Are there really any shoes better for BMX than vans? Seems like the sole of vans is perfect for pedals.

Etnies are without doubt the best riding shoes on the market...


However.....


I have a set of Almond Belmont Premiums they are some of the most comfy shoes i have ever owned. They look badass, I mean really, really nice. I haven't really ridden in them though so i can't say how they ride but for fit, comfort & looks Almonds are the way to go!

While we're talking about shoes where the fuck can I find Orchid or Loteks?? I'm bored of vans too many swagfags wear them.

Etnies Number Mid were the best I've ever used. Not a fan of Vans. Wanting to try the Lotek Reeves when they come out though.

I have a pair of etnies low numbers that work pretty well.I also have a pair of old oakley switchbacks that are my long time faves.Alot of it depends on what pedals the shoes are working with.

Vans Sk8-hi and old skool for life

I like Nike Stefan Janoskis

In my opinion, Vans are the best. I am flat-footed, which means I don't have an arch in my foot which causes knee, hip, and back problems, so it's hard for me to find shoes that are comfortable shoes and good riding shoes. I haven't had any problems with Vans though. They are great riding shoes and they are good for a flat-footed rider, like myself.

Same with me, I am flat footed, and vans don't cause any problems really.

vans are good i find the bottoms run out way to easy if you use your feet as brakes i've barely had my chukkas for a month now and the bottom of one shoe is already missing some of it sole near the toes and has a hole in it . i find there waffle soles just love pedals like cookie monster loves cookies but i think i'm gonna give some other pairs like Etnies, fallen etc a try for my next pair of riding shoes

My Loteks are fucking awesome. I'm a vans fanboy, I own 6 pairs that are still wearable and 4 destroyed pairs just piled in my closet. But I have converted to lotek mikes for riding shoes

I have the LXVI Secants but I only use them for walking and stuff. I ride metals and the bottom got destroyed in a day or two of riding plastics.

Loteks here: http://www.danscomp.com/manufacturers/LOTEK.html

I was under the impression that Orchid went under/out of business.

@Chrisaustin Those vans grips are Cult Vans

I think I'm sticking to Janoskis pretty much forever. They're a bit pricey but I get them at the end of the years after I've trashed my current pair. I really try not to cause some are limited edition but once I get them dirty or messed up, I'm just like, fuck it. I have a current white/black/mint pair that I wear daily which I kinda regret, but then I have a black/white tucked away for special events though I did get them a bit dirty. They last forever literally.

love my vans but gonna get some etnies brakes next

6/19/2013 7:42 PM

I had etnies and a few other waffle bottoms, but i really prefer nike mavrks, just the right amount of grip, comfort and longevity. These last ages, like legit. and they dont hurt feet, and they are super solid, no tears at all! Sticking to these things forever!
