wouldn't recommend these. But if you mostly just skate flat/ledges/rails/vert, then they'll be perfect. Also, they do wear out pretty fast. I've gone through two pairs in only 4-5 months, but they are pretty cheap, so it even outs.
Do these run small, big, or true to...
Do these run small, big, or true to size?
They run true to size. I wear the same size in these as I do any other vulcanized shoe.
I loved these shoes, so comfortable and never hurt your heels they are great, But the reason I rated them so low is because they wear out really fast but what can you really expect from suede, also the shoe it self wears out fast, like the sole, the midle and the toe wore out pretty fast, but I would recomend it for street wear
Bruised heels won't happen in these like in other low pro shoes. DVS' Bruise Control really does work. This shoe is low as can be, and you can still jump down shit. What more could you want?
Fun in vancouver
Im the guy in the white shirt, I am 13 years old and I love these shoes.
How long would the material last if I skate...
How long would the material last if I skate every weekend?
That's a hard one to answer. Everyone wears shoes out different. Since these do have a suede upper, they will last longer than your average low profile canvas shoes. But every shoe rips.
this isnt a good angle for just the shoes but as you can see the small hole on the bottom. after a month of me and 2 months of my friend.
Sick shoe. material holds up forever and the footbed is thin but cushions all drops. I bought these off my friend for 10 bucks and skated them for a month before I managed a hole in the bottom. even used they work great. definitly a must buy.
For such a thin shoe it is amazingly comfy. The DVS bruise control foam in the heel is a life saver. I have 3 pairs of these and love them all.
They were EXACTLY as the pic and my son loved them!!!
