These shoes are ok. They are not the most comfortable skate nor are they the most durable. The sole doesn't quite feel like rubber. It feels like more of a hard plastic and I can really feel the difference when I'm longboarding. Good casual shoes, just ok for skateboarding though.
The headphones seem alright. I have a pair of SkullCandy Titans that are at the manufacturer for warranty issues. SkullCandy has great customer service. These arrived in a ziplock bag. There was no carrying case for them. Steap and Cheap has never done me wrong like that. But for thirty bucks, I guess that was a gamble I took. They are 100 times better than stock IPOD headphones. They have a little more bass and a little better sound quality than the Titans.
