Men's Flip Skate
Have been wearing the Flip for at least 12 years. Really loved the durability, fit, and style of the original Flip which featured suede (real leather) uppers. Lost some points when replaced by the Flip II a couple of years ago - which are all man-made materials. Recently noticed it's now just the "Flip" again, though they are still 100% man-made.
I normally buy two pair at a time, or stagger purchases so I have two "good" pair at a time and rotate wearing them, so they get a day of rest before going out again. Sometimes spend 8-10 hours on my feet and they still feel comfortable (good socks a must to help wick moisture away if you have a tendency to sweat). After 12-15 months, they become yard-work wear, not bad for shoes that are worn a lot and get infrequent brush/wipe off - if any care at all.
Still wish they would bring back the original leather version...

Not the best shoe
I bought these shoes after looking all over the store. When looking at these, the employee who worked there "recommended" them to me because she loved them and wore hers all the time. So I tried them on, and they fit just right, and were not too big or small. So I bought them! However, that was about the only good thing to them. Once I started to wear them, I noticed that you'd feel every single rock or pebble, and you could even feel the rubber sole under the foot padding. Watch out for any amount of water, these shoes soak up water like a sponge! First time wearing them in wet weather, and they were soaked in a few seconds flat and it wasn't even a puddle of water!
For the price I paid, these shoes could of been better. They are right now splitting apart after almost a year of service, and I didn't even use them for skateboarding!

The Greatest of All
The tan version of this Airwalk is the greatest, I have worn it nonstop for the past twelve years. Every time it gets worn out, I replace it with the exact same pair. Thank you Payless for continuing to sell this amazing product. I highly recommend this awesome sneaker. Airwalk 4 Life son you heard?

Not so great anymore
I have wore these shoes for years. The last 3 pairs have come apart at the seams. Tried superglue. Not so good. Ready for a better shoe
ANOTHER GOOD PRODUCT GONE BAD

Very poor quality shoes
I bought these shoes because they looked stylish and the price was right. When I got the shoes, the price was about the only thing that was right. They were a little too small for my feet and the tongue of the shoe was way too big, very awkward.
Within a week, the seams at the front of the shoe were ripping and a good layer of the bottom of the shoe had been scraped off. Absolutely worthless shoes, I would suggest investing your money in a better pair.
