My shreders are globes (skate shoes) that i have COMPLETELY disasembled. They went from like a pound to maybe 1/2 pound. Added toe box everything, but they are almost ragged out after two or three sessions, hopefully my twill lavers will come in soon. Has any7one had expeirience with these?

what was your experience with the "trim the toe cap on the outside surface" mod? also, may I ask, what your thinking was when you chose to do that mod?

easy to do.... and it made the toe area wider, allowing more space for my feet inside.

I finally finished modding my climas to the extent that I'd like. Did a pretty shotty job on the insides, but it could have been worse. First time modding shoes past a toe box :)

I guess I'll get around to do those eventually. I'll be honest, I kinda like the cup :wink: Next time I'm at a hardware store I'll get the caulking and take it from there. I searched through roughly 20 pages for pics of the mesh mod but was unsuccessful. But after reading a couple posts it doesn't sound too hard. I guess I'll repost the shoes whenever I'm done

I second kyle's suggestions. I hate those cups. I can't imagine how someone would like them.

removing the first layer of the toe is super super super easy. good luck!
