    Question Skate shoes

    Hello everyone! Which skate shoe you wear?

    Are Vans old skool good for a beginner? I am thinking to order one pair this month

    (If mentioning a product, in not a part of the forum rules, please delete it)

    You're welcome (and encouraged!) to talk about skate products, but please do so in the designated subforums. I just moved this thread for ya.


    I really like Vans, but they can be a bit misleading because not all of their shoes were made with skating in mind. Generally I go for pro models or the actual pro series shoes, which are just updated versions of older models. They do make Old Skool Pros, so I would get those.

    Emerica and Lakai are good skate shoe brands.

    Thank you very much, for moving it, to be honest I didn't notice the shoes subforum

    So you are telling to go for pro right? I haven't found pro in my shoe size here in Greece. I have found for the Vans authentic. What do you think about them?

    I skate Adidas, specifically the Busenitz pro model. They're good for what I want in a shoe, and I support my favorite skater when I buy them. They're a bit on the expensive side though. Just do some research online before you buy anything (I know you're already doing this right now but still), usually when I do this I look up the website of the brand selling the shoe for information. maybe look up some youtube reviews if there is any. One of the most important things is stay away from canvas if you want any durability. suede and leather seem to be where it's at.

    I get most of my shoes off ebay, most of the shoes I find are Globes so I have been skating them for awhile. They're pretty good, got a pair right now that are like tanks.

    fallen went out of business years ago, éS was on a hiatus for a while but were brought back a few years ago with no real team (just a few ambassadors like kelly hart) and mostly slimmed down re-issues of their classic shoes in their catalog, they're in a weird place right now.

    to OP, fallen and éS are / were names of skate shoe brands

    I personally have really good luck with durability from DC. Mainly the "S" models which stand for super suede.

    Soo I am between: Vans Sk8-Hi slim, Vans Sk8-Hi, Nike Sb stefan janoski gs university and Nike Sb zoom stefan janoski man

    Vans sk8-Hi slim: features sturdy canvas uppers, padded collars for support and flexibility

    Vans sk8-hi: features sturdy canvas and suede uppers, re-enforced toecaps to withstand repeated wear, padded collars for support and flexibility

    Nike sb stefan janoski gs university: Leather and suede upper for comfort and style
    Low-cut profile for enhanced range of motion
    Nike Zoom Air in the sockliner for responsive cushioning
    Vulcanised rubber midsole for cushioning
    Durable rubber outsole with herringbone pattern for great traction

    Nike Sb stefan janoski zoom max: Leather and synthetic upper for supreme comfort
    Nike Zoom for low-profile cushioning and lightweight performance
    Autoclave construction fuses the outsole to the upper for a classic, streamlined look and feel
    One-piece heel to midfoot overlay for streamlined support
    Perforations at vamp for breathability
    Rubber outsole with herringbone traction pattern for durability, superior grip and easy change of direction

    Mm hard decision for me
