This is Vans' spring 2011 core Chukka line up. I was very impressed with the pair I skated in summer so I ordered another pair to come in for the beginning of the new skate season. The grey suede Chukka with the gum sole should be in within the next two months. This shoe is completely suede, compared to my last being partially canvas. Hopefully it will last a bit longer than the last pair. Should be a good change from my Blazer SB's and Campus Vulc considering they have a lot better board feel.
