Fallen Chief comes in a Vegan colorway for the Holiday ’11 collection! The upper is all synthetic nubuck, which in my opinion is the best material to use when making any skateboard shoe. The tongue and collar have some nice padding, and the soles are vulcanized for good board feel. I’ve wanted to skate the Chief for sometime, but this is the first I can remember it being released in a vegan material.
Black Box has the most sizes on their site, also the most expensive. If you want a deal maybe check out Utility or Skate Warehouse. Bummer if you wear 8s.

Back in 2006 they had the Chief in synthetic nubuck, and it is still my all-time favorite skate shoe to date.
