Beyond durable. Those grey and black ones are super sick. I bought like 3 pairs, saving 1 pair to chill in. They should take this sole and put it on to the tilts. They definitely should do this and I hope you are reading this emerica. Make a cupsole version of the tilts PLEASE!
This shoe fully met my expectations; just like Emerica has for me for 20+ years. Perfect amount of board-feel and flexibility right out of the box!
I'm on my second pair and I have two pairs on ice. For real, these are the some of the best shoes I have ever skated. They have lasted twice as long as other shoes. If you just be mindful of gluing down the front sewn seams as they rip and shoe goo a little here and there, they will last a long, long time. I only say that because the sole outlasts every other part of the shoe by a long shot and doesn't seem to lose grip. I tend to go through my flick and ollie areas much faster than my soles anyway. I threw in some FP gamechangers in and these are the perfect shoe for my 44 year old aching legs. EMERICA, please don't stop making these shoes!
