It is amazing what you kids can come up with, they have fresh ideas and think outside the box. Similar idea I remember from the original E’s Muska.

What I would do to get a pair of these nice and simple. The D3 used to wear so well but damm they were chunky, I think they retailed for around $230 in oz.

The E’s Koston 2 and 3 were great skate shoes and completely nuts in the durability side of things. Had a pair of both of these and loved them both.


Never had these but sold loads and regret not buying a pair.

Had a few pairs of these when they were first released and absolutely loved them. They were as durable as anything and fitted so good, which is as rare as anything for me. Get them again if I could but stick to what they still release.

CJ you know of any black shoes that are suitable for work not to chunky?

Well I can wear any shoe to work no need for the full leather steel cap or anything like that. Just want something low profile more of a leather look.

Nah not important I have Janoski’s to skate in. Emerica - Leo Romero would be alright.

Do they have to be completely black?

Fallen Black Ops are always a good option for completely black.
Emerica Laced as well as the Reynolds Cruiser.
Etnies Jameson or the RCT are a good option.

Hope this helps.
