Vans are probably my favorite ever, but lately they've been coming out with some goofy hipster looking shoes. Right now i'm just rocking some all black chuck's. A lot of the skater style of shoes I've been noticing look too much like fucking moon boots and are made in really ugly colors/designs.

I used to dig Etnies, but they stopped making the ones that I like, so fuck them. Right now I'm rocking a pair of Fallens (Slash) and I'm really happy with them. I wouldn't suggest any Fallens with plain rubber soles on them to anyone though as they wear out really fast. These have gum soles on them and they're holding up really well.

Chris Cole's Trooper was my first favorite shoe. I liked Dennis Busenitz pro shoe for adidas. Can't go wrong with a pair of Old Skool Vans or a pair of Half Cabs.

I wish Vans still made suede Slip ons. Those things were tight.

vision street wear dv8's were sick.  penny loafers, not so much.

that's all we rode in the '80's.

I liked all the TNT shoes. Seems like now everything is either super thin hipster kicks or flashy giant foot tanks.

For sure you cant go wrong with vans that was my first real skate shoe as well.

Does VSW still exist in N America? They have them here, and a couple guys I know ride for them. Look the same as they did 20+ years ago.

i've seen a few pairs.  making a comeback?  i'll never forgive the asshole who stole my low top grey VSW. those were sick. it was 1989, i think.

Vans have been hurting my feet lately. I need to try out a few brands. I want to try some Axion's (even though KC has nothing to do with the reincarnation) or maybe some HUF's.

For skating, I think overall my preference is vans old schools. I'm sure price factors in, since they're relatively cheap, but they seem to last as long or longer than most of the other shoes I skate, and they strike a good balance of letting me feel the board while not feeling like I'm barefoot.

For looking sweet, I've been feeling adidas for the past couple of years. Campus vulcs and adi ease. Haven't skated in them though.

I've been skating some cheap Tony Hawk shoes. They're basically vans era rip-offs but they only cost $20. I actually really like them, considering I love skating thin canvas shoes, but hat spending $40-$50 bucks on shoes that are only gonna last 2 weeks tops.

i skate vans, there good to skate in and heaps comfortable.

Vans rule of course but I'm seriously digging my Emerica Hsus - they have some STI foam inside that make a huge difference in my old fat feet hurting after some hard slappies.  I think they are about to launch a new version because I'm seeing them on discount sites.

im in love with vox slackers. i ordered from the site cause they didnt have any vox at my local shop. they sent my a shit ton of extras, and an extra signed shoe by some members of the team. the shoes have lasted me for a very long time, about 3 months now. i also really like habitat quests, if they still make those. i dont really like lakais. also, getting the hemp vans is a retarded idea. they lasted me less than a month. haha.

i loved my es excel, muska, koston 1 , sal 23, airwalk tony hawk mids, dc flawless maybe and there was a mid top version spartian maybe??  i hated my emerica senn, dc apex , lynx.   Mid-Late 90's to eary 2000s was the best time in skateboarding footware.  now it seems everything is either super basic looking like 70's slip ons with shitty vulcianized soles or they are white, florescent green and hot pink

I hate DC footwear. No one but kooks, and jocks wear them.
The shoes I was skating before breaking my ankle were the Nike Janoski's. To me, they're one of the best shoes out there. I also loved my first pair of Adidas Busenitz.

Can't go wrong with Vans TNT 5 or the Rowley SPVs.


Title: Re: Which shoes do you love/hate?
Post by: Matt Fairfield on March 17, 2013, 05:31:39 PM
+1 for the TNT five. The era pro has a ridiculous amount of boardfeel but kneesliding on vert destroys shoes. The emerica Reynolds is one im surprised i havent heard on here. easily one of emericas best shoes. Recently been sporting some Nike SB dunk mid pro's. ill say they are the most comfortable skate shoe ive skated but they suck for skating the bowls with.


Title: Re: Which shoes do you love/hate?
Post by: David Blevins on March 22, 2013, 10:57:59 AM
Reynolds 3 for sure. Not to much bulk not to thin. Vulc outsole with an eva mid sole super nice shoe.  Just got the Supra hammer to try something different great shoe if you like the thin light feeling.  I'm sticking to the reynolds 3 myself for skating keeping the hammers for chillin and cruisin.

Nike Dunk Low pro SB. Comfortable as fuck, and also last you a pretty good while. At first they may feel a little awkward (in comparison to Vans, Adidas, etc.) but once you get used to them they skate pretty damn good and grow to feel pretty light IMO.

Any suggestions for the best skate shoes that can take flip trick beatings?

I had each of Leo Romeros most recent shoes and I couldn't get rid of them. I'd skate for a month and a half which isnormal shoe life for me, but a new pair of something else and soon realize the Romeros looked better than the new ones and put them back on. I skate flat a lot too.

So far SB Dunks 4 me. I had some halfcab super tuff suedes that are real nice too, cept the soles wore out a lot faster than it seems the dunks soles will 4 me.

the newest lakai howard pr model shoe is by far the best shoe ive ever skated, super slim profile, suede, laces are higher up so they dont tear, cupsole. everything about them is perfect


Title: Re: Which shoes do you love/hate?

currently Vans, I don't like massive things on my feet.
I remember buying a pair of Osirus D3's back in the day... those things were horrible.

For a while there was a massive trend in the UK of ripping out your old shoe tongues and putting them in your new ones to make them fatter... everytime dudes did a kickflip you'd see this second set of tongues fly out.

Fucked if I can remember who it was but some US pro came over and made some comment like
"These UK skaters need to take their fucking tongues out of their shoes, put them back in their mouths and then shut them!"
After that no one seemed to do it anymore.

Reynolds shoes are one of the best but if you are trying for something different, then try for raben shoes (http://saltyliquid.com.au/brand/raben/)  once. recently I used it and found very comfortable.

I am in love with my Nike Janoskis. They've lasted me longer than any other shoe that I've owned for skating.
