Jerry Hsu has done it again! I got these shoes purely because Hsu put his name on them. These are, by far, some of the best skate shoes I have ever skated. I skate everyday, kick flip and varial like a beast and my shoes are fine. There is some normal wear and tear, but otherwise nothing is wrong with these shoes. Go get some, you won't regret it.

So I enjoyed the look of the shoe but as soon as I put it on I realized it was the most uncomfortable shoe ever. It could be that this shoe in particular was made incorrectly but the seam in the bottom of the tongue just digs into my foot. Also three days into actual use of the shoe, the sole on the inside of the right shoe completely separated from the leather. I hope I can scrape more than a month’s worth of use out of these shoes, but I severely doubt it. This is a weak shoe.

Well, I have had these shoes less than a week. I'm not the lightest person on the earth, but would like to know why this shoe is such junk. Not only are they making my feet super sore, they rub blisters on the heel easy. I could spend hours going over why these shoes are bad, just take it from me go with another brand. I have ridden skateboards since the 80s and would never again wear this shoe for walking or running. Sucky thing is that I'm stuck with them another few weeks.

I'd also recommend: none they are bad shoes

Hella comfortable and snug. I have flatter feet and they are medium width. These shoes run narrow but don't worry, they will adjust nicely. I wear them daily, I don't skate (since 1991), lol.

These shoes are pretty narrow. I'm a 9, and a 9.5 fit perfectly. They come with white strings just in case you were wondering. Good shoes, had them for about a month and only a little stitching has come off which is easily fixed.

I would skate like 3 times a week and these shoes were really great, they lasted me 2 months. They were super comfy and I would definitely get them again.

I love Zappos! I ordered a pair of Emerica HSU (great brand) shoes for my son and not only did Zappos have them in stock and at a great price, I received them the very next day! I know I will be ordering from Zappos again! Thanks so much for the awesome service.
