Inside saving lace loop holes, good looking, comfortable after about two weeks.
Tight on feet when first worn, sole wears fast then starts to crack, toe cap starts to wear off, stitching get's split from skating easy.
Adio Kenny Anderson's V1:
There are many things skaters expect when they buy a brand new pair of skating shoes. They probably want lace protection that keeps laces from splitting off the grip tape, durability, no ripping and a sole that doesn't lose its grip. The Adio Kenny Anderson V.1 is nearly the opposite. The sole starts to wear in about a month, the toe cap starts to show it's 2nd layer in about 2 months, laces split even with the inside saving lace loop holes. The sole starts cracking at the upper part of the sole, and if you walk in them it will start to tear off at the lower tip of the sole. It is recommended not to be worn to walk in if you skate hard. I have to use shoe goo to protect my toe cap from wearing off until there is a big hole the toe cap. When you ollie it might take almost a year (if it even lasts that long) to start tearing on the side of the shoe. The stitches that keep the toe cap on the fabric will probably rip, but you might want to glue it back, trust me or else it will get worse. It will also take about 2 months to start fitting in to the shoe and start becoming comfortable.
