Way back in the early 90's, Converse shoes we’re fashion and if you didn’t have them you sucked. When it comes to skateboarding, you need a shoe that is durable and flexible. Let’s take a look at what Converse Skate Shoes have to offer and if they are really meant for skateboarding.

Converse has a wide range of shoes on the market, and they have an entire line dedicated to skateboarding, the Converse CONS. These shoes are specifically designed for skateboarding, with many features that make them a perfect choice.

While there are many shoe manufacturers who make shoes that would work well for skateboarding, Converse are one of the classic brands and have been found on the feet of skateboarders for years!

What Makes Converse Skate Shoes Good for Skateboarding?

Your favorite Converse icons remastered for skateboarding, lots of options to keep you rolling in the streets. Converse CONS, but for skateboarding. 

The Converse CONS line offers classic Converse style rebuilt with skating in mind. It is also considered as one of the most durable skate shoes like the adidas busenitz vintage or the adio skate shoes.

Across the different models and colorways you’ll find a rubber backing and rubber soles made of Converse’s proprietary CONS Traction Rubber. This material offers increased durability, grip, and flexibility, allowing skateboarders to feel the board beneath their feet.

CONS models have more cushioning inside the shoe for better shock absorption and distribution. While the old-fashioned Chuck Taylor All-Stars were slim, these newer models protect the foot better and way more comfortable whilst retaining the Converse style.

Many shoes in the CONS line offer other options ideal for skating, such as an elasticated tongue, toe-cap, and coming in mid- or high-top variants for better ankle protection.

Their latest release is the one pictured above, the Converse Cons Louie Lopez Pro Mid skate shoes

The Nike Air MAG is the shoe most of you guys will think of if I say "Back to the Future shoes," but don't forget about the Nike Bruin that Michael J. Fox wore as Marty McFly in the first film in the Back to the Future trilogy.

Originally introduced back in 1972 and seen on the feet of McFly in the original Back to the Future, NikeLab re-released the Bruin 'Marty McFly’ way back in October 21, 2015 (the date Marty McFly and Doc traveled to in Back To The Future II — marks “Back To The Future Day”). Are we to expect another release this year? We'll just have to wait and see in the coming days. But if you really want to get your hands on these highly coveted skate shoes, you need to shell out thousands of dollars on eBay.

Vaporwave Skateboarding is chill wave for the mind, disco funk for the soul, and 8bit psychedelia explorations for the digits. Journey to infinity and try to skate as long as possible through and increasingly difficult worlds.

Vaporwave skateboarding is an art movement which emerged among the internet this fluidity there are common themes of counterculture, uncanny presentation of the past and future, and a particular nostalgia towards somewhere in time around the last fifth of the 20th century.

Sonically, vaporwave is commonly constructed around manipulation of samples, sometimes minimalist and other times entwined in original instrumentation, in a plunderphonic manner. Typical sample sources can include television broadcasts (specifically "weather channel music" or commercials from around the world), formally-released music from the '80s and '90s (pop, lounge, jazz and "elevator music" being typically associated with the genre), and even video game soundtracks. Visual styles usually follow suit of the samples themselves, combining a retro-revitalization idea with current-day netart. This combination of modern, retro-inspired and "true retro" concepts allows for a wide variety of interpretations musically and thematically. Uniquely, the genre is more of a philosophic approach to music than a rigid set of principles.
