Vans shoes (Was Re: pedals)

I second that. They are very durable, and comfortable. I never wore Vans
until a couple of years ago when I bought my first pair, and I still have
them and wear them when I ride. The soles are quite worn out but the
shoes are still holding up amazingly well after almost 3 years. I did
just buy a new pair, too. They need breaking in a little bit, still, but
they work well.

I bought my first pair of Vans around October. They are completely worn
out. :slight_smile: Of course, the main reason for that is because I learned how to
glide with those shoes. It took me a bit longer before I figred out how I
destroyed the fabric part of the shoe… turns out, the bolt holding the
seat clamp gets caught in the threading of the shoe when I work on
stand-up wheel walking.

That being said, they are good shoes… I just treat them roughly. jl

Airwalk made a series of shoes called the Foster Bros… modeled after Brian and Alan Foster. I’ve still got these shoes, and they’ve held up to 4-5 years of abuse? I’m thinking of taking them back out for some more beatings.
