The shoes look great and my son liked them - but he's only had them for a month and has already worn a hole through both toes. I'm going to have to switch to something else. Also the tongue tends to get twisted over the course of a day of playing - I found I had to open up the shoes and straighten the toe out. My son has skinny feet so there may have been more room in his shoes than other kids would have.

I never thought I would order shoes like this online, but I took a chance and I am glad I did. I do not know how the bottom would do on a serious climb, but for my purposes they seem great. I have had foot surgery and wear orthotics, and I always wear shoes for a while inside before I decide to keep them. I kept expecting a problem and they kept feeling great. Finally I wore them all day and my feet felt fine. A three mile walk during the first week and no blisters, no discomfort at all! I want to order in another color now.

These are great shoes and my then 9 year old LOVES them. Stayed together fairly well with everyday use of a scooter rider, skateboard, games on the blacktop, etc.
A champion is never on a first name basis with defeat. You learned at a very early age that once you begin to accept losing, it’s a really hard habit to break.
Of course, at the core of what you do, it’s all about fun. You wouldn’t skate, surf, go snowboarding or ride a bike if it didn’t bring a smile to your face, right? Whether your reward is in the form of a tournament trophy or the feeling of that first bead of sweat rolling down your cheek as you work on some maneuvers, the satisfaction stems from your dedication.
Pair up your natural-born talent and skills with the right gear for success. Cutting edge kicks sporting the latest innovations in footwear technology can be found with brands like etnies™ and Supra™. Not into all the bells and whistles? Go for a stone-cold classic with a pair of Vans®.
Certainly, your passion for action sports extends beyond skateboarding. Brands like Volcom®, DC®, and DVS Shoe Company™ don’t stop at making great skate gear. They can outfit the surf, snow and Motocross® crews, too. Diehards looking to make good on the promise of an endless summer of surf will barrel towards Hurley®, Reef™, Sanuk™, Quiksilver™ and O’Neill®.
When the calendar turns and the snow is packed hard, snowboarders can stock up on enough gear from DC® and Forum™ to fill a halfpipe. Well aware of the fact that having a passion for snowboarding starts early, Burton® Snowboards and its groundbreaking apparel line has everything a kid needs to get started. Not to be left out, teens and adults can make a toeside turn to Burton® too.
If thoughts of a Motocross® world championship have kicked up some dirt in your soul, Metal Mulisha™, DC® and Fox™ are industry leaders.
Now that you’ve got a sick amount of apparel from all these different action sports that give you a rush of adrenaline, the only place to store it all is in a day pack or bag from Dakine®.
With your talent, skill, determination and loads of gear from these brands and more, the undisputed action sports champion is you.
