These are, hands down, the comfiest shoes i have ever owned. The are padded super well and i sometimes want to wear them overnight. The zoom air unit in the heel cushions any gnarly tricks (or falls) you happen to pull off.
I would recommend getting them a half size or full size larger than your current shoe, because they are a tight fit. I love these shoes and i dont skate without 'em.
(Not really, but i prefer to wear them anyway.)
