Howdy folks! My name is Hunter, today we will be
reviewing the Converse Chuck Taylor Pro This is a vulcanized shoe, it’s pretty basic. It’s got a standard profile, pretty good for flip tricks. Jumping down stuff however, not too swell. I’d recommend going a half size down. I personally wear a 9 in Nike and Vans, This is an 8.5 Everyone’s foot is gonna be a little bit different. Generally speaking it will have more of a narrow fit. Over time it will break in and stretch out. So as far as flip tricks go,
the shoe will feel a bit wonky at first. It’s gonna feel a bit bulky towards the toecap region. However, when you start breaking in the shoe, it’s gonna be a bit more malleable, you’ll start getting a little bit more of a boardfeel. The CX Foam is going to be the new insole in this shoe. Basically, it’s just the updated model
which means it’s not gonna pack out as easily. The lifetime is gonna be a little bit longer. Jumping down stuff, not the best.
Overall boardfeel is pretty prime. The best part of the shoe is you really don’t have to worry about tearing through the rubber underlayer. In this region that is. So I’ve been skating these shoes
off-and-on for about a month or two. The biggest wear down areas, for me personally is gonna be in the heel. Second place is gonna be in the flip trick region. The only complaint that I have about the shoe is the rubber traction on the bottom It does tend to wear down a little bit quicker than most. I think I’ve had to change out the laces once with these, But overall, after off-and-on a few months of skating these have been holding up pretty good. These little eyelets right here actually do a good amount of justice as far as breathability goes. I’ll catch myself a lot of the time during the Summer when I’m not wearing these shoes and they don’t have these little eyelets right here. My shoes tend to get really sweaty and swampy really fast. but with these little brethabilities, they definitely do some justice. I would recommend this shoe for any street skater. So long as you’re not jumping down anything too big. Any transition skaters or tech skaters, this will be an ideal shoe. If you are jumping down stuff, I personally would recommend an after market insole. But, overall this shoe’s got good flip, good boardfeel, nothing too tech, and pretty straight forward and to the point. Once again this is the Chuck Taylor Pro by Converse.
