Critical Details for Ideal Performance
What makes skateboarding shoes different from casual trainers? Shoes designed for skateboarders give skaters more control over their boards. Thick soles make it more challenging to perform the tricks you've mastered. You should be able to feel your board beneath a good pair of skate sneakers. In addition to maximum board feel, the soles need to withstand impact.
Skater shoe soles are designed to have a flat, low profile. Generally, skaters prefer durable rubber soles with a pattern that encourages grip. For instance, waffle patterns have a reputation for providing maximum grip to the board.
Options for soles include vulcanized, or vulc, and cupsole designs. Vulcanized soles are achieved in manufacturing when the outsole is heated to attach to the shoe's upper. Vulcanized shoes are flexible and offer more boardfeel. Cupsole shoes, on the other hand, have a single rubber outsole and offer durability, support and shock absorption for hard landings.
Skateboarders understand the importance of a durable shoe that won't break down quickly. Features that skaters should look for include heel protection, such as EVA foam barriers or airbag heels and protective toe caps — a rubber strip that protects areas more prone to wear and tear. Sometimes shoes will feature toe caps externally and others will have the toe caps beneath the uppers.
Skate Shoes in the Styles You Love
Choose the style that suits your personality and the construction that fits your board style. Common skater styles include slip-on, lowtop, mid top and hi top skate shoes. Low top shoes are for skaters prioritizing mobility and flexibility above any other feature.Midtop, on the other hand, offers moderate ankle support while retaining some flexibility and freedom. A high top skate shoe has a high collar that provides substantial ankle support. Tricksters who practice high-impact stunts are more likely to need hightops.
In addition to performance, we understand that our customers want shoes that look good too. Our skateboarding shoes come in various styles, colors and material options. From the classic, lightweight canvas options to the durable, abrasion-resistant leather options and everything in between. Textile options tend to have more design elements while protecting the areas that may see the most damage.
