    Wink Vans are the absolute worst skate shoes.

    Maybe they weren't real Vans but these mother fuckers got rekt in under and hour and in 5 minutes it already had a hole. Definitely don't recommend Vans. Etnies, Emerica, and Nike SB are the best. Do yourself a favor and never buy Vans if you do flip tricks.

    Plus the majority of people caught wearing them are those kids in thrasher hoodies
    that have never stepped foot on a skateboard in their lives.

    In Hawaii, many people wear skate clothing as fashion. Here, in Vancouver, I mainly see Nike and Adidas.

    Vans are absolute poser trash shoes. I'd rather skate airwalks over vans given the choice.

    Vans use to be my favorite skateboard shoe brand back in like 2001 and they were the only shoes that felt super comfortable with the board fell. When I got older I realized the shoes are shit unless they are the pro model shoe. The regular ol skool waffle grip thinned out shoes arent worth skating in unless you want a heel bruise or blisters easily. The pro model shoes are good tho but everything else is shit.

    Leave it to the high school non-skaters and the 50 year old women in corporate accounting departments to support the pros on Vans. They'll be just fine.

    You probably bought canvas ones that weren't built for skating. I'm skating some Kyle Walker Pros right now and they're incredible.

    I own a pair of vans that I wear in between, I don't just put on 1 pair of shoes but I do wear vans.

    To each their own about skate shoes, and if you feel that strong about it then it won't bother me.

    I've never worn vans before and will never start. They don't really look like they're made for skating... they just look like Punk clicke type thing.

    My first pair of shoes were Vans at the discount store when my parents were short on cash.

    Vans pro shoes skate sooooo good! Skating authentic pros right now and they're mint!

    Yeah I bought a few pairs of Vans because I had a JC Penny card and they sold them. Absolutely no support, but they use so much glue on their crappy insoles that it takes some major excavation work to get them out to upgrade them. Didn't last very long and a little on the pricey side for being so unimpressive. If I hit the sales I can get a couple pairs of Emericas for the same price as a single pair of Vans. My Nike SBs from Penny's are also superior for the same money the Vans were.

    If you plan on skating Vans, I'd say swing by the FP insoles site and order up some gamechangers to go with them.

    They have amazing boardfeel though. I agree they don't last as long as other shoes but get suede ones and they'll bless ya
