Not a huge fan of the whips.
I bought them and rode with them for a while but they just didn't feel right to me, so I swapped my mate for his adios.

the last pair of DVS i had were really slimmed down. i liked em. and my last circas were the 205's, so they were big and fat. and my etnies had shock absorbing gel, but they fell apart. and my Duffs were pretty nice. but i like my ipaths the most out of all the shoes ive had in the last two years.

i had the gambler VU. those were pretty comfy. and they held up pretty well to riding. i got em like 4 mths and all thats really worn down is the heel and the ball of the foot. other than that, theyre pretty decent still.
