These are probably the best skate shoe's I've ever tried on. At first these halfcabs seem they might be a bit clunky or big but they do not feel that way on my feet. They have just enough padding where you can feel your deck but not get heel bruises. They are true to size unlike other Vans.
I have very wide feet and have looked high tops and low tops for a comfortable skate shoe. These half cabs fit like a glove right out of the box. My other skate shoes (dunk lows) I got in size 9 and they took like a month to break in. These I tried in a size 9 for some extra width. They fit like slippers and they were so incredibly comfortable. There was still some break-in for the next week or two, but they didn't pinch at all - they stretched out real nice. They look awesome and have a tough construction. Vans rocks! These vans mens skate shoes are available in various colorways. $65-$80.
