Michael Hillwrote a review of Vans Chukka Low Pro Skate Shoe - Men's on June 19, 2017
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I've owned at least 20 pairs of these over the last 15 years. Right now I think I have 5 pairs in my closet. Simple, clean look, and functional. It also helps that I have a really wide forefoot and they break in really nice after a couple days of wearing them. Protip - If you're like me and hate lacing up shoes especially skate shoes. When you lace them to the top eyelet instead of tying them, cross them back down to the second eyelet just like you would lace them going up. Then go cross them once more to the top eyelet. You should be left with about an inch or two of lace that you can just tuck under the laces on top of the tongue. Won't loosen up on you and you don't have laces snagging on anything while skating.
