Sturdy shoe, fly style. A bit more low-profile than the Manteca I. Sizing is a bit weird, though, but seems to be the case for all DCs. I usually wear a 10.5 in all other skate shoes. 10.5 in these are a bit snug, and the 11 is too big. I went with the 10.5, and while they're a bit tight for kicking it, I really like the snugness for skateboarding; makes the shoe feel less sloppy. And we all buy skate shoes to skate in, right, so yeah.
