Default Target and Walmart skate shoes?

I was thinking of buying skate shoes from either Target or Walmart because their cheap and im just going to be skating in them so I don't care if they get ruined. I saw some for $25 do guys think they're worth it or should I get name brand skate shoes for more?

You could get shoes for cheap at a skate shop and of much better quality for around $20-30.

My Airspeeds Empires lasted for about 3 weeks w/o shoe goo. Not bad for about $19.50.

Damn Airspeeds are cheaper but they don't have my size. Are Mossimo skate shoes any good?

Well maybe they could have changed in 6 years. I hade some 6 years back when I did not skate. The did not last and the side just ripped to shreds. However like I said they could have changed and made them better.

Airspeeds are amazing, all I've been skating for the past year and they're really cheap.
But if you have a target gift card or something then go for the shaun whites, they're pretty decent.

My friend had Shaun White shoes. He's 12 and he's alright at skating. A hole formed within like a week/week and a half. Don't get them. Go to www.departmentofgoods.com/, they have a lot of cheap shoes from the "big" brands.

I meant on the sole. I guess I forgot to write sole but you were able to fit three fingers through the bottom in a week.

And you must be buying shit shoes because at the skill level you say you're at, shoes shouldn't be ripping that fast unless you skate all day long.

Go support your local shop and pay the extra $5-10 to get shoes from the clearance/sale section

ha ha yeah I do suck (im gettin better). I guess its from my trying flat stuff alot. My shaun whites did not but it did wear down pretty fast now that I think of it. I dont think its the shoes im buying.
EDIT: And like folks say you can get name brand for the same price. To me it does not matter walmart shoes skate fine. http://www.amazon.com/Fallen-Forte-S...782236&sr=8-27 der ya go
