Guide Review - Fallen Ripper Skateboarding Shoes Review
With the Fallen Ripper, there's nothing extra packed in to make it look fancy or sound cool. It's a pure skateboarding shoe. The low profile, simple old-school shape (though this is more and more becoming current style again!), and all the extra durability and reinforcement - the Fallen Ripper is built for ripping. Simple enough.
But don't think the simplicity makes it a bad shoe - I really like it! Fallen Rippers are comfortable, fit well, hold together, and don't weigh you down. I recommend them. The only drawback that I found was the laces - this is always my problem though, so you might not even need to worry about it! But, for me, I don't like thin laces, and I don't like my lower laces to be exposed. They get ripped up in flip tricks too easily for me. But, everything else about these shoes rocks, so if you haven't had this same problem as me, then maybe don't worry about it!
Basically, if you are looking for a comfortable, stylish, simple in form but complex in design skate shoe, then check out Chris Cole's Fallen Rippers.
