Slim, stylish with good boardfeel. I plan on using these as work shoes for now.
Can't speak to long term durability but they look nice, fit to size, and are decently comfortable. Fit like vans but the suede makes it a bit less flexible. Maybe a bit loose in the back, my heel feels like it slides up a little bit but it doesn't go out or anything, you will need to lace all the way up though.
I’ve been having foot problems from skating a bunch of flat ground and have really fallen in love with the Joslins. The price on them recently went up so I bought the Spanky on clearance. It’s definitely got a solid sole but is taking forever to break in. They are definitely not as padded as I prefer, but are a solid skate shoe.
