        These shoes are freakin' aweosome! They look awesome, they last a long time (if you take care of them) and did I mention they look cool? The only complaint I have is that they do come apart @ the heel even if you don't drag your feet. All in all, though a great shoe to get!

        We ordered these shoes for 2 purposes: my son's 8th grade "promotion" and for him to ride BMX at Woodward West. They were beautiful and looked great for promotion, but by the end of his week at camp (less than one month after purchasing), they were pretty much trashed. We purchased them on May 20th. He is going back to school on July 19th, less than 2 months after purchase, and I have to buy him new shoes because these have already fallen apart. One of the reasons I ordered these was that they were marketed as "pros" and for active sports. If they can't withstand riding a bike (not even daily) for 2 months, these are not professional - or acceptable - quality. I will not be ordering Vans again for my son and would like to get my money back for these shoes.

          Comments about Half Cab Pro:

          I've been wearing Vans since the late 70's, and I've owned quite a few Half Cabs since they were released and always loved everything about them. I was a serious skater (mostly vert) in my teens and twenties. Now that I'm a bit too old to take skating too seriously, I still wear and love Vans for their style and comfort. I would give the Half Cabs that I just bought recently via this site 5 stars all around EXCEPT for the fact that in the all black color way, the outer tongue is made of a synthetic, nylon like mesh which causes the tongues to constantly move around. The right shoe's tongue slides all of the way over to the right, and the same on the left. I'm CONSTANTLY adjusting them! It drives me nuts. I am definitely wearing the correct size and tightening the laces as much as I can tolerate. I'll be careful to only buy my favorite Vans styles without this slippery tongue in the future. I do say that Half Cabs are good for all of the uses mentioned, except for these all black ones, and I say that I wouldn't recommend them to a friend only in this color. There are Half Cabs that don't have the same tongue. Go for those! Just my 2 cents on this particular color Half Cab!

              Comments about Half Cab Pro:

              I have owned many a pair of these shoes and they never disappoint. Comfort, style, and simplicity. I tell everyone to scoop up a pair. Many people not in the skating world comment on their basic styling and that they "look really comfy". I always agree and steer them in the vans website's direction. My only sticking point is that I will only buy cabs with the gum color sole. Just personal preference. I personally love the black w/ gum and the gunmetal grey w/ gum. These colorways are not always available so it sucks when my old ones wear out. I should stock up when those colors are issued. I am a size 10.5 which I've found to be extremely common so they sell out fast. I'm hoping you issue the black w/ gum again soon so I can stock up. They are beauty at it's finest. Thanks so much for your time. -Scott K.

              i wear my half cabs every day, i clean them all the time. the shoe looks great its pretty tough, and its pretty sturdy. but the thing that ruined the rep for me is the foxing started to come apart at the bottom where the grip and it meets, thats the first time Ive ever had that happen to me, Ive never had a pair of shoes with a dura-cap on it before, and this never happened to them

                I use this shoe every day to skate in. I have had one pair of shoes for several months and their still holding up. I absolutely love them. They're good for both street skateboarding and casual wear. The sole is extremely thick, and the shoe itself is extremely durable and very good looking.
