Excellent shoe. Look good and feel great. Im definitely buying dvs for a long time. As long as the shoes keep their comfort.

I'd also recommend: dc is a good secondary option.

Super comfortable. Yellow laces add a little "pop" to the overall look. Massive padded tongue and surrounding areas.

I'd also recommend: Globe, Etnies

Look great. My initial reaction when I put them on was that the back heel is kinda low so it felt weird but now after a few weeks they're really comfortable. And they look really nice. I wear size 13 and they fit good.

I have owned a ton of skate shoes, specifically from DVS. However, I have not purchased a pair in about ten years. Funny enough, I still have three DVS pairs of shoes I originally purchased between the late 90's - early 2000's. In comparison, the Durham runs small, specifically in the width at the toe area. I am hoping they loosen up as they break in. My feet were "feeling it" at the end of a skate session. Other than the size issue, they look and are constructed as I would expect from DVS.

Overall these are pretty good shoes; they have plenty of re-enforced stitching, are comfortable for the most part, and look good. I'm a fan of the skate shoes from the late 90s/early 2000s (my skating heyday...also known as high school), and it seems as though a lot of the skate shoe companies are veering toward this odd and extremely ugly 80s space man boot/hightop look, which I'm not fond of at all, so in the looks department the Durham really appeals to me. As the video says, these shoes are very light, and definitely look and feel as though they're built to last. I particularly like the triple stitching on the rubberized toeridge, and the triple box-stitching on the high-stress areas. The biggest marks against these shoes are twofold - they feel fine for the most part, but they seem a tad shorter than normal; I'm a 6'2, 185lb size 13, and find my big toe brushing up against the interior tip of the shoe at regular intervals, where in my Vans I have a bit more breathing room with regard to shoe length. Secondly, as Tim E said, these shoes are pretty low and loose in the heel. During my first week of wearing them, there were times when it almost felt as though I was wearing a flip-flop, as my heel had a tendency to almost completely rise out of the shoe when I took a step. It was definitely an odd feeling, and putting these on after wearing a different shoe exacerbated the issue. However, the problem became decidedly less pronounced as the interior padding molded itself to my foot, but it might prove to be too much of an annoyance for some. Taking the removable footbed out completely eliminates the heel issue, but it also makes the shoe incredibly uncomfortable, so there really isn't a viable 100% fix for the problem...unless you find a comfortable super-thin footbed to replace the stock one. Another little tidbit about these shoes is that the 'extra cushioning' and the 'arch cookie' Joe mentions in the video are just super-thin blue foam cutouts (maybe 1/10th of an inch thick) that have been glued to the removable sole, and don't really do anything aside from add a dash of color to the footbed. In closing, these are my first pair of DVS shoes, and while they make the grade in some regards, they fell short in others. They aren't a bad shoe by any means, and I'm going to keep them, but they've fallen short of my Vans Cab 5s - which for me are the most perfect skate shoe ever...but I digress. All-in-all the DVS Durham is a pretty good shoe, but needs some refinement in the practicality of its core design elements before it can be a great shoe.
