The Black Ball Hi SF in Wade Goodall's signature colorway brings Wade's psychedelic style and a Vans classic aesthetic to the modern comfort you expect from a surf shoe. Made with water-based inks and glues, the Wade Goodall Black Ball Hi SF also features a deconstructed high-top silhouette with signature leather sidestripe and toecap details, canvas uppers, and molded UltraCush sockliners with upgraded cushioning. Classic rubber waffle outsoles with single-wrapped foxing tape offer lightweight comfort.
Upon receipt and initial wear, there is a loud popping sound with every step in one shoe due to the horrible construction of the shoe. I've tried adding a sole, nothing helps. Completely unwearable due to this noise. Also, the low tops have a black stripe around the shoe, which helps break up the sole. These do not have the black stripe, so it makes the sole look extremely thick. Knew that when ordering but they look worse in person.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery times are always horrible. I live in Phoenix, which is just a few hundred miles from where Vams ship from. I've never received a shipment in under 4 business days, and have had it take as long as 6 days.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
