If you like the popular etnies Jameson 2, then you probably want to check out the Jefferson Twitch skate shoe. This new style was inspired by the design of the Jameson 2, but with added skate performance, like a streamlined cupsole built super narrow to create a specially shaped toe box that will increase board flick and enhance its slipper-like fit. It also includes a DTTF (dropped-to-the-floor) footbed for maximum board feel and control. Love the Jefferson style, but prefer a mid-top? Go check out the Jefferson Mid.

Reviews for Jefferson Twitch
The material these shoes are made of (synthetic leather; NOT canvas or swede) will last you quite a while. The cushion is decent, and the stitching is doubled in just the right places. The shoelaces come with a very light coating of what seems to be protective wax. If you don't take out the laces too often or get them wet, it won't rub off. The souls are a little weak, at first. You'll need to use them for a couple of days to break in the rubber for better grip.
It was extremely painful to walk in them from day one. The rough material pinched the skin on the top of my toes, giving me horrible blisters. The cloth lining on the inside quickly 'eroded' away, so the hard, double-stitched material would grind the sides of my pinkie toes, giving me more blisters.
Although, they hurt the least when skating. A majority of the pain only came while walking and/or running.
If you're looking to get a pair of shoes strictly for skating, which will last you a while, these are the shoes for you. The look nice, and they're tough. But a little Shoe Goo for insurance wouldn't hurt.
If you're going to use these for not only skating, but every day activity (school, work, running errands) then beware that these shoes HURT. The only way I can think to avoid this issue is to order them larger than the size you would normally get.
