    I've lusted after these for over a year, but didn't pull the trigger 'cause I was just sick of chuck's after wearing them off and on for 25+ years as my main sneaks. During that time their popularity/played out-ness has ebbed and flowed. Finally, after going through a couple pairs of Tretorns, Sperrys and German Army trainers I decided to come back home. The same model/color pictured above arrived in the mail today. I'm not ashamed to admit I paid close to retail ($80 shipped), because not only do they look dope... they're waaaaaay more comfortable than regular chucks. It can't just be the JV insole either, as I've experimented with every possible method of sizing and various inserts with about 10 pairs over the years. Not that my previous pairs were uncomfortable or anything, it's just that these.... ahhhhhh. I've heard some rumblings concerning quality, but I've had them from both the USA and China before and didn't really notice much difference. These were made in Vietnam. We'll see how it goes. The bay has 'em for less than zappos shipped in most configurations. Stick with your regular chuck sizing (or even .5 less).

    I would have to agree that the JV versions are much much more comfortable. Not just in the soles, but all around. I definitely noticed a difference the first time I put them on compared to my regular version chucks.

    im concerned. i am going a bit insane.

    i just got the pbj xx005 (as the 007 was out of stock).

    the insane thing was, that after being told the 007 was out of stock, i got the eternal 864 on sale instead.

    and knowing i had a difference to be refunded. instead of opting for a refund, i just went ahead and got the xx005 as well. like, oh what the hell.

    crap. i am definitely quitting for the rest of the year.
