These boots are incredibly comfortable; the second I put my feet in they fit perfect and need almost no breaking in. They are wide boots and are especially comfortable compared to any burton boots which are geared towards narrower feet. They are extremely flexible and awesome to walk around in. The only issue I have found with them is that when placing them in a stiff aluminum binding it does not provide as much ankle support as desired. Otherwise its an incredible boot.

I love the way these shoes look; they are like combination of the wino and the laced. With that said, I feel like emerica could have stepped up their game a bit on the construction. The heel is not very supported and is hard to get on without completely untying and retying the shoe entirely. They wear quite fast, which is expected for single layer toe-cap, but do have good feel. They are quite a cool shoe, but not too much of an improvement over the wino or laced in terms of comfort or skating ability.

This is the only pair of shoes I skate; I refuse to skate anything else because not only is the feel amazing on these shoes, but its a good blend of support, feel, durability, and weight. I have skated most brands and almost all emericas, but these last above average because of the double stitched toe-cap but still had the close feel because they are slim fitting to the foot and comfortable. Last about 2-3 months of daily skating which is pretty good, at least in my experience (i've had lakai's and es's last for less than a month and fallens for almost 4 months). They also have a decently thick sole, even though it wears through pretty quick. Overall, best combination of shoe there is to offer without sacrificing at least one attribute.

For 25 bucks you can't really go wrong with the Icon 2's. I own several icon 2's as well as a handful of icon's and both are great for riding and fit well over a beanie. The Icon 2's, however, have a rubber band underneath the top section of the headphone, which helps them stay on, compared to the icon 1's. I wear them everyday walking to class and such and they are a little tough to keep on your head unless you have a beanie or goggles to hold them on. They're also tough to keep on if you're wearing a fitted. Otherwise, theyre the sexiest looking headphones ever and some of the most durable. They also sound pretty decent for 25 bucks and get real loud, definitely enough to go through at least a hood and a beanie.
