They are a Christmas gift for my grandson so no review yet. However, shopping for them was so pleasant at the Southside skate shop. The two young men in the shop were great.
Southside Skatepark SkateshopI am glad to hear that staff was attentive and helpful. From what others are saying the Vans Rowan Pro is the most comfortable Vans shoe they have ever owned, so fingers crossed your grandson enjoys them! Happy Holidays!
