Skateboarding shoes, more than just a style accessory
Above all the choice of a shoe is an aesthetic choice, but not when we talk about sport! You don't choose a pair of sandals for a mountain bike ride! Well, for skateboarding it's the same, you don't choose just any pair of shoes! The material of the sole or the length and the design of the upper of the skateboard shoe is to be taken into account!
Skateboarding shoes have a more grippy, wider and flatter sole than your everyday trainers! This allows you to keep a fixed position on your skateboard.
Low profile skateboard shoes
With better cushioning and a low ankle-high upper, low top skateboard shoes give you total flexibility to attempt an ollie or kickflip. Vans, founded in 1966, quickly became the market leader! Offering urban shoes totally adapted to the practice of skateboarding, Vans skateboard shoes have become a reference for style as well as for performance!
High top skateboard shoes
With a high upper, the skateboard shoes protect you from shocks and differences in terrain without limiting your movements! Ideal for trying new tricks without fear of hurting your ankle or for skateboarding sessions in the winter! They will keep you warm and limit the sliding effect! So if you are more into high shoes, discover Globe skate shoes. The Australian brand Globe, created in 1994 by three brothers passionate about skateboarding, advocates the freedom and open-mindedness of skatelife.
