I ride with vans half cabs, but they tear up pretty easy. What are some better shoes to ride with?

anything DC, because advertisements and MTV tell me that DC makes the best shoes for everything

i ride with some random DVS skateshoes when i ride.

Vans 106 Vulcanized, Nike Mavrk 2 Lo, or Etnies Jameson 2 Eco

nike last the longest from my experience

i got nikes like a 2 weeks ago and i foot brake and they seem to last plus my friend had nikes and they lasted for about 5 months

I was also thinking about asking this thread yesterday. Lol. my last pair were DVS's and they lasted 3 years. That was riding bmx to dirtbikes to working to just about everything. But there was literally like nothing left of them when I decided to buy the ones I have now. Now I have Globes and they're already destroyed and it's only been probably 5 months. Pretty ridiculous, but when I was serious into skating, I used to get a new pair every 3-4 months so I can't really complain. Wish they still made the same DVS's I had tho!

6.0s last quite awhile for me and I do everything in them. My next pair of shoes will be the vans Levi secants.

8/6/2012 10:24 PM

I can't remember what mine are called. They're Nike 6.0 Dunk something.. Like "HL" or "HR" I think. Awesome shoes though.

vans ive had halfcabs for the longest time. and now i have some secants. and they are awesome feeling and grip.
also look at nike morgan mid 2's. you can probably find a pair in the clearance section of zumiez if you have one near you.

Vans for sure. Went from 6.0s to Waffle soles and they are pure sex on pedals and last soo long. As far as them not lasting other people long.... I ride everywhere brakeless and all my shoes havent worn down . Get bike control and learn how to stop without sticking your foot in your tire or dragging your feet on the ground and youll notice your shoes will still grip and your tires will last.

"Brake" shoe from etnies is really nice. I currently have them but remember there's no such thing as the "best" shoe. It's just personal preference.


8/7/2012 3:36 AM

Etnies Number Mids are pretty damn good!! long lasting, good price and comfortable as hell!

I wouldn't recommend the 106's theyre so grippy and flexy but i always smack the bone on the inside of my ankle and earlier today i hit my Achilles tendon and it hurt so bad and they rip very easily.


8/7/2012 2:17 PM

a lot of the etnies, because there soles are great, my last pair of etnies lasted 1 and a half years running brakeless as well. at the moment i ride in nike 6.0.. maverick 2's i think, there great and have so much padding around the ankle which helps


8/7/2012 8:44 PM

I liked my 6.0's the Mavs are still kicking while running brakeless. I picked up a pair of these LXVI's and am in love with them, light comfortable, and the grip is amazing. Photo

I prefer gum soles more than anything, the compound seems to last longer. Vans, Loteks, Nikes, and IPaths have worked well for me
