amazing... these shoe are crazy good. once you get them out the box you can instantly skate them, they have great board feel and they look awesome, the durability is pretty strong with the suede at the front taking a lot of the damage and it still holds up, the canvas in the middle scufs a lot, you cant use the first shoe lace hole cause it'll rip easy but other than that this shoe is SOLID i am definitely buying it again
Pros: breaks in easy, good board feel, stylish, durable, sole keeps grip a long time, comfortable, good grip
Cons: rips easy

the hsu lows, these shoes are just incredible to skate they feel so comfortable and just great they are very durable, i got the grey canvas ones and (unlike vans) there was only tiny rips around the corners and edges, this shoe isn't that low or mid its sort of in between, the grip you is Emerica so its great and dont put the laces right up to the first hole cos they will break after (no joke) and hour but other than that these are buttery shoes and I recommend to anyone
Pros: long lasting soles, good board feel, stylish, durable, good cushioning, comfortable, good grip, great ankle support, looks so awesome

you get what you pay for right? yes tool is really annoying and hard to use and broke when i took it out of its package, the little ball thing on the screw and alum key fixture to hold it in BROKE when i took it out the little ball just pooped out with the spring. also when im doing the nuts and bolts it is extremely irritating also tightening kingpin nuts is a bit hard when your really tightening it. the only good things about it is that it looks cool and is small so i can put it in my pocket when im skating.
Pros: small
Cons: annoying

these bearings are terrible i don't even know why i got Element its such a bad brand. when i got them they came in this pretentious box which smelt and when i put them in my wheels they were literally like my year old rusted bones reds bearings but WORSE after i skated them for a week (i usually ollie 4-5 stairs) i actualy got really annoyed with them and got new bones, took them out 3 out of the 8 sad bearings wer actually BROKEN. do not get these they are a waste of your money just get bones reds for only $3 more and they are amazing
Pros: cool box...
Cons: smelly, weak, slow, very slow, just bad, element

these shoes are okay i'm not sure what all the hype was about i got these shoes and they smelt like bottom crack not that, that really matters but here is the review
when i skated these they felt really chunky or somthing (i think its cos i skated Emerica laced's) and those wierd bits between the toe cap and the habitat tag get ripped really easily when i did ollies, when id do kick and tre flips the toe cap was very good cant complain about it.
when i went longboarding the grip of the sole wasn't very good at all the circle bit with the habitat logo is pretentious and is the worst part of the sole.
Pros: long lasting soles, stylish, comfortable, sexy, sort of durable
Cons: laces break easily, poor board feel, not very good grip

these shoes are not at all durable i skated them 4 bout 3 weeks and the old skool logo was basicly ripped in half the ankle bit was nearly gone and then wear the suede bit connoects to the canvas that ripps and you have a flap of suede hangin off your shoe makin a hole and harder to skate in, then the shoelaces.... the shoelaces ripp in minutes. DO NOT GET THESE SHOES for skate, there pretty awesome lookin if u wanna get them for chiller shoes
Pros: stylish
Cons: non durable, takes a while to get use to, shoe laces blow out, worst skate shoe

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.
 

On the colorway black/white is the picture exactly what the shoe looks like?

because there's two types of old skools the one with the fat stripe (as shown) and the one with the thin stripe

 Emerica Hsu 2 Low - Men's
Emerica Hsu 2 Low - Men's
You too can enjoy the Hsu 2! Suede upper. Thin padded tongue and collar. Full-length internal polyurethane midsole. STI PU Foam™ Lite level 3 footbed. 400 NBS natural gum rubber outsole. STI Fusion Technology. Removable insole. Imported.
 

Why is Your description for this shoe wrong? Can you Change it?

the description on this shoe is wrong it says its vulcanized which its not it has a fusion tech like the mid versions... I went on the emerica website and this is there description; Jerry Hsu and enjoi collaborate on this sweet shoe, featuring a thin padded tongue and collar for ankle comfort, a full-length internal polyurethane midsole and STI PU Foam™ Lite level 3 footbed for comfy cushioning, and a 400 NBS natural gum rubber outsole for serious grip. It all comes together with STI Fusion Technology, in which the outsole, midsole, and upper are fused together to create an unbreakable bond with a vulcanized look that's lighter, more comfortable, flexible and durable. Enjoy the Hsu 2 Low enjoi!

how long would this shoe last without being skated?

im very loyal to fallens when i skate. but i have bad ankles and i was wondering if these shoes would be comfortable enough and good enough for just chilling. and my ankles r bad so would it effect me?.
i too have bad ankles and i usually go for cupsole shoes not vulcanized cause they add more strength and support for your ankle... also midtops are pretty good aswell (cupsole shoes... emerica g-code, nike sb mid blazer, ) usually says in description whether a shoe is cupsole or vulcanized

The standard by which all other bearings are measured. High speed. Set of 8 Bearings. This bearing is not 'ABEC' rated. Imported.
 

Do these come with spacers?

Do Bones Reds Bearings come with spacers? What do spacers do anyway? Do you need them?
No, the bones reds bearings do not come with spacers,

spacers are little cylinders that slide on to the truck and fit between the two bearings 'space' them apart each other so you don't tighten them to close to each other they also make them straight so the wheel are not all wobbly

but you don't need them for the bearings to work, they work just as well without them hence why bones doesn't sell them
