The Chima Furguson Pro model has been one of the best shoes I've skated in. So comfortable and look great!

Agree - For BMX, I forgot how much I missed the heel padding and overall beefier construction compared to the classic lines. I was trying to get by in old skools, but the estate model of the Chima is pretty perfect (to protect those ankles from crank bites). I've had 3 pairs since they were introduced

@Parker What color/model are those gold-ish and light gray-ish authentics? Both are cool.

Could be the best use of 20 pairs of red Old Skools:

Vans are comf-ier than Converse imo. I dunno about arch support. I have pretty flat feet. A few models have Cush insoles. And the Lites have a spongy feel, sorta like Nike Frees. I like the suede versions. esp navy.

I have a pair of suede Buttero lo's. Sadly my suede vans are much more comfortable.

Building these customs now. Slip-on Pro, navy suede. I want to try the gum sole but marshmallow white is winning in my head. Suedes last me forever. Canvas only a couple of summers.
