Skate shoes?

Recommended Posts

I still mostly wear half cabs. Just feel right. I got some Vans syndicate dills but I dunno the syndicate drilex fabric is too slippy.

 

The challenge court sbs are good for cup sole/more padded. Hell of tongue slip though. May f with Koston 2s next.

Just got some Busnitz ADV in black and they are ridiculously nice. The toe is perfect.

 

yeah those are nice.  how sturdy is the mesh collar?

i imagine it somehow getting shredded up by grip tape over time

I think they put it together pretty well. The exposed foam parts just barely surround the ankle, the rest of the collar is just the same suede that's on the toe. I don't really anticipate it getting shredded.

I just began skating the vans chima pro, in blue floral.

 

They are the type of shoes that feel like they are going to slip off your feet even though you tied the laces up hard.

 

I put a hole through the canvas in the first skate, and they gave my toes mad blisters.

 

I wish i had of just kept them for wearing normally.

why would you skate these the construction looks like shit, and obviously has little support around the ankle.

A bit of adventure / leap of faith

It's not long before a new pair of skate shoes are usually upon my feet, no big deal

I usually skate the dc council.

does anyone skate NB numerics? 

 

i wore vans for a while because they were grippy. but most of the models were either too heavy or offered little support. i switched to adidas and have been pretty pleased. i wore campus vulc for one year then switched to busenitz (non-vulc).

 

i also heard good things about DC chris coles but DC is just not steezy enough.

If it's anything like the previous version (non-vulcanised sole), it'll be a 1/2~1 size small depending on how wide your foot is.

Yup.. Tried them on and went up a full size. Think the workout is a women's shoe.

I have been skating the Brian Anderson SB's and I have to say I am impressed.. Super grippy and great shock absorption..Third pair in three months 3  2 hour sessions a week..I should be getting fit..

cosign to the BAs. the fact that it looks more like running shoe is also a plus for me because i feel like im stuntin harder on non-skate days like when im casually walking around whole foods getting some of that good good.

About to go over from kostons to the BA's. The impact/comfort of BAs looks really nice.  Also want to try the One Shots out.
