The best skate shoe for you depends on you. There are a lot of stride types, foot shapes, technologies, and no skate shoe will be perfect for everyone. That’s why we've handpicked a team of 10 skaters with a range of preferencess—lightweights, cruisers, cup-sole lovers, vulc-sole lovers and minimalists of whom pointed us to these 10 favorites. Here's the list we’ve pulled together here: ten of the best skate shoes, whatever your vantage. And yes, it’s been a hell of a year for skate shoes, with a lot of team changes, new signature releases, and so on.

With quarter 2 approaching, here are our 10 best skate shoes of 2015.


10. adidas – ZX Vulc 

Our top 10 is a technical trainer skate shoe that looks to make a big comeback in skate shoe design this year, the Adidas ZX Vulc. It fuses the brand's design motif with the functionality of a vulc skate shoe.



9. Nike SB – Blazer Low GT 

We've seen a couple of signature shoe on Nike SB, and the latest is this special-edition Blazer Low which is available in two colorways — a sick army green and a basic black and white. These badboys are clean and highly functional skate shoes hands down.



8. Vans Geoff Rowley Vulc 

Vans Geoff Rowley Vulc is in “Most Wanted” list of any skate shoes we've known so far. It's the reincarnation of the classic skate shoe that has been made for comfort and style.




7. Lakai – Owen 

Lakai’s Owen is a slip-on skate shoe that’s simple and clean. It's a performer as well that features an all-suede upper with an extra padding underneath, and offers extreme boardfeel that you’d expect from a skate shoe with the durability. 



6. Emerica Figueroa

Emerica Figueroa is the brand's latest pro model. It may not be a head turner design wise but it's a sick pair for skateboarding due to its features. Make sense to me. Being a skater, what matters most to me is the interior. If it has all the bells and whistles that I am looking for, then it is a good skate shoe.



5. DC Chris Cole Lite 3

DC Chris Cole Lite 3 is the brand's newest pro model that has technical elements from DC shoes - durability and functionality. Need I say more?




4. DC – Lynx (20-Year Anniversary Edition) 

The DC – Lynx (20-Year Anniversary Edition) is a magical skate shoe that has been redesigned to perfection. It has now a slimmed-down silhouette which is a departure from the original design with technical features like its competitors.


3. Huf – Dylan 

Huf’s Dylan skate shoe is something new. Love it or hate it, its design is a dramatic departure from the usual skate shoes in general. Why? It's a skate shoe that can be worn both at the skateparks and at parties or at a VIP lounge. Cool eh?



2. Cons x Polar Skate Co. – Chuck Taylor Pro

Cons x Polar Skate Co. – Chuck Taylor Pro is an upshot collaboration between Polar Skate Co. and Cons. They have combined creative forces to produce these three Chuck Taylor inspired skate shoes. Designed by Pontus Alv, these CTASs were simple, featuring Alv’s signature happy and sad faces on the heels, and released in limited quantities. So if you missed your chance to cop a pair, eBay might be your best bet.



1. Nike SB Dunk High De La Soul

The Nike SB Dunk High De La Soul is easily one of the most highly anticipated skate shoes this year. The SB Dunks pay tribute to the hip-hop band’s 1989 debut album 3 Feet High and Rising, as De La Soul heavily influenced skateboarding culture of the 90s.

The word in skate shoe for this season is options. From vulc to cup-soles, low-cut, high-tops, graphic beauties and killer gladiators—your skate shoe collection is about to get diversified.

  1. Do you know what speed skating is? No matter how its name sounds, this is a type of sport whose goal is to cover a certain distance going as fast as possible. I probably must add that this is awesome excercise as well.I find this website for Skate Shoes Reviews. You can visit this site.
