This takes some getting used to. The shoe is super comfortable but could have used a few vent holes. The tongue is thick but comfy and so is the heel section. The protection in the heel section doesn't seem to be present but for those never untying their shoes will love this. The looks? People buy the craziest coloured shoes these days and compared to those the Grey/Black/White Oncores are rather normal looking. It's not so much the looks, it's the brand you have on your feet. If they would have supported BMX for a long time, it would be a different story. Your shoes reflect who you are and what you do. Nike doesn't give that feeling to me. But hey, they're trying.
