    Default Shoeeees

    Alright, i need some new shoes, and i need opinions by someone that have used these.

    VANS BRASCO

    - What I've experienced with Vans shoes, is that, a pair of mine were nice to skate in, but it was just the outter material that protected. so it ripped in no time. While my other Vans shoe had some kind of extra inner plastic protection. Does this one have that?

    Vans TNT 4


    Circa 8Track
    - I have a feeling circa gave up the skateable shoes.
    I like the looks, but it looks weak as hell.
    I have been wrong before though.
    -----
    The reason i choose these are because they're cheap here.
    (Skate shoes are **** expensive in norway)

    You can browse here for other shoes though, it's in english.

    (Keep it UNDER 600 NOK, if you're gonna suggest something)

    I suggest you buy whatever you think looks cool/comfortable. Then you head to your nearest Intersport or whatever and buy Aquasure (http://www.sportsnett.no/wsp/sportsn...&func_id=REL30) or Stormsure.

    Put a layer on the places that gets wear after your first session and your shoes will last all year.

    Are skate shoes really necessary? I mean I will buy them if I have to I guess. I agree though, just get whats comfortable.

    they aren't necessary but if you use other shoes like tennis shoes they really screw up your skating.

    I've heard good things about tnts so go with those. Stay away from circa for skating, they don't last.

    I'm almost positive the vans brascos don't have that inner layer. Circa 8 tracks are supposedly really good, I recommend that you get them. And yes, you really do need skate shoes if you skate. You do not see any pro or am skaters using non-skateboarding shoes, do you? And, Shoe-Goo will make any shoe last A LOT longer, so I suggest you buy some. I have some and it works amazing.

    You shouldn't really go with any skate shoe you can buy at Kohl's, not really legit in my opinion.

    Out of all of those i would choose the last, Vans are never the best choice. You need more options.
