Back in the day I used to skate bunches. Shoes falling apart was something that had to be realized. Well now I occasionally skate but rarely do tricks or even ollie. I just cruise the street and rarely go to hit some ramps etc. My dilemma is that I bought some circa shoes and after like 2 months of very light usage the seams by were ollie and flips are done came apart! Let me emphasize I barely even used these shoes and have not even ollied in them. They are fitted perfectly fine so my only reasoning is that the manufacturing process is botched so that skaters just buy more shoes. Call me crazy but it seems they are being designed to fail. I personally like skate shoes for comfort and for their casual aesthetics. I've had everything from vans, dvs, emerica, fallen, circa, and much more. What have been your faves? I love the looks of circa and vans....but want something more reliable in terms of my shoes not falling apart. Anyways....my rant is over.
