2008 Skate Shoes

In the skateboarding world you gotta have some tight shoes. We picked a few skate shoes that will earn you some style points!

P.Rod 2

P.Rod 2 Skate Shoes The signature shoes for skateboarding sensation, Paul Rodriguez, have a funky feel to them. The unique color combination of black with the aqua blue and yellow laces, has a little bit of a futuristic look. The swoosh is also multi-colored with a collage of red, purple, blue, greens and yellow. This is definitely a sick shoe and will make you stick out at the skate parks. If this rainbow of a shoe doesn't float your boat there are five other colors to this model. Oh and did we mention the P.Rod 2's are also a high performing shoe as well? Retail - $85 US.

DC Shoes Gatsby

DC Shoes Gatsby DC Shoes Gatsby has a refined look to it. This is a great shoe if you want to go with the whole mature look (that might score you some points with the ladies). The brown curtain-like pattern with the white midsole gives this shoe a fresh look. But looks aside, the Gatsby is also lightweight and comfortable. The sole is made of a highly abrasion-resistant sticky rubber, so you will have great traction on the board. Retail - $60 US.


Vans Classic Slip-on

Vans Classic Slip-on Nothing beats a classic! The Vans Classic Slip-on is the perfect kick for you laid back dudes. The checkered pattern will never go out of style as far as we're concerned. It's cheap, fashionable and perfect for casual riding! The only down side is the shoe doesn't perform as well as the newer shoes and lacks good support. Retail - $45 US.


Circa AL50 Adrian Lopez Skate Shoes

Circa AL50 Adrian Lopez Skate Shoes While designing this shoe, pro boarder, Adrian Lopez wanted a throwback to the original skate shoes. It has a classic upper style and vulcanized construction. The AL50 gives you traction on the board better than most other skate shoes. This brown leather model has that 1950s look and feel to it. This shoe also comes in three other colors. Retail - $57 US.
