Ah the iPath Grasshopper. What a skate shoe it is. They are flexible like a grasshopper too. Okay, that sounded pretty lame, pardon me. A lot of features to these famous kicks; an ankle strap for added support, tons of unique colors, great sole for board feel, and a stash pocket for whatever you can imagine.
My pair has seen better days. However, they do still have numerous good sessions in them. Hence they do last awhile. The downside is that they are hard to find these days. I bought mine online. Even skate shops have trouble stocking them.
In the end, the iPath Grasshopper is a great investment from the novice to advanced skateboarder. I’ll rate them a 9/10 because nothing is perfect.
