The Solo is the 5th Rowley pro model that I've worn casually/skated and I have to say it's vastly superior (in terms of comfort) to the early Rowley XLT line days. They advertise this model as having the ultracush foot bed technology and it does have a nice foam sockliner that is removable but it isn't the same that comes with the Slip-on Pro or the Old Skool Pro. I would say the standard sockliner in this shoe is cheaper and thinner than the models previously mentioned. This may be due to Geoff Rowley's preference as the board feel in this shoe is superior when compared to the previously mentioned other Pro Classic Vans models. Also I found that after a few days the places where shoe bends had begun to crack the outsole just below the sidewall. This is typical for traditional Vans (non Pro Classic models, and really all vulcanized shoes) but something that I haven't seen on the Slip-on Pro or the Old Skool Pro. In closing I find the Vans Pro Classic models to be better constructed, but in no way would I deter anyone from this shoe. Rowley has a reputation of bare necessity skate shoes and the Solos don't disappoint. These are best suited for daily wear and light skating, anything more than a 5 stair is outside its comfort zone. I wear a 9 in Vans across the board and these felt perfect.

Nice casual shoe! I've got the murdered out pair, I don't really skate so I can't give a review from that perspective. I just buy vans skate shoes for their looks, materials and they're the only line that predominantly has HD cush tech. The lateral arc of the shoe is rather steep but it hasn't caused me any problems. I get these were designed for skaters by a skater but for casual wear the HD insoles are too thin. It's not a deal breaker it's just all my other vans have a thicker insole which creates a softer feel. Overall I love suede, I love the silhouette, I love all black and even though they're not as soft as I'd like they're still comfortable.
