I purchased this product for:myself
I purchased this product:1-3 months ago
The athletic skill level of the person using this product is:beginner
I have these trucks for over 3 months now and not much damage has been done to these trucks.
It is true that independent trucks are on the heavy side compared to other truck companies but what what independent offers is experienced and feed back from skaters from over 25 years and every stage gets better and better and even more lighter.
These trucks has a surfy feeling when skating it and the turning is incredibly smooth due to the geometry of how it is design not like other trucks where it feels like a diving turn.
I recommend replacing the bushing with bones hard core bushings either hard or medium because it will make the turning twice as better due to the rebound of the bushings. the bushings that comes with the trucks are not bad at all but bones bushings are even better...
These trucks are guaranteed for life, it will last you a long time so you wont be needing to get new trucks every 3 months
Pros: durable, grinds smooth, great feel, turns well

 Nike SB Koston - Men's
Nike SB Koston - Men's
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.

Be aware that this shoe is designed for the needs of Eric Koston.
The insoles weigh as light as a feather made from Lunarlon and will also protect you with great impact the whole time I had these shoes never once ive had heel bruises.
It is designed to be a one piece toe cap so when one area has been ruins it doesn't effect the the whole shoe.
The with this shoe you will have a less chance off ripping your laces due to where the laces are positioned.
It is a cup sole shoe
this shoe has lasted me 2 months and a half of every day use i wear this to school and skate with this after school, during the first month I started getting holes on the ollie area but it wasn't a problem because i had shoe goo to cover it up, and also during the time i was using this shoe the shoe laces did not rip at all and wasn't even close to being ripped.
On the very last day i used this shoe was when i ripped the a bit of the soul of the right shoe because it was worn out.
overall this shoe is excellent for skateboarders
Pros: breaks in easy, looks great, good board feel, cool colors, stylish, durable, good cushioning, good ankle support, laces don't break, sole keeps grip a long time, comfortable, good grip
Cons: soles wear out

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.
