Skate Shoes for All
When it comes to skate sneakers, Vans is the leader, and our classic designs never go out of style. From skateboarding classics like the Skate SK8-Hi Shoe to icons like the Skate Slip-On Checkerboard Shoe, our shoes for skateboarding have stood the test of time.
Skateboarding Sneakers with Style
Need shoes for skateboarding that also look good with casual wear? What about skate shoes that can keep up with skateboarding legends like Kyle Walker and Zion Wright?
Our Skate Old Skool™ Shoe is designed to keep up with the demands of modern skateboarding. With classic suede and canvas uppers on the outside and POPCUSH™ energy return footbeds on the inside, you can skate for longer in pure comfort. These skateboard sneakers come in a variety of colors and feature a reconstructed design, giving you more board control without compromising on style.
For an iconic look, try the Skate SK8-Hi® Shoe. Designed as a nod to the classic high-top skater shoe, it offers all of the performance and durability of our other skateboarding sneakers but with a little bit of an extra edge. With higher sidewalls and extreme cushioning, you can skate for hours and hours knowing that your feet are well protected. After all, what are skate shoes if they aren’t durable enough to survive the street and skate park?
What are the Best Shoes for Skateboarding?
Any pair of Vans skateboarding sneakers are the best shoes for skateboarding. The much-loved Skate Slip-On Shoe may look relaxed and low-key but it’s built with performance, accessibility, and durability in mind. With reinforced DURACAP™ materials on the toe bumpers, you can enjoy endless hours at the skate park without compromising your comfort. With SickStick™ vulcanized gum rubber compound on the outsole, skaters can move with total grip confidence - no extra grip tape necessary. Available in classic colorways including the iconic Vans Checkerboard print, these skater sneakers can take you from the skate park to going out with minimal effort. No wonder these are some of our best sellers!
