Save yourself the trouble of experimenting with different shoes & get yourself a nice set of insoles.

I personally ride in Janoskis religiously because they support my feet much better than Van's.

I know a select few pros ride in Jordan's since they have a lot of padding and extremely thick soles. Not sure what model would be good for BMX though, all the Jordan's I've owned didn't have very good soles for gripping pedals.

Agreed 100% with Tim, insoles are way more important than shoe. I've gone through several pairs of vans and kept the same insole.

What sort of insoles do you go for?, a specific brand?

My Etnies (fader/fader2) are great on my heels.

Jordan 1's are real good for riding but you're lucky if you can get a pair for less than 120$
