How To Choose The Best Skateboarding Shoes For A Great Skateboard Experience

Aug 21, 2007
Skateboarding is one of the United States' most famous sports today. Many years have already passed and those who thought it wouldn't last were wrong and the others were right. Even though skateboarding is nice it is dangerous as well. You should be careful when you start riding a skateboard.

Skateboarding is going to be a good thing for years to come because it only requires a skateboard and a paved surface. For safety many skateboarders wear pads and helmets but many do not and therefore they get hurt.

Many people would think that any sport shoes would go good for skateboarding. This however is wrong; when you skateboard you need ankle protection and foot protection so you are going to need a good sturdy shoe.

When you are buying skate shoes you need to be aware of a couple of things including grip fit and protection.

The most important thing right now is protection over the boarder. The shoes have to be able to withstand a lot of force and should be flexible to meet the skateboarder's standards. Skateboarding shoes should give protection and should have a lot of grip for the boarder and board.

Just like any other type of shoe skateboarding shoes should feel good on your feet. They should give you stability and should feel good on the heels and sole of your foot. Shoes that don't provide a comfort will cause blisters and sores on your feet and will cause you to not be able to skateboard for a certain amount of time.

Skateboarding shoes need special laces that don't rip apart very easy. A normal pair of shoe laces would rip off after probably an hour of continuous skateboarding with a good skateboarder. These laces should be more durable than other types of shoelaces because of the grip on a skateboard is made if sandpaper. So they will just simply shred when a good rider does his tricks all day everyday.

The skateboarding shoe's grip should be able to grip to the board good so that the rider can do as he wants and doesn't lose the board. Shoes that the rider isn't used to might cause him to slip off as well with shoes that are brand new and just don't have any grip at all. The sole of the shoe should provide the foot to be able to grip the shoe to give the boarder room to do his tricks.

Even though some of these types of skateboarding shoes are expensive and pricey they are the only type of shoe for the job of skateboarding. If you do not have a pair of skateboarding shoes and you skateboard you need to get a pair before you hurt yourself.
