Stiff, Strong Shoes

Title says it all. I like stiff shoes. My favourite shoes were old 6.0's, I'm looking for a similar stiffness to those.
I've been riding Nike Janoski's and they are stiff enough i suppose, and I'll resort back to those if need be.
I was considering Almond and maybe Lotek but since they aren't sold anywhere around here I have no idea how stiff they are.

Also, I'd rather shoes that don't fall apart like Vans.

Don't really want to get another pair of janoski's because i have rather wide feet and hate too big sizes so wearing them in was hell.

I bet Loteks would be nice, maybe some Etnies. People seem to really like those.

+2 etnies aren't bad

The same thing i recommend to everyone: Osiris.
Everyone dislikes them but i love them so hard, doesn't even matter to me that they left BMX i wore them before i started riding too.

I loved my loteks for the first few weeks until they fell apart, they come apart at the seams very fast. Also loteks aren't stiff at all. I'd stick to Nike, etnies or vans

From what i've seen most places just don't stock as many as they used to, probably because 13 yr olds are trying to be hipsters now instead of the scene/emo shit that everyone liked when i was 13. I don't think they went out of business, vital just had a thing on them a few days ago http://www.vitalbmx.com/news/news/Devon-Smillie-Sean-Burns-off-Osiris,8579

if you can get some nike sb on sale, do it
i had some nike teams that i got on sale and even after they were too small and super worn out, they felt great and were still sturdy and not floppy
the grip wasnt bad either
