Besides Vans and Nike , any reviews for other shoes? I'm leaning towards buying a pair of Janoski's but I want to try other brands like Lotek , Almond , etc . They'd be harder to get here in Canada with few local skate shops so I might order them. I also thought of buying all black Jordan 1's too . I know they're not for riding as much but figured they would also work. Tried them on and they seem comfy and well built , enough to handle biking. Keeping it OG to the skateboarding roots as well. I'm asking about shoes , not me not biking .

I don't know about riding in Jordans. They are really expensive shoes and as you said, they aren't made for BMX.

I would just stick to Vans or Janoski's or even some nice Etnies.

My Loteks are in a 7/10 condition with an 8/10 sole after about 1 year and 8 months of riding. Craig Passero Fader V1s if that gives you any relevance to age. These things are absolutely indestructible, I've never had any other Loteks though just because I have yet to wear these out. They're so tough 3/4 of my riding crew now rides this exact shoe and no one has yet to wear them out

My Jordan's fell apart within a week of riding.

I have been wearing Nike hyperfuse and they have been awesome to ride in, stiff sole and they take a long time to wear down even when I'm riding brakeless, so far I have worn this pair over 800 miles in the past 9 months and they are just now wearing the sole down but they still feel great

I love Janoskis and I was thinking about switching to Chukka Lows or at least trying them out. I have a pair of Mandarin Florals which I sadly can't ride in xc

I had a pair of non vulc Lotek Enns last a year, which is phenominal for me i go through shoes very quickly. I had some vulc Enns last 9 months. Then I got Nightwolfs, which lasted like 3. Lotek ain't what they used to be.

I might get the new bruins or some dunks or get some more janoski's idk I like nike sb the best they have never done me dirty so idk. But I might get some adidas too or some half cabs. I need new shoes bad. :/

I'll probably cop the cheapest pair of Janoski's I can get and see how they are. I'm not giving Vans another go after my experience with my Half Cab Pro's , I'll try other shoes first and see if they're better. All I need is a Bell Helmet and I'll really be CK :/

Osiris Shurikens were the absolute best shoes ive ever rode. Lasted forever with hardly any wear but after like a year and a half the sole ripped. Ballistic suede halfcabs were great but the gum sole got.ruined rather fast from metal pedals. My Lotek Shreddie Eddies were crap and fell apart after like a month. My nikes with the same sole as Janoskis held up great and are still in like 7/10 condition after about 5months of riding.

I say janoskis are probably the best riding shoes. Mainstream ones atleast. I usually don't get shoes online because i have to wear them first.

I'm currently riding in Janoskis and I love them! Thick sole, max-air pad on the heel to reduce bruising, VERY strong stitching. I ride brakeless and have had the same pair for a year now and I'm one of those people who put their foot in their tire if that tells you anything. I just ordered both a pair of Lakai Carroll 5's and a pair of Vans Chukka Lows

if you get janoskis get canvas besides that i love mine

Going today with a friend to buy a pair , 90% sure it will be Janoski's . I wanted to ride in Jordan 1's but fuck the price I'll get a hookup from a friend and rock them as casuals. I don't want to be a CK wannabe with Nike shoes but I have the bike already so whatever. Hopefully they have a black/black pair .

I had the chance to buy Janoski Mid's in dark blue all over and the outer sole was white with multiple coloured paint flicks . They felt better than the Addidas but I wanted a low top and all black . The Mid's were on sale for like 60 or 70$ but I paid more for the Addidas . Rather have something I like and lowkey then something I wasn't stoked on.

Been riding vans for about 15 years on and off , it's time to change it up though I'm finding vans don't have as much heel cushioning as I would like

I thought about Vans but as mentioned wasn't too impressed to get my money.

Hopefully these hold up well , Addidas has been stepping up their shoe game ( that pun ) so I have faith these will be decent.

My almond belmonts were the fuvkin bomb, lasted over a year, and thats just coz the grip wore through (i live in a valley, many many hills to braks on). In comparison, my etnies number mids lasted like 2-3 months. Went through some random skate shoe in like 3 weeks earlier this year, i go through shoes FAST.
