10 Pro Skate Shoes to Look Forward to This 2013

No. 10 - Globe Mahalo Globe Mahalo sports a classic look that we have all seen before but with a couple of aesthetic adjustments, and has been made to last - it won't rip up as quickly as you are thinking it will. Be sure that you have the suede/canvas version and not the all canvas one. The canvas/suede version is made to handle intense sessions and the vulcanized S-Trac outsole keeps the shoe's rip while withstanding aggressive pushes. $65

No. 9 - Axion Mijo Released last year, this Manny Santiago's first skate pro shoe is the highlight of Axion's Spring 2013 line. It's influenced by a Michael Jordan model, and is made to accommodate Santiago's love of tech and skateboarding. It features a one piece toe and comes with padded tongue to go along with the shoe's EVA insole that contains a gel heel cushion. $65.

No. 8 - adidas Silas Pro II

The Silas Pro II received an update and it looks better and more durable this time. Its one-piece toe cap looks good and it skates better than those skate shoes with stitched paneling. It has a GEOFIT collar that provides stability, and an adiPRENE heel cushioning which gives you the protection from heel bruises. You will like the vulc sole, the recessed eyelets, thouugh you might find it odd to see the tongue attached only to one side.

No. 7 - Etnies Gilman Cairo Foster Pro Model

This Gilman, Cairo Foster's latest shoe from Etnies, is made to be tough - it won't break on you and at the same time not impede your performance. Design wise, it's ok. It comes with suede on the outside of the toe cap, and a breathable canvas on top of it. There's a thin padded tongue and collar which gives it a comfy fit and its cupsole features the brand's classic stitched construction to further support its DTTF Pro 2 insole which emphasizes boardfeel.

No. 6 - Supra Greco Hammer

This Jim Greco's signature model from Supra is a rugged, yet still lookin' clean. This "Hammer" shoe makes use of a vulcanized and cup sole for a much better skateboard feel. "I really wanted that fusion of vulcanized and cup sole because I like the feel of the vulc, but I like the impact absorbing features of the cup sole." - Jim Greco

No. 5 - HUF Joey Pepper Pro

HUF Joey Pepper Pro is a "simple yet effective" skate shoe that loooks like a nice tennis shoe made by a department store yachting brand - which is something that you would not readily associate with skateboarding. It's durable and features a vulc sole with a triple wrapped toecap. Other features inclue a padded cuff for your ankle, and a nice woven nylon ribbon on the side panel along with Joey Pepper's deer logos on the tongue and insole. $75.

No. 4 - Vans Geoff Rowley Pro

Vans Geoff Rowley Pro is the performance-based low top shoe released way back in 1999. It was made to survive the hardest, rawest days of skating. Up until now, this shoe is very popular. As good as it was made back then, this new Rowley Pro is remarkably better. It has a redesigned sockliner that molds to your feet and a PRO VULC construction - Vans preferred manufacturing method. The brand makes use of molded polyurethane footbeds with ImpactSorb gel heel pads, so that you will get that extra cushioning in the heel without minimizing skateboard feel. Not toe mention that it has the Vans' patented original Waffle outsole. $65.

No. 3 - DC Mike Mo S

DC Mike Mo S shoe is designed to last. It features the brand's latest unilite technology from their running shoes making this shoe a lightweight one. It has a bootie for a better fit and mesh on the tongue for breathability. You will find stitches or paneling in the toe box and an "X" on the bottom of the sole which is the brand's way of making it more flexible. $85.

No. 2 - Emerica Reynolds 4

At number 2 is Emerica Reynolds 4, a stunningly clean skate shoe that showcases Emerica's dedication to producing better footwear. It comes with a solid upper panel that covers the toe and ollie area and a collar has 3M's reflective material for visibility. Other features include Emerica's Medial Mesh "Cold Air Intake" system, G6 foam between the upper and the cupsole which is made of the lightweight stabilizing foam that's attached to the outsole, and an outsole that is said to be Emerica's grippiest and longest-lasting sole yet.

No. 1 - Nike Koston 2

The number 1 spot goes to Nike Koston 2. It's Eric Koston's second skate shoe on Nike which has a dressier look than original or even most shoes on the market right now. However, it's made to get down and dirty. It may look like a Golf shoe minus the spikes, but this Koston would never allow to put his name on a shoe that would ruin this reputation - or something that he couldn't skate in. Its eyelets were made to very narrow so the laces won't rip and has a bootie with a heel counter that wraps around your foot. It also comes with a cupsole with an improved Lunarlon sockliner.
