Fallen has yet to be featured on Ripped Laces so I'm hyped as a pig in shit. Their are a ton of new pro models, which I'm really excited about because Fallen seems to be at the forefront of supporting their team riders with signature colorways and pro models. Check out the new releases from Tom Asta, Billy Marks, James Hardy, Slash and some fucking awesome collaborations. Fallen also seems to be introducing some new and soon to be common technology with FLX. FLX or Flexology footwear construction uses a lightweight eva midsole and provides the heel protection of a cupsole designed shoe with the similar boardfeel and break-in timing of a vulcanized shoe. Be on the look out for models featuring FLX.

I've heard nothing but great things about the Forte but have yet to skate them. I've heard it's performance has continued to gain praise with the Forte mid. Honestly, the mid isn't at all that high but is strategically put together to give you the protection where you need it without the bulky or sometimes uncomfortable, and overwhelming feeling of a mid.

Spring 2012 looks promising with the release of James Hardy's pro shoe, the "Rambler". Their has been some debate as to whether it's too soon but if you've seen his Real part then you know that he deserves every bit of it. The Rambler features FLX techonolgy and is reinforced with a heavy-duty suede throughout to expand the shoes life span. James Hardy did it right by also reinforcing the ollie area in the Rambler, so expect to be wearing these for a while.

The "Vice" is the latest signature shoe from Billy Marks and Fallen footwear. It's another simple skate shoe that you can throw on and enjoy anywhere, from the skate park to the casino. The Vice has a traditional one piece toe cap and comes with custom Toy Machine art work on the insole to give you that extra sect power you'll need to make your next trick. It features heavy-duty suede, just like most models on Fallen and has a vulcanized sole for your instant skating needs.

The Bomber is a team signature model that I couldn't ignore. The colorways alone make this shoe extremely appealing and it's traditional silhouette is a classic in the skateboard world. The Jack Curtin model in particular looks amazing and was my personal favorite out of the four colorways.
