I've had these wheels for months now, and they're still really sweet. When I got them I also put on some pretty new bearings and my board was sooo much smoother and faster. It was sick. I still don't have any flat spots, they're lasting great. And they look sweet. Plus, they're Slash's wheels; he's legit.
Pros: durable, long lasting, great speed

These Krew jeans are great. They're slim around the thighs but get loose around the calves. They are NOT skin tight, they're slim. Maybe get a size up if you want it to be a little more loose around the thighs, but honestly you can't feel anything. I personally like skinnier jeans, but these are AMAZING for skating, so I decided to get some. They're SUPER stretchy it's insane. They're a tad pricey but if you can scrape up some money go buy them, they're worth it. KSlims.
Pros: stylish, durable, comfortable

Pretty Sweet!

Basically, at first I didn't like the way this shoe skated. But after just chilling in them for a while, I skated them and they were pretty good! I don't know what happened but they're pretty legit now. It's low cost, comfy, light, has good grip, and looks sweet. The only con I've come up with is that they have no padding. I like thin shoes, but the problem with that is that when the board hits your feet, it hurts. But overall, it's a good shoe for the price. Check em out, if you don't like skating them, just chill in them!
Pros: low cost, comfy, light, good grip

The iconic Vans side stripe was introduced to the world in 1977 on the Vans Old Skool. Today’s skaters know the side stripe puts the Old Skool on par with some of the most durable and revered skate shoes ever built. Staying true to its roots after all these years, the Old Skool continues to drop fresh color updates. The Vans Old Skool is still going strong. Vintage, vulcanized rubber outsole construction. Vans’ own waffle grip sole for unmatched traction on the board. Combination suede/canvas upper.

In my experience, these shoes are pretty sick! They're comfortable and definitely stylish, they're old school!
As for skating, from what I've dealt with, these shoes are fairly good. However, for me, the typical ollie area on the side of the shoe tore pretty fast for me. But I guess I could just ollie more than other skaters. I dunno. Well overall, I think they're pretty cool. If you skate lightly, pick up a pair of these. If you skate a lot, then I wouldn't really recommend these shoes because of the canvas, but they're sick!
Pros: stylish, comfortable

Not bad!

I liked these shoes. They're comfortable, have good board feel and I like the way they look. I mainly only skated lightly with these, nothing hardcore or everyday, so they lasted me a few months. But if you skate everyday then these won't last very long. It'll tear fairly quickly around the side ollie area and side/toe area if you do flip tricks. But overall, not bad.
Pros: good board feel, stylish, comfortable

The Levi’s 510 Jeans capitalizes on that popular skater look: The super skinny jean. The 510’s aren’t just rocking the skinny fit, it’s a super skinny fit. Made with 99% cotton and 1% spandex to offer that classic Levi’s comfort, with a little bit of stretch for when it comes time to hop on your board. This jean also carries on the 5-pocket styling that has been a long-running tradition for Levi’s. Other features include custom printed pocketing and wider belt loops. 99% cotton/1% spandex. Imported. Custom printed pocketing. 5-pocket styling.

I've always been getting 510s. They're good quality jeans and I like the fit. They are true to size, unless your super skinny. If you skate, these jeans aren't too stretchy so maybe use them if you're chilling. They have stretch but it's not like Krew or anything. Overall, they're legit.

From my experience, I didn't really like this shoe. I liked the way it looked though, I think they look sick. But as for skating, I don't recommend them. At first, the shoe was really stiff and took a month to loosen up. There isn't much board feel at all. And it actually kind of hurt my feet. Although, the only good thing I liked besides it looking cool is that they lasted a few months for me. And after like the first month of skating, it finally started to break in for me. But then right when I broke them in, they started breaking at the toe from kickflips and stuff. So overall, I don't recommend them for skating, but if your chilling then sure.
Pros: stylish, durable
Cons: uncomfortable, poor board feel

An Alright Shoe

I actually really liked this shoe. It's really comfortable, it has good board feel, and nice grip. The only thing that made me not use these shoes anymore is the canvas on the sides. Literally, after skating for about two hours, I got a hole in the canvas just from ollie-ing around. So that kind of made me not like this shoe. However, everything else is really good for skating and chilling. If you can some how avoid the hole on the side, then these shoes would be great for you!
Pros: good board feel, stylish, comfortable, good grip
Cons: non-durable

The Fallen Slash is the perfect kick to shred in. Brian "Slash" Hansen's first pro shoe combines the easy rider look and feel you'd expect to see under Slash's board stomping feet. The suede/canvas upper provides you with a fresh style, and great durability. The EVA insole provides great cushioning upon impact for those long days of hardcore boardin’. Foam padded collar and tongue. Vulcanized sole.

A pretty sick shoe.
PostedJune 3, 2010

So I've had this shoe for a few weeks now. These shoes are very comfortable for chilling and skating. I've only skated for real (a couple of hours a day) about 4-5 times with these and it's not too bad. For me, the ollie-spot of the shoe usually tears really quickly (like the 2nd or 3rd time skating), but this shoe is only a little scratched there, so I like that. The only main damage is the kickflip-ish area. For me, it's pretty damaged already. The grip is nice though and it has fairly good board feel. So overall, I'd say this shoe is good for chilling and fairly light skating if you want it to last a while. If you skate a lot everyday, then you should get yourself some Rivals or Rippers!
Pros: good board feel, stylish, durable, comfortable, good grip

How is jumping off stuff?

like stairs,big gaps, ledges, and big stuff. also how board feel are they? like chukkas or something?
I think ollie-ing gaps isn't a problem for this shoe. The ollie-area for the shoe is pretty good about ripping. It'll last a bit I think. And board feel is pretty good, in my opinion. I've had chukka lows too. The board feel is pretty similar to them actually.

I like these shoes better than the Chukka Lows cause for me, the chukka lows got a hole on the side after a few hours of skating.
