I received an email recently asking for the comfiest skate shoes?
"Can you suggest a really comfy skate shoes?
I go through skate shoes around 3-5 months now no matter what brand.
I don't mind the technology or the brand as long as it will hold up a little, it is comfy, and it does not look weird.
I tried Nike SB Janoskis, Campus Vulcs, and G6s, but I'm looking for something that's comfier.
The comfiest ones I've tried so far were an old pair of Puma Ss. Since they don't stock them anymore, I might try the suedes.
Any other suggestion?"
Here's my reply:
I think it depends on what makes certain shoes comfy for you...
As for me, I found Lakai vulcs comfortable, but I only wear them to chill since I skate cup sole type of skate shoes.
Supra Skytop III's are also comfy. Vans Half Cabs are extremely comfy as well and so are the AV x Era 1.5's. You might want to try the Vans Geoff Rowley Pro, Vans Chukka Low's, and Vans AVE Natives. I personally like Cupsoles the best but I'll skate Vulc too every now and then depending if I like them or not.
I've heard that the Emerica Reynolds Cruisers and the Lakai Lindens are comfy too. But if you have the budget, why not go for the Nike SB dunk lows, they are simply the coolest comfy skate shoes out there.
The new Nike Dunk Low Pro SB features good board feel, impact protection (yet flexible) and durability.
