    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.

    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.

    I'm curious as well. I will say that Ultracush models are extremely comfortable compared to standard models. Once I tried the pro skate models with Ultracush, I was sold.

    Build these custom Authentic's last year:
