Top Skate Shoes

To keep in-line with the upcoming Go Skateboarding Day, we thought we’d help you get ready for the day itself by listing our top 5 skate shoes!

We’ve highlighted some of their key features as well as rated them on comfort, durability, style, and skating comfort.

 

Nike SB Zoom Stefan Janoski -

The Nike SB Zoom Stefan Janoski is a classic shoe that also looks good. It’s got the Nike SB Zoom footbed which is lightweight, cushioned and ultimately, durable. The durability is also increased with the vulcanised construction. They’ve got the tacky gum rubber outsole which means they are smooth to slide and flick.

New Balance 440 -

The New Balance 440 is very padded around all sides, as well as on top of the foot, this gives it a tight and secure fit with plenty of protection. It has a reinforced toe cap for added durability as well as a foam wedge in th heel to enhance the cushioning, and protection against heel bruising! The N-Durance rubber outsole is great for added grip.

Vans Old Skool Skate Shoes -

The Vans Old Skool Skate shoe is another classic! They have the padded collar for protection and have an all-round good board feel. As with all Vans, they have the classic waffle sole. They score lower in durability and are generally better for cruising or longboarding rather than street skating.

Emerica The Reynolds Low Vulc -

Finally the Emerica The Reynolds, which is Andrew Reynolds Pro Shoe, which already says a lot about this one! You wouldn’t have The Boss skating around in anything. The Trangle thread gives this shoe good board feel and it’s lightly padded tongue and collar means ultimate comfort and protection. Again, this shoe features the vulcanized construction for more durability.
