Designed For the Wake skate crew using water friendly materials that last and having Mesh sides that allow water to drain quickly and easily. These sneeks are definatly different ! and if you wake skate there probably a must ! More than likely they will just be a wonderful way of wearing shoes thru the summer months (if we get any summer!) without getting mad sweaty feet ! which suck ! and smell ! Ask Moxy from the Breaks Collective about these he has been wearing them since we opened back in 2003 ! sorry for jumping on ya style with these dude but hey there good !!!!
