I bought these for my 14 year old son. He loves them and is especially glad to find them in his size 14. Well made and he says they are comfortable for skate shoes.

I do not recommend this shoe. The only thing good about this shoe is that it has vulcanized sole. The grip ripped in a week because it's canvas. The tongue is to thick. It was tighter on feet than I imagined it would be. In my opinion this is the worst Fallen shoe out.

Great pair of shoes! They fit true to size and are a good price. It is easy to find other brands in local stores, but Fallen skate shoes are sometimes hard to come by!

These are amazing shoes. They are my favorite shoe period. I had Adios for a week and they were torn up bad. I have had these for 2 weeks and they are almost in the same shape that they were when they were new. They have a thin tongue and padding which I like. They have a vulcanized sole which makes them have amazing board feel. I highly recommend these shoes.

Don't believe this guy. They are pretty good, probably the best looking Fallen shoe. They last good, but not as good as some other Fallen or another brand shoes. Overall, great grip, boardfeel, colorways, flexibility and price.

The Forte looks great and is extremely comfortable right out of the box. For skateboarding they are ready to ride as soon as you get them. However, they do not hold up well at all. Mine have been skated lightly over the last two months and they are done for now. This is not the best purchase for skating, but for daily wear they would be a great buy. Many people feel shoes are smaller than marked, but they might want to figure out what their real size is.

Finding vegan shoes can be a bit tricky. Finding ones that will hold-up to the wear and tear of skateboarding is even harder. So far these have been durable but I am still breaking them in. They pinch my pink toe and rub the back of my ankle raw. I am hoping once they are wore a few more time that these issues will go away. Definitely not the best shoes I have ever owned.

This is my 4th pair of this shoe, and it has been my favorite shoe to skate. They are ready to skate right out of the box with great flexibility and board feel. Overall awesome shoe if you are looking to try something new to skate in or just walk around town!

The style is a real stand-out. The comfort is excellent. I bought my true size (10) but had to return them for a 10 1/2 and they now fit great. If there was any negative to this shoe, and it's a very minor one, it's that in the heat of summer it is warm on your feet. I normally wear golf socks with them. For the rest of the seasons it's perfect. I would recommend these for all the reasons you might want in a casual canvas shoe. The size being a little off and the warmth is the only reason I gave it a 4. It should really be a 4 and 1/2!

I am 14, I think these are great shoes for skateboarding and walking around in. I like the way they look, the grey color is nice and the blue laces are a nice touch. The suede material is nicer than the canvas you usually see.

Hey Fallen fans...the description on Black/White III is inadequate, the fabric is a synthetic modified heavy microfiber with the feel of velvet. This causes the shoe to have no give at all, we are a solid 9 in Fallen, the Black/White III fits like an 8 or smaller. Order up a full size! Great looking shoe, adorably small, too bad we had to return. Prefer canvas or suede versions, we wear only Fallen! Zappos rocks, always!

Generally comfy at first, but they aren't the best for walking around the city all the time. The soles come out too easily, and after 2 months I've already worn down the sole and there is a hole in it.

Do not buy this shoe. Bought on August 13, returning August 30. They totally fell apart, and he skated in them about 6 times . The rubber sole came off, and after he had them 5 days, the canvas got a hole. If there was a "0" star rating, that is where I would rate it. They were comfortable, for the 3 weeks they were wearable.
