Who should not buy it

With no initial tightness to deal with, the Vans Era S is a great alternative to the SB Chron 2 Canvas. There are also no discoloring issues in the Nike SB Force 58, so check it out instead of the featured shoe.

Stun the crowd in canvas

The SB Chron 2 Canvas has raked in quite a number of aesthetic-centric comments, such as "the design is simple but adorable" and "definitely like the sleek styling of the shoe." But arguably, the two best ones are "dope-looking canvas sneaker" and "its monochromatic styling makes even larger feet look good."

Lavish comfort in the SB Chron 2 Canvas

Many reviewers find the Nike SB Chron 2 Canvas exceptionally comfy. The following remarks reflect their hype for it:

  • "Extremely comfortable."
  • "A nice, comfy skateboarding shoe!"
  • "WAYYY more comfortable than the Heritage."

PS: That third and final comment is mostly focused on the insole of the featured shoe. For the reviewer, the kick's default footbed is so much more comfortable than the one in the Nike SB Heritage Vulc.

Say goodbye to achy arches

Among the main draws of the Nike SB Chron 2 Canvas is its ability to brace the foot, making wearers worry less about wearing out their arches. It's "surprisingly supportive," says a non-professional reviewer. Another one says that it has "a nice supporting inner sole that presses up your arch," which in turn gives you all the underfoot support you need.

But it has a break-in period

There are those who find the SB Chron 2 Canvas a bit tight overall initially. "They were a little snug at first," says one of them. The same reviewer, however, reassures sneakerheads that past its average break-in period, the shoe loosens up just right.

Responsive rides in the SB Chron 2 Canvas

In the SB Chron 2 Canvas, you'll get more than enough board feel, especially around the forefoot. One skater links this remarkable sensitivity to the shoe's toe-hugging (but not smothering) forefoot section.
