Toxics are better than black pro series. But White pro series wasn't on the list Smile

Just curious: would be interesting to see people post WHY they think 9162 toxics are better than 9201 pro's? Smile

Is it how they feel/work as heelys, or merely a matter of preferring the look of toxics?

I hear a lot of people who say Toxics are better, but I have yet to see any physical differences between the Torch models besides the color scheme.

It may just be color preference... Watch some of Merlyn's vids and tell me which shoes he is wearing.

The style fits the skater. To be honest, I like my Zevos more then my regular Evos, but they both are physically the same. Only difference is me and my Zevos have history together and its hard to break it.

Same thing with the Grind This and the Rails. The GT's felt exactly the same as my Rails, but for some reason my Rails were my favorite shoe...

I heard the only physical diff between toxics and normal torches is that toxics have better insoles.

But I know what you mean about the fave shoes depending on the skater. I believe it's a matter of how well they are broken in to your foot shape and skating style: little things like how worn the heels are would make them easier to skate in.

When I first got my first pair of Torches they were mega tight and it was hard to get my foot in without practically taking the laces right out, but after a few months I could slip them on without even untying the laces. Same now with my 9094 spidey evo's: they're my current favourite for street heeling, although for flatland tricks I prefer either small mega (fitted in a medium mega shoe using custom spacers) or FATs shoes like my reflexes, because the lower heel prevents me from falling back and hitting my head if I fall, so I don't need a helmet when learning in FATs, which saves on overheating Smile

So yeah, it is largely a matter of each to their own, but like any survey if you get enough data a pattern might start to emerge that generally more skaters prefer a given style, which could be useful info. Unfortunatley I doubt that we'll get enough data here: I suspect there aren't enough people with the named shoes to make the data meaningful.
