Good board feel, and no problems with the laces. I had to superglue the sole back (only the toe portion) on the right shoe after a week of use, so other than having to do that a few other times the shoes lasted a little over a month and a half.
Really diggin' these divisions. I haven't had a pair of Etnies in a while, but these definitely fit the bill. Super comfortable and true to the fit. Love the classic look and happy I went with the Navy Blue, literally matches everything!
