These are so tight. I gave my friend my Nike SB EK1's cuz i didnt like them, and he gave me these in return. i didnt even want anything, i just wanted to get rid of those Nikes. But i skated these and found out they are beyond amazing. He said he didnt like the flick, but the toe cap is super rounded like the DC Chris Cole 1, and these Asta's are just absolutely amazing. I dont think they would last me super long, maybe like a month or two, but they are definitely worth it. I didnt favor the insole, so i popped in my DTTF Pro 1 footbed from my etnies Sheckler 5's that i had and it made the shoe like 1000 times better. I really like these, and at first i wasnt thinking about getting another pair, but i kinda think im gonna get some more. My other friend let me try his Asta 2's, and those are pretty nice too, but i like the Asta 1's better. They are an amazing shoe, and id definitely reccomend them, 1000 percent.
Pros: breaks in easy, long lasting soles, looks great, good board feel, cool colors, stylish, durable, good cushioning, sole keeps grip a long time, comfortable, good grip, so amazing, i love tom asta
Cons: could have better insoles but it doesnt matter

Dude. Where to start? These are probably one of the most amazing shoes I have ever had in my life. They are just amazing. When i first got them they were kind of stiff, but were crazy comfy. I skated them right out of the box, and within probably a good 20 minutes of skating in them they felt pretty broken in. Since they're vulc tho, I didn't think you'd be able to jump down stuff, but the STI Fusion and the insole that comes with them is, like, crazy. Your feet don't hurt at all if you jump down something big, even if you're doing it for a while. Best thing about them tho is that they're so comfy and I've been skating them for about a good week, and skating a lot during the week, and they're holding up great. I think if you wanna try these out, you should. Etnies is pretty tight.
Pros: breaks in easy, looks great, good board feel, stylish, doesn't rip, durable, good cushioning, good ankle support, laces don't break, comfortable, good grip, these are so sexy, everything, sheckler's the man.

When gold medalist boarder Chris Cole speaks, you should be all ears. The DC Shoes Cole Pro is the signature model of the man himself. Cole knows the style and performance it takes to dominate the streets, so with his direct hand in the development of this shoe, you can be certain you’ve got yourself a sneaker that will turn some heads. If you’re ready to up your game to the next level, you better look the part. Heavy-duty suede upper. Foam-padded tongue. Abrasion-resistant sticky rubber outsole.

Dude, i was so psyched when i got these! they are the most comfortable shoes i have ever worn hands down. and they have tongue straps so the tongue doesnt move around, which is tight. as soon as you put your foot in and lace it up youll freak out cuz they are so comfy and they mold to your foot within the first day but they keep your foot locked in place and thats pretty cool, they have kind of an airbag right under the ball of your foot and it is the most comfortable thing ever, i havent skated them too much yet, but when i start skating them hard i am positive they will last long cuz of how clean they look and the whole DC Super Suede that they have going on, overall a near PERFECT shoe, i would DEFINITELY get them if you are even thinking the slightest about getting them, seriously man, theyre amazing.
Pros: breaks in easy, looks great, good board feel, cool colors, stylish, durable, good cushioning, good ankle support, comfortable, good grip, the most comfortable shoe i have ever worn., so tight., chris cole man what do you expect!?, perfect, if youre thinking about getting them get them bro
Cons: honestly.....none!, you might not have gotten them yet. :(

i am so glad i bought these....wow. they are...wow. i pulled them out of the box so stoked and put them on. and they are so comfy, its unbelieveable, then i didnt skate them for a week so i could look fresh when i went to homecoming, (which of course i did, cuz these shoes are sexy as ever). but when i started skating them, it was the best feeling ever, i had never skated a shoe with so much boardfeel and just so comfy. these are insane, their a cupsole but they skate like a vulc with the protection of a cup. wow... im a person who jumps from company to company, trying everything, but i think im stickin with Busenitz, definitely getting another pair, please get them!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pros: breaks in easy, long lasting soles, looks great, good board feel, stylish, durable, good cushioning, sole keeps grip a long time, comfortable, good grip, breaks in so fast, i love this shoe, definitely getting it again, please get these shoes!!!
Cons: absolutely nothing....really

Torey Pudwill is unstoppable: Waist high pop, slides for days, and a killer signature shoe. All hail T-Puds! The suede upper provides great durability and style. Mid-top silhouette offers additional ankle support. Highly flexible for ultimate board control. Custom embroidery details. Non-slip vulcanized outsole. "I’m really into skating in mid-top shoes. So right then and there I wanted to do a mid-top cause I wanted a shoe that I was comfortable in. And I wanted it to look cool when it was all beat up and stuff. I just wanted something I knew I would feel good in, skating. And I never had a skate shoe that fits on my foot as good. I’m not trying to hype it up but realistically; I can’t skate in any other shoe." -Torey Pudwill

When the Janoski was first dropped, it was truly one of a kind. Never before had a skate shoe incorporated high-tech features, premium materials, and a laid-back, nautical-inspired design. Leather, suede or canvas upper with double stitching in key zones to help deter blowouts. The upper houses perforations over the forefoot to increase airflow. One-piece, heel-to-midfoot overlay for streamlined support. Lightly padded collar for ankle protection and comfort. Cushioning midsole. Vulcanized sole construction increases flexibility. Nike Zoom, low-pro unit sits below for increased performance. Rubber outsole with herringbone traction pattern for lasting grip and easy change of direction.   The Premium SE version of the Janoski contains different features, while maintaining the flexible vulcanized construction and Nike Zoom unit for cushioning. Prem SE: Suede/leather and nubuck upper backed with foam supplies comfort. Prem SE: Coated toe box helps resist wear from flips. Prem SE: Honeycomb midsole for lightweight cushioning. Prem SE: Sticky gum-rubber outsole for flexibility.

Dude these shoes are like god of all shoes. notice how there is over 70 reviews on these shoes and they still have like a 4.8? Nike SB is doin' somethin' right. i love these! ive had, and skated them since my birthday in February, and they are just starting to rip! theyre amazing!!! but i usually wear 11.5 in other Nike SB shoes, but these run a little large, so i ordered another pair a day ago and ordered a half size smaller. but its whatever, but i love these shoes, i think you should look into buying them!!!
Pros: breaks in easy, long lasting soles, looks great, good board feel, cool colors, stylish, doesn't rip, durable, good cushioning, laces don't break, sole keeps grip a long time, comfortable, good grip, stefan janoski, oh my god, please get them
Cons: just that theres nothing wrong with them...

Slip-ups need not apply. When charging hard like Geoff Rowley proper grip should be the last thing on your mind. Vans Rowley Pro shoe provides great traction due to Vans original waffle rubber outsole. Pro vulcanized sole construction allows for an extra flexible fit and amazing board feel. Suede/synthetic upper material is durable yet breathable for intense skate sessions. Suede/synthetic upper materials. Pro vulcanized sole construction. Original waffle rubber outsole.
 

Sizing...

So I'm a little skeptical to order these. These say they run true to size, but I'm always a little scared to order shoes off the Internet. I thought I'd wear 11.5's in Era's, but when I got them they were a little too big. I got an 11 and they fit perfectly. Do you think I should get an 11 in these? I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm so difficult!

So fresh and so clean, the Nike SB Team Edition 2 shoe skates as good as it looks. Slimmed down and lightweight. Suede upper gives comfort and durability. Vulcanized sole for boardfeel. Perforated piping supplies ventilation. Pronounced eyelets for style.
 

Fit like Janoski's?

I regularly wear a size 11.5, but got a pair of Janoski's in 11.5, and they were too big, so I got size 11 and they fit perfect. These shoes look a lot alike compared to Janoski's, and I want to know if they for like them?. Based on that info could you tell me whether to order an 11 or 11.5 in the Nike SB Team Edition 2?? I usually like a little bit of room at the end of the shoe for my toe move, but I'm not sure what to do, thank you for your time!

Mix and match P. Rod's insane skills with his idea of the perfect shoe, and you've got yourself the P. Rod IV. Suede upper. Reinforced double stitched toe and ollie area. Custom padded tongue and lining. Full length padded insole. Signature cupsole construction. Imported. "Basically for me, I wanted the shoe to be simplified. Just nice suede, that’s my favorite material for gripping, and a nice sole that will protect your feet but isn’t too thick so you can’t feel your board. For me, if I want to jump down stairs I don’t feel safe in vulcanized shoes, I feel safer in a good cupsole that’ll protect my feet. So that was my idea for the P. Rod IV." -Paul Rodriguez
 

true size?

i wear 11.5's in blazers and 11 in the zoom air janoskis, so should i get an 11 or 11.5 in the P.Rod IV's? i just want to make sure i get the right shoe size.
