light, cool colors,
stitches fall apart, stitches on sole are fake, sole easily comes unglued, top shoelace hole loves to eat shoe laces for breakfast
These shoes were great the first couple of days. I have used them for skating only, so by now, two pairs have seen about 10 hours skating each. Then the griptape starts ripping up shoelace in the top hole. then stitches on the omnipresent "vans wave" come undone, then back heel piece (behind "[rowley]") comes unglued, and who knows what horrors may soon be found. The stitches on the heel piece are fake too! perhaps if they were real i wouldn't have this problem! anywho, for 50 bucks a pair and being designed by a pro, i would expect these to hold up better with my modest (compared to rowley's) skating!
