For $53USD, it was a steal. Now, if I can find these shoes in a UK size 6 in burgundy/maroon, I would be sold for life.

Actually , what I did was I took the outer mesh off of the insides, outsides, and the toes, then broka mod , then I taped up all the parts I didnt want red, then spray painted the rest of the shoe.

I find that the brocka mod is nice because of two things,
1. it helps my crank a tiny bit
2. most importantly it allows me to catch the footbag a little higher up on my ankle and not have it roll down as much as if there was a bump there from the ankle support. ( Ive been practicing barefoot more and I feel that this is somewhat closer). 8)

Your old lavers look almost brand new. Do you wash them or anything?

BTW nice logos :)

Yes, that's gum on the side of my shoe. The kids at the Boys and Girls Club don't know how to keep stuff in their mouth.

just found these on the back porch when I went to take the trash out!!!

just my size! I've been playing in 8.5s for the past 5 years or so... I was convinced that the arguably uncomfortable tightness meant my foot wouldn't be sliding around in the shoe, but I've been playing in 9s recently, and loving it. So, these are 9s.

Thanks waylon!

These still had the paper wads stuffed in them and the superfat laces tied in a knot - they look brand new! They even smell brand new. Strange, as there's some rocks and gunk on the sole. The mystery is afoot!

these are my backup pair for worlds in case my fake snake ones / other twill ones don't work out.
BRICK!

I've only worn them out once a long, long time ago, and never really looked back. I've kept them in pristine condition as well.

And I remembered buying them off of ebay, and they had some rocks in the sole once I got them. They're "semi"-new at best. :wink: Enjoy!
