These shoes last forever practically. I do a lot of kickflips and still no big holes after five months. The grip lasted for three months and only have a few bald spots. But still no holes and the grip is still there. The Sti insoles protect amazingly plus its a cupsole so no heel bruises.
Probably the worlds best shoe ever made for skateboarding in my opinion.There is a lot of padding on the collar and the tong of the shoe.But too much.Even though they are a cup-sole you still get really good board feel.They have Sti insoles which are the best.And the non-slip desert grip is the best in the world.You have really good drip.I have had my G-codes for about a month and the bottom still looks brand new.And the suede and rubber on the side is holding up amazing.
