I am redoing this review as there is much more information on it as opposed to my previous on I wrote.

Basics: The eS PJ Ladd signature shoe is the first pro model made for the company. It comes in different colorways, such as the brown/gum color I have, black/red/gum, brown/grey, blue/black/white, and many others. It can come in leather and suede material construction. It is built with an STI foam technology in the footbed for cushioning, and System G2 heel cushioning for more protection on your heels.

Price: I have seen around on sites that these shoes sell for roughly $39.95 American. I bought mine for $60 at West49 in my local mall.

Durability: I have skated these shoes for a total of 6 months, with the first 4 months having them shoe goo'd. They have faired pretty well in the 2 month period, having only being ripped nearly 2 layers on the the upper toe section where you kickflip. The tongue of the shoe started to form a hole in it from when I was adjusting my kickflips, which was about 3 months ago. The rubber outsole is lasting very well compared to other shoes I've skated. Both base and kickflip side have minimal wear from the 6 months of skating in them. I would suggest shoe gooing slightly on the kickflip area.

Boardfeel: The moment I slapped these shoes on and skated them, I felt the board as good as my previous shoes I had skated.

Comfort: This is a fairly comfortable shoe. The technologies put into it give it a soft, but supported feel. If the board happens to somehow to hit your feet, it wont hurt very bad compared to lots of other shoes. A bad thing is landing primo with these, because the outsole is slightly slimmer than other shoes, and it hurts your feet pretty bad.

Overall: I suggest these shoes to all skaters who like their shoes fairly durable with a good starting board feel.

Thanks, 4 of the months the shoes were lathered in shoe goo.
