Category information Skate shoes and sneakers
Sneakers, skate shoes and youth culture – it's not possible to imagine one without the other. Kids, boys, girls or adults, for all them, sneakers became socially accepted by symbolizing sportiness, drive and youthfulness. That is why it is an absolute matter of the heart for us to provide you with the newest styles and models of the prestigious players in the shoe business. The Nike SB Zoom Janoski is an absolute all-time favorite in street culture and classics like the Vans Old Skool don't run out of style either. Not just for girls shoes are an absolute lifestyle indicator, you decide which shoe pleases you the most. Every type has its own face.
„Low-cut“ describes a shoe type which is basically flat cut and unobtrusive and decent. The shoe ends underneath the ankle as shown by the absolute role-models Vans Authentic, DC Trase and the etnies Scout.
“Mid-cut” models will get your ankle full support by the shoe. The Nike SB Janoski Max or the DVS Torey 3 are classic examples for this type of skate-sneaker.
Hi-cut sneakers end above the ankle and guarantee a maximum of protection and stabilization. No matter if it's a classic like the Vans Skate-Hi MTE or a new one like the DC Crisis High WNT, these high-ending sneakers are a dream come true for wild birds. Supra has been delivering exotic models to sneaker fans for years now.
There are also differences in the manufacturing of the soles. Cup-soles are a type of sole which is glued to the upper which builds a small cup at the tip of the shoe. Not like the melted version of the vulc-sole these are additionally sewed onto.
The upper material covers a wide range from smooth leather, suede, nubuck leather and patent leather to synthetic materials and mixed forms and complete vegan fabrications. The variety of the sneaker-world continues in different lacing systems. Hook and loops fasteners, slip-ons which have no lacing, classic lace-systems or a combination of these forms. Maybe the filter option in our shop can provide some help.
There is a lot of technology involved at skate shoes which is supposed to perfectly support you skating and make your shoe resistible, stable and light at the same time. Additionally, you will be supplied with features like perforation, mesh lining, strengthened heel area, double sewed ollie areas and so on. Removable footbeds secure gentle damping. The EVA-, Ortholite-, Lunarlon- or the Polyurethan footbeds are part of the outcome of this research. Who if not the pros know better what a real skate shoe needs? That's why labels cooperate with their team riders to bring their creativity and experience to manifest in their signature models. The Nike SB Stefan Janoski and Eric Koston models, as well as Ryan Shecklers Marana are one of the most popular pro-models
