Awesome Shoes11/22/13 by Shakey JoeI bike at least a few miles every day and was hesitant to get these because I figured Vans were just the same. I've had these for about 5 months now and they still look pretty much brand new. The soles are hella strong/thick and don't flex like vans do when you're biking and especially when you're track standing. They are somewhat comfortable, but I put insoles in them and they're awesome. I know they're meant for biking but they're my only pair of shoes right now. I like how they look, and they're a good every day shoe even though some might not agree. An all around kickass shoe and definitely worth every penny. Also I'm now trying the waterproof storm version of shoes similar to these because I'm so satisfied with this purchase
Good customer service4/26/13 by AndrewI bought these shoes at the store in SF and wore them for a day. They were very uncomfortable for me, so I brought them back and they exchanged them for the Truk's. The Truk's are a much better shoe for me. These shoes are made for cycling, so I don't wear them everyday, but they are nice and I will wear them on the weekends and when I am riding my bike. Thanks for the good customer service!
My favorite4/26/13 by Sean GreggThe Kursk has been a staff fav for a long time and t's easy to understand why. I purchased these in the grey with red accents and loved them to pieces-literally. I loved to ride in then, they are comfortable to walk in, feature metal ends to the laces so no frayed craptastistic laces. Were they indestructible? No but they took a pounding and looked fresh for well over a year, at over 250 lbs these puppies had a lot to complain about with me leaning on them. I found them to run more true to size than most companies.
