The new Etnies Highlight is built without the added weight of rubber. By integrating "STI Evolution Foam" in the footbed, midsole and outsole, this shoe offers a durable fit that's incredibly lightweight. Suede, textile and synthetic upper. One-piece toe contains a silicone-backed ollie area. TPR wrapped heel delivers added durability. Subtle Fallen branding. Inner bootie and a moisture-wicking liner supply comfort.

one of the lightest shoes i have ever skated super awesome but foam just doesn't grip like rubber. It still grips very well but its just not rubber. it breaks in right out of the box and the foam on the midsole isn't wearing down that quick which is surprising. I've been skating them for about a week and i think they are great also they look good which is a plus and your heel dosent slip out and they are very comfortable!! also not the worlds best cushioning for landing haven't got a heel bruise but i might and the insoles are non-removable
Pros: breaks in easy, long lasting soles, looks great, good board feel, cool colors, stylish, runs true to size, doesn't rip, durable, comfortable, laces don't break
Cons: poor grip

This kick takes the adidas Busenitz and treats it to a significant technical upgrade. Now, to go along with the smooth all suede upper comes a vector traction outsole with a grippier tread design for an ideal connection with your board. Comfy molded Sockliner. Supportive GEOFIT™ collar.

I bought it in the ccs store it fit okay, kind of a strange fit to be honest but it had a cool design. I Washed and hung it to dry and the neck went floppy, so i dried it the next time and it shrunk into a 1x1 square. I wouldn't buy it unless you know how diamond fits on you. (p.s. I have a 39 inch chest and I bought a medium)
Pros: cool colors, stylish, cool graphics
Cons: shrinks too much

I bought this in a ccs store and it fits great. The color is the med blue size medium and it fits my 39" chest great! I couldn't ask for anything better at this price. I might buy some different colors.
Also i wash and dry it and it hasn't shrunk too much. It still fits well!
Pros: doesn't shrink, stylish, runs true to size, durable, comfortable
Cons: not enough colors

So fly like a G6. Bryan Herman’s newest release, the Herman G6, looks dope and skates even better! Made of premium smooth suede for the utmost comfort, the G6 from Emerica has a breathable tongue and medial sidewall to keep your feet nice and cool. Three-part midsole features: a full-length high-rebound G6 foam on the top layer, stabilizing foam in the middle layer, and a gum rubber outsole on the bottom for enhanced grip. Solid one-piece upper panel covers the toe and Ollie area to prevent blowouts and prolong the life of your kicks. New three-part midsole system with G6 high-rebound lightweight foam improves stability and cushions feet from intense impacts.

They aren't lasting very long i'm on week 2 of skating them and the soles are worn down to the point that some of the tread is gone. The shoe also some how ripped on the collar. But the worst part is the cushion my feet have been sore since i started using them ... 5/10
Pros: cool colors
Cons: poor ankle support, soles wear out, laces break easily, poor cushioning, does not break in quickly

The Vans Era has been pumping out fresh styles since 1975. These kicks follow the same foolproof plan: A comfortably padded collar and a no-slip bottom give skaters a great feel for their board. The tradition continues today as the Vans Era is constantly getting slick new color updates. At this point, Vans is just showing off. Uppers made of canvas and/or suede and/or leather. Die-cut EVA insert. Traditional gum rubber outsole.

With 26 years of skating experience, Eric Koston channeled extensive riding knowledge into the making of his first signature Nike shoe. The Nike Koston shoe takes a very basic design and loads it with latest technology for superior performance and durability. Uppers constructed of leather/suede, nubuck or mesh for durability and beathable comfort. Stitchless lining construction coupled with TPU reinforced suede prevent ripping and toe blowouts from continuous skating. Lunarlon sockliner adds protection from heel bruising, yet it’s thin enough for excellent board feel. Breathable mesh tongue prevents sweaty feet during extended riding sessions. Circular herringbone tread pattern and flexible cupsole offer insane levels of grip, flexibility, and board control. Additionally, a neoprene collar provides long-lasting comfort. Uppers made of leather/suede, nubuck and mesh. Stitchless lining construction coupled with TPU reinforced suede. Lunarlon sockliner. Breathable mesh tongue. Flexible cupsole with circular herringbone tread pattern. Neoprene collar. Removable insole.

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.

Eric Koston‘s second signature kick, the Koston 2, may look similar to its predecessor but a few new twists to this model makes it a great stylistic upgrade. The Koston 2 features distinct panels in the upper, and has perforations on the side for great ventilation when things heat up. This kick also has a cupsole construction with a new anatomical drop in Lunarlon sockliner, for plush comfort. Suede upper. Additional midfoot protection. Heel lockdown.
 

grip

do these have deeper tread than the Koston 1s?
