What shoes do you use for BMX?

I never owned a pair of vans, but I hear they are good since the waffle pattern grips the pins of the pedals well, and that Ultracush helps with landings. Also hear that they are a very flexible shoe.

The only shoe I have worn for bmx was something like this. https://www.jcpenney.com/p/nike-fs-lite-run-2-mens-running-shoes/ppr5007135799?pTmplType=regular&country=US&currency=USD&selectedSKUId=06310910026&selectedLotId=0631091&fromBag=true&quantity=1&utm_medium=cse&utm_source=google-sc&utm_campaign=running%20shoes&utm_content=06310910026&cid=cse%7Cgoogle-sc%7C007%20-%20footwear%20and%20handbags%7Crunning%20shoes_06310910026&adpos=1o1&scid=scplp06310910026&sc_intid=06310910026&gclid=Cj0KCQjw4eXPBRCtARIsADvOjY1lIXnJu8RbmR40etPGbjlAx4Jx4xHv4U7cekKLWefXogqWpy1mVUcaAu5rEALw_wcB&kwid=productads-adid^225296867890-device^c-plaid^371705938743-sku^06310910026-adType^PLA

and the pattern was flat hexagonal that was already worn out when I started. I have had many pedal slips with these, and I wanted to know how big of a difference shoes can really make.

I was thinking of getting the vans ultrarange pro, what do you think? https://www.vans.com/shop/ultrarange-pro-black-white

Etnies marana x michelin. Just got a pair and they're definitely the best modern shoes I've had

Is it just me or does Vans makes garbage quality shoes?
They never last more than an year when you use them for walking...

My last pair of vans lasted me 2 weeks. Now I just use the vans insole in my etnies jameson and I find that comfy and they last about 4-5 months

Hmmm

Jordan 1... they are the worst pair of shoes if it is ever wet out.

I'm wearing Vans Old Skool Pros now. Had them about a year and they're still going strong and I wear them near daily, except at work. I've been a bit light on them though. Just can't find wide sizes with them.

Vans make the best stuff and the grip is insane

I've never had any issues with Van's but I have only ever worn the "Old Skool" stuff (have since before when they were "new school").

Currently, I wear Vans or Chuck Taylors.

Yes Vans are awesome! I ride with the Old Skool 112 Pros and they're so comfy and the grip is amazing!

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

Vans Eras mostly. I really dont care about durability of shoes that much.... when I was skating everyday for around 4-6 hours per day (or just an hour or two in the driveway on some days), I went through a shoe a month or so (probably 3 at most with patching up, but once the sole was through there was no making excuses). But with riding Ive been wearjng the same pair for almost a year. Theyre just normal Chukka lows that I ripped the sole out and replaced with my roommates new balance insoles.

However Im never riding in Supras ever again. First time 5 minutes into riding and I got the infamous metal pedal to the shin.

DC spartan high tops... Last forever and tons of cushioning...

I finally gave in and got vans last year, had to glue them the other day to make em last.

I loved my Jordans before I wore down the sole.
They gripped like a champ and never slipped even when wet. Other than that I've only ever worn Nike SB which SUCK when wet.

Right now I have two sets of shoes just for riding, Vans Sk8 Hi and Half cabs

Sk8-his I like for the ankle support, Also have a pair of my favs, the cheaper nonpro half cabs instead of the pros since they have more thicker padding around the ankle area. I hate smacking my ankles on the frame and crank arms. Only thing that sucks is, the nonpro halfcabs have the glued insoles, so removing them sucks to put in better insoles.

Shoes that I have been eyeing in the store to try are the 112 mid pros.


For non bmx stuff, when it comes to shoes I mainly wear Vans slip-ons. I even have an all black pair that passes pretty good as dress shoes.

the thing about vans is the damn 'made in china' thing. Years ago I had a Half Cab that was made in the USA, and they lasted an eternity, even riding and walking almost every day with them, one of the best shoes I EVER had! Fast forward 20 years and I buy some Vans old skool, now made in china. These fell apart fast, and I didn't wear them every time I went riding, and I didn't wear them to work or whatever every day too.
So, sorry vans it'll be a while till we meet again,

I've had three pairs of Osiris, one lasted quite well, the other two did not.

Amazingly enough, I bought some re-issues of vision street wear MC14000, and these are holding up just fine! One of those had a manufacturing problem, but the other two are GREAT!

unfortunately they're almost gone, and there's no sign of of a restock.

Emerica and Vans shoes are good..... for a little while. They are comfy and look cool, but you will get the effect of the tops of the shoe look new - but the soles look like they been thru a blender after two months, ( that is......if you ride everyday and you are actually doing tricks )and then your feet will start sliding on the pins

I don't know if running plastic pedals is easier on shoes, but for several years now - I just buy the $20 Maui & Sons skate shoes at Big5Sports , and throw them away after 2-3 months and get fresh ones out. I notice a lot of amateur "pros" do the same, buy cheap, throw aways.

If you get vans make sure it is one of the “pro” model vans with more cushioning and durability. Even to walk in the pro model blows the base model away

Vans base model. I beat the hell out of em, sweat through them, and do their job. I see no reason to spend more on shoes I only use for riding.

I literally just typed up the longest thing ever about all my shoes I have ridden, and it all got deleted. Anyways, the bottom lin was that vans are the best

Man, Im wearing a pair of UGPs from 2004. All these new shoes look like Keds to me. They all have the same soles and no toe box. I got big hillbilly toes man. Even saw at the sporting goods store, the same Keds ass looking shoes with Dickies and Carhart logos slapped on them.

Personally, all new shoes rock, and all worn in shoes suck. Vans always busted the outsole stitches on me.. I did just buy a pair though, Baxters circa 2011 (no Keds soles)

Brahma steel toed work shoes with some insoles.

20.00 at wally world the soles last a long time and you cant get your toes pinched if you do a lot of foot jams.

They dont look crazy awesome but they are decently comfy and the soles grip pedals well.

I find it strange that someone would spend mucho dollars on a high tech shoe and not even tighten the laces for maximum support when crashing...

I see skaters skating with laces untied and thier feet just floating around in the sea that is their shoes.
