Are vans good skateboarding shoes?

Vans shoes are great for skateboarding and have special insoles that provide support, flexibility, cushioning. They also come with heels or arcs to protect your feet when you fall off the board so they last long.

Vans is a great company for anyone who loves to skateboard, but make sure you get the pro model. Their suede shoes offer support and comfort as well as special insoles that provide extra traction when boarding or walking on shaky surfaces like sidewalks. 

Suede also has an excellent grip so it’s perfect if your board doesn’t have much grip itself. Regular vans work best with cruisers or longboards because they don’t absorb impacts nearly as much- this may be why some people prefer those types of footwear anyway though.

Vans have a long history of being used while skating. They are designed to be comfortable and provide the best performance for your feet, which is why they make such an excellent choice.

Here are 3 ways Vans can help you win more skate competitions: 

1- Skate shoes material: 

For those looking for a shoe that can take them through the roughest of terrain, canvas is an excellent choice. More durable than suede and cheaper than leather, these shoes will not let you down when needed most. 

With some models available with stylish uppers made from genuine leather as well though there’s no doubt about it; Vans are always their best bet if durability and price aren’t important factors in what matters most- how your feet feel while skating around town all day long.

2- Cushioning: 

When it comes to choosing the right skateboarding shoes, there are many different styles and options. One of these choices is how much cushioning they have in their insoles; with regular sneakers this can mean anything from no padding at all for those who want a light-weight shoe or even extra thick ones like an orthopedic. 

For skaters though, we recommend looking more closely into practicality since that will help you perform better on your board when using them outside of just cruising around town.. What about heel collars? Tongue pads?? High top vs low cut??? It’s important to try out every possible combination so finding what works best feels comfortable not only today but also tomorrow too.

3- Gripping: 

Vans is a brand that knows how to keep their customers happy. If you’re looking for the perfect skateboard, take your favorite board with you and ask if they have anything more than waffle grip soles on them. 

This way, we’ll know which ones are right-for any occasion or surf spot in mind as well as what kind of terrain I’m going up against when surfing.

Conclusion:

If you want to do parkour, pavement skating, flat-ground skating, or anything besides street skating, then vans are great. But if you want to do street skateboarding and need pretty durable kicks that can take a beating without too much compromise in comfort across the sole of the shoe, then Vans ain’t so good. 

The one thing I have noticed about most people who claim “Vans are the best” is that they already have a pair of Sk8-Hi’s at home waiting for them because they know vans aren’t worth it in my opinion. But I am not gonna lie, Vans make some dope slip-ons.

Hi everyone, I am Ashley, live in Sheffield, England. I'm a Boardsports enthusiast and I've been skateboarding streets since my childhood. As to this site, the goal is to help beginner riders find their perfect equipment so they can have an enjoyable experience on whatever type of board best suits them- whether it be downhill riding or long boarding! Everything written here should be taken as opinion only because everyone's preferences are different, but at least now there will always seem less confusion when looking for gear online.
