Guide Review - Fallen Strike Skateboarding Shoe Review
The Fallen Strike skateboarding shoe has a thick padded tongue and thick heel collar, so you can oversize them if you want, or just have a pile of comfort and support. Which will be useful, since Fallen Strikes are just asking to be skated in. With all of this extra added reinforcement and strong design, you can bust out tricks without worry.
Underneath the triple stitched toe cap is a hidden rubber toe cap - this means that you shouldn't blow out the toes very fast in your new Fallen Strikes. The side panels are reinforced as well, and the lace eyelets are reinforced with metal. You'll likely rip up your laces with your technical tricks, but the laces that come with the shoes are stronger than most. They should last you a while.
But what about style? Fallen Strikes have plenty of that - leather logo panels stitched on that look sick, the solid leather profile, and if you really want to go for it, Fallen Strikes are available in a black and white checker pattern.
Do you skate hard? Do you want a shoe that's tough enough to keep up? Try on a pair of Fallen Strikes, and see if you can keep up with them.
