in a booth that has cushioned carpet. Feels good doesn't it? Well these shoes give you that cushioned feeling all day long. Puts a smile on my face. They might not be for riding but we don't ride 24/7 do we? Oh yeah, in case you do not know who Ryan Villopoto is, he won last week's SX beating everyone and that includes James "Bubba" Stewart and Chad Reed. Ryan's the real deal. He rides BMX too. If you fancy comfy Vans shoes, get these.
