Hi all, I was wondering which shoe i should get for riding. I am currently deciding between Nike Janoski's / any other Nike skate shoes or Vans half cab / any other vans. I run brakeless but I use kind of a walking/stomping motion to stop. Im unsure which will last longer, any advice/inputs will be appreciated.

I rode with Vans and they didn't last long but the grip was awesome and im unsure if Nikes grip well and if they last long.

My Vans have lasted me quite some time and I'm also brakeless! I would recommend the Vans or some Etnies. I have never ridden in Etnies but I hear they're good. I'm gonna buy my Etnies in a few weeks I just need to get some money first! Haha

Etnies brakes are amazing the middle of the shoe is soft but the toe and heal are hard for brakeless rideing

Thanks! I'll check out Etnies and Vans to see which feels most comfortable since they are both equally liked.

And I'm pretty sure those are brake pads not shoes Xxohioanxx.

Yeah! I just got a pair of Etnies today and rode alittle with it. The sole of the shoe is 'harder' than my pair of Vans and I've not gotten used to it yet. I got the jameson 2, so far I'm really happy with it. :D

honestly ive been riding loteks for awhile now. they all have the same sole so id assume they all hold up equally. plus the new line looks fucking dope. they last forever too and feel amazing and youd be supporting a bmx brand
