Title: Choosing a Great Pair of Shoes for Skateboarding

Choosing a Great Pair of Shoes for Skateboarding
  • If you like to skate or simply like the look of
    skate shoes, there are actually some tips that
    can help you find a great pair of shoes that will
    wear well and look great for a long time. Take
    these tips with you and find a quality pair of
    shoes today!

Shoe Material
  • It goes without saying that the material the
    shoes are made from will play a big part in
    determining your level of satisfaction and how
    well they wear with time and use. If you skate
    often, you're going to need a pair of shoes that
    can keep up, whereas someone who doesn't skate as
    often can get away with a more light-weight shoe.

  • While hemp and canvas shoes are light and
    breathable, they won't last if you're hitting the
    park every day. If the park is your thing, you
    will want to look for more durable suede or
    leather shoes.

Stitching Matters
  • If you skate often, you've probably had a pair
    of shoes rip apart at the seams. This is why
    stitching is so important. For a really durable
    skate shoe, look for a pair with at least double,
    if not triple, stitching. That's your

Shoe Profile
  • Whether you like a high, mid or low top shoe is
    totally a matter of personal preference. While
    some people like the feeling of more support
    while skating, others feel restricted by high
    tops. For some, the freedom of a low top is
    exactly what they need, while others like the
    middle of the road where shoes with a mid-profile
    offer a little support without feeling too clunky.

Sole Construction
  • This is a vital part of any shoe, but the sole
    is particularly important for skating. The two
    most popular types are cupsole, where the sole
    provides a little more support by cupping around
    your foot, or the vulcanized sole, which are very
    flexible and feel pretty great on your feet.

  • While some prefer a vulc sole for everyday
    skating, others who are doing big tricks often
    may like the added support of the cupsole. It's
    totally a matter of personal preference.

  • If you're currently shopping for shoes, check
    out the selection at The Village BMX. This shop
    carries a wide range of gear and apparel for BMX
    bikers and skaters, including quality shoes. Need
