I usually wear skate shoes, but lately I've considered wearing Jordans or something when riding. So, do shoes really matter or help in any way? Or will Jordans work fine?

I wear toe shoes or some times a good pair of metal cleats. If I don't have that just thigh high socks.

Skate shoes/bmx shoes are designed for skating/riding. So they have good arch support, padding in the right places, firm and durable soles etc. They're more comfortable to ride in, and more durable than most other shoes on the market.

Plus I wouldn't want to support Nike because they're a massive multi billion dollar company that have never put money back into riding or skating.
Buy vans or etnies. Or scg if you can

Mike vallely's etnies were the best bmx shoe on the planet hands down! I only rode with those shoes and paired them with the old DK Ironcross pedals and that my friends was the greatest combo I've ever had! RIP to both
