I will, quite honestly, pay a GREAT DEAL OF MONEY for a pair of these in 6.5. I've search everywhere, and it seems like the lowest size I can find is a men's 8. :cry: :cry: :cry:

Matt Cross speaks the truth.

I also sleep in smelly used up shred socks for a change of pace as well.

My friend showed me these on zappo. Have these always been here? If so, my bad for being out of the loop.

http://www.zappos.com/n/p/p/7207638/c/151.html

All black mesh lavers?

White, light blue top mesh lavers?

Pricey though.

Hey guys...

So those bitchen Camo G-Units that Sergy and Jim seem to love so much are on a ridiculous sale on 6pm.com

I just bought a pair for 57$ w/ shipping! they are typically $80-$90

I bought the second to last pair of 12's but hurry and buy the rest, they are getting rarer and rarer these days.

I've heard that the camo mesh G-units are a little tighter than the leather version. I fit a boy/youth size 5.5 leather G-unit pretty snug, so would a size 6.5 men's size work for me?

And does the mesh G-unit get considerably more roomy if I mod out all of the cushioning from all sides, save the tongue?

PS: http://www.villageshoes.com/adrodladp.html

$70 USD, with sizes ranging from 8 ( :mad: ) to 13. For some reason, no image is available to tag into this thread.

Actually my pair plays a lot better when they are a bit looser than normal shoes.

They fit my feet perfectly as do Lavers, whereas Q's hug the big toe.

The shoes themselves are amazing. They are bulkier than Quantums, but the clipper is amazing. the bag slides down the shoe and hits the all of the soul as you set so no matter how haggard you land a trick, if you can manage to stall the bag and make some sort of set motion, the bag goes straight up every time.

it's awesome. hope you guys take advantage. :)

to answer your question..

I think a 5.5-6.0 will work perfectly for you.

The shoes are outrageously cushioned so if you do take out all of the cushioning it will increase the size considerably.

As a side option. I'm not too sure how these shoes weigh, though.

I think the colors look great, imo.

edit: Also, there are some qualities of the shoe that doesn't seem like they are similar to skate shoes. At least the shoe has a decent clipper in a way, although not as big as the Rod Laver or G-unit.

Yeah, I guess they should work for someone with small feet. My first shred shoes were converse with a great instep.
