- Name: 2008 Gravis Alpine Skate Shoes Men's
- Pros: Durable, Style,
- Cons: Sole slippery,
I got these in black with red laces with the hope of using them when the weather was too gross for sneakers, but not so bad it required full on boots. Wanted to use them for driving up to VT when its snowing out. Some weather protection, but easier to drive 5 hours in than snow boots.
I used sno-seal bees wax on them to waterproof them which makes them awesome in snow and slush except for the sole.
It has a normal sneaker sole, which is cool for driving in but makes htme dangerously slippery in snow. Not having super knobby sole protrusions was what attracted me to his kind of hybrid sneaker/boot, but I wish the soles were just a tad more grippy.
Happy with them, but would not buy again for this purpose.
