LOVE this shoe! Super comfy and basically broke in in minutes. No insole upgrade needed for impact protection. The toecap is pretty durable and board feel is great for a cup sole! This is definitely going to be my "go to" cup sole shoe! Been skating my pair for a couple weeks and I love them! They still feel like new.

Was not sure if the sizes were UK or USunday when ordering as the size chart was a little confusing. The size ordered came in a UK size and I presumed US. Loose fit works for me though so no worries. Good quality, good service, nice shoes, shame the ones I wanted were one of the few with no discount!
