If you've ever used Vans can you tell me what shoe had the most durable grip? Thanks.

I have been running Vans Atwoods since...April? I don't have brakes and they are approaching garbage, they have holes in the toe areas of both soles. When they were new, they gripped my pedals nice. Sole was stiff, but not too stiff.

Nikes have the most durable grip for me. But they dont grip as good as waffle bottomed shoes.

I have Lakais and the sole is pretty much gone, and I know you probably will think it's stupid but I refuse to support Nike.
Can you recommend any other shoes?

Half cabs are the the best shoes from vans that I've had, mines last me usually around 8 months but thats because i ride them until they literally fall apart and have no sole left

Yes I was thinking about getting Half Cabs or Chukka lows.

I got the Vans x Shadow Sk8 mids in june. I DO run brakes, but the waffle bottom shredded apart in the first month with my metal pedals. Last night the sole on the left shoe (not even my footjam foot or foot I slam down in emergencies) finally gave.

You can see the shitty condition of the sole, and it really blows my mind how the left one died first, when I never put that one through anything. I guess a part of it all is its a gum sole whuch is grippier, but a lot softer and wears faster and in my case gets shredded by metal pedals. I would avoid any gum sole shoes if you're brakeless or have metal pins/pedals.Photo

I have Cab Lites , the updated Half-Cabs. Although I RARELY ride in them , they grip like carpenter glue to pubes , and the mid top gives good ankle protection without the excessive padding as normal Half Cabs.

I'd recommend them

Durable and Vans should never be used in the same sentence... Although I still love Vans

I ride Old Skools and there great really sticky to the pedals but durability wise I'm not sure I haven't had them long not to mention Vans Old Skools look a lot better then all the others
