Globe Odin S2 Skate Shoe - Men's
By Odin's raven, this shoe is light! The lightweight, breathable version of Chris Haslam's pro model, the Odin S2 Men's Skate Shoe, features mesh in the upper to prevent swampfoot, and the Nitrolite midsole and Featherlite outsole reduce weight without compromising grip or support.
- Suede upper is abrasion-resistant with mesh for breathability
- Nitrolite S2 midsole is lightweight and provides solid lateral support
- S-Trac sole features traction lugs for shock absorption and grip, and flex grooves for board feel
- TPU molded heel cup cradles your heel for support and cushioning

I dig the Odin, they are pretty cushy for a for a low profile shoe, of course not as amazing as their bulkier companion. I purchased the black/red iteration of the shoe.
The ventilation on the sides is great, my feet get super sweaty on a daily basis. I like the black and the ventilation gives a cool shine and texture to the look.
The laces are a bit odd, they aren't traditional laces they are flat and waxy. The shoes come with a draw string clasp (the plastic slide that closes most laundry bags, whatever those are called) that I'm assuming you can use instead of tying them. I didn't find them overly useful. I'd prefer if the tongue had an eyelet for the laces to go through, I prefer to not bend over to pull my shoe on, all in all not a big deal. The tongue is nicely thick I dropped a soup can on my foot and didn't bruise.
Overall a solid shoe I haven't done any tricks with them, but they feel good with a board under you and look awesome. I haven't gotten a pair of Globes in 10 yrs. I'm glad they still have the same quality and comfort that got me into my first pair back then.
