not even! DC's are great!
(well some are)
those ones that look like white leather are hideous... but ryan smith shoes are nice. and DC hardly ever rips. but anyways, that might be a good idea.

Circa's = <3, i loved my OLD circa's, the ones Jamie tomas wore in dying to live, the big bulky black ones. They fit like a cloud and took an ass whipping, they were super sexy with that standard's 2000's cookie cutter shape of a shoe and came in black, white, grey or beige that was it, no funky colours, or Numourous colours. Or my #1 shoe i ever wore that i wish i could find again is the " Globe " Tensor Edition" mullen 3's", I LOOOOOVED those shoes White/grey/orange with a big shiny Tensor logo. I had them for 2 years till i grew out of them, skated 5 hours a day, daily with my friends, and they lasted till the heel/toe wore our from walking.

Dang haha... intense.
I'm scared to try a bulky shoe though. I've always ridden vulcanized lows of mids, and getting a bulky shoe seems so different. I can't even imagine myself doing switch flips or nollie flips with a bulky shoe like circas or DC's. How different are they? I mean they don't even look grippy.

im pretty sure that after this trip is over, im going to go live in the wild away from any type of society. Damn it its my dream, and just think about it! no worry about jobs, money, school- nothing!

think about it. there are but 2 essentials in life for survival, that is food and water.
tv's, couches, beds, computers, rugs, sinks- all that simple stuff is all just a convenience. Why would anyone want to live in this society that expects so much of you? and the government controling so many aspects of our lives.


sorta ranting on that last part, but seriously.

i brought this topic up a while back, and i wanna hear what u guys have to say again Very Happy
