 Vans Era Pro - Men's
Vans Era Pro - Men's
Sweet classic style has been upgraded to meet the demands of modern day skateboarding. This beloved style features a single-density polyurethane (PU) midsole that keeps the Vans Era Pro lightweight and flexible, while a combination insole stabilizes the heel and elevates flexibility where you need it. Suede/canvas upper tops it all off. Duracap rubber provides extra reinforcement at the toe and ollie patch, so your shoes have a longer life. S hoe flexes at the ball of your foot, heel remains stable. Lace them up easily due to metal eyelets.

If you want a shoe that would last you just for a short amount of time, like, example. If you were on vacation for a week or two and you forgot your skate shoes, these are the PERFECT shoe for it. They are cheap, and last like 2 weeks before a tear, and the toe detail is exactly where the tear is going to be at. and it stops where the toe detail is. Buy these, you must at least give them a try. I liked them.
Pros: fast-flat:p
Cons: wears down after 2 weeks

Hmm, Reds are very fine quality, just that they rust a bit if left in the rain for a day. But once you use speed cream or WD-40 it will be back to normal.
These last very long. Don't make the mistake of buying swiss. It's not worth it because reds or rush , only differance is price really, and a slight bit of speed. If you really wanted good bearings, get Super reds ceramics, if you wanted any type of ceramic, because S/Red Ceramics are like x4 the quality of regular swiss or swiss super six.
Pros: durable, long lasting

These are fine, people exaggerate on 2 weeks until a tear. It took me about a month or so until a tear, which I can almost nightmare flip in all positions(Only problem is switch). So if anybody is to judge, it's most likely me. But once they tore, it starts tearing HARDCORE, so once the toe area starts to get worn, it's a good idea to get shoe goo at the time it tears.
It absorbs shock well.
Pros: fine

This is possibly the best street wheel, comparing to Better Wheels. Better as in the company "Better". These wheels are very hard, 103a, hard enough to slide well. Flatspots can occur, but not very often do they flatspot. I've only had these for like 3 weeks, but I tend to flatspot very quickly, and these seem to hold up fine. They haven't worn down much, you can still see the lines on the bottom.
Pros: durable, good grip

 Bones Bearings Swiss Ceramic Bearings
Bones Bearings Swiss Ceramic Bearings
Bones Swiss Ceramics are in a class by themselves. If you want the best there is, this is it. The Cerbec® ceramic balls are much lighter, harder, stronger, and longer lasting than the finest steel balls. Resist dirt and moisture better. High speed nylon ball retainer for greater strength and speed. Skate Rated™ clearances, tolerances, materials and lubricant provide the best performance and durability possible. Set of 8 bearings. Imported.
 

why do people pop the shields off?

is there a reason?
To clean the bearing, when you pop the shields off, you can wash the bearing of dirt inside of the bearing, since the shields don't protect it all. just most of it, I prefer keeping them off, because if you do, all the dirt that comes in, goes out.

how would you put bearings in these wheels

You take the bearing, and put it on you axle of your truck, and take your wheel and basically press down on your wheel until the bearings pop into the wheel.
