I bought these and wore them as my everyday shoe. They were clean and professional enough to wear to my dress code policy office job. Soon after I bought them they graduated to my skating shoe when my other ones wore out. By far the best skate shoe that I have ever skated in the 12 years that I have been skating. very long lasting, durable, light, strong grip and comfortable. If you are looking for the best skate shoe, look no further and go with the Cole lite 3!
