    Question What brand/style shoes are you riding with?

    Spring has sprung. Broke out my board etc etc but noticed that my current Globes are just not cutting it anymore. Almost like I can't even feel the board now.

    Looking for new suggestions, but it may be easier if you just mention what shoe you are wearing currently when you skate.

    I'm currently skating some és accels, they're cupsoles though so they don't have much board feel. If I were you I'd just go to the local shop and look for some bargain shoes. Any pair of suede vulcs should do.

    Vision Street Wear Dv8. Like the ones Don Brown is wearing in this video:

    I know old school as fuck but I remembered them being great skate shoes and found them online for $30.

    I've been really enjoying my ES Accel slims, been skating them for probably two months now and still no tears on the side and the soles are holding up fine too. Could probably use a new insoles though. Went ahead and bought another pair last week while my skateshop had a killer sale.

    With me I can't buy shoes often so I try to be conservative with my shoes

    I need a job lol

    But they're so expensive online and I don't have a skate shop within like 20 miles of me so I guess I'm screwed lol

    They might be building one near my local park which is in walking distance, so that's good haha

    I'm digging the Kiss ones. I'd love to have a pair of these just to kick around in:

    Maybe it's because I look like Rob Zombies hippie brother.

    Depends on what your into, im really loving the Converse Sumner shoes. They're reinforced canvas but they have a layer of suede underneath. I've been skating mine for about two months with now holes which is amazing. Usually shoes only last two to three weeks for me. This site is having a really good sale today on clearance shoes too if you want to check it out. http://www.activerideshop.com/sale/converse?___SID=U

    I had the same struggle growing up man! Nearest shop was 28 miles. It's an incredible shop, best skate shop I've ever been to honestly (And i've been to 46 states, i've seen a few shops). But, being 12-17 with no car and no job made getting down there and/or actually buying shoes a struggle haha. I always had to go for the sale rack, or buy sale shoes online and hope they fit okay.

    One member on here actually mailed me a pair of shoes when I posted on here about it. My shoes were shot and I couldn't get new ones for a while, and the dude asked for my address and four days later I had a box with near-new Lakai's in it! I was so pumped, such a solid thing for him to do for me.
