Skate sneakers are expected to be decent footwear for skateboarders. The skateboarding shoes cannot be bulky as they can only cause troubles to the rider therefore the most popular style to use as skating sneakers is the low-top with high socks. Skating shoes of this type provide more room for the ankles movement and helping the rider be more active and flexible with the skateboard.

However at the same time high top shoes for skating are ideal if you want some stability and protection to your ankles. It can be perfect for some while being disturbing for others.

Quality of the materials

Skateboarding needs durable shoes no matter what are the skateboarder's level is and one of the most important things is the outside of the shoes.

Besides its durability, suede fabric also add some nice finish to the shoes and with that the sneakers appear a bit more classy no matter if they are red, grey or black.

Sole types

There are many types of soles so let's check out those relevant for skateboarding.

The inner soles of the shoes are important factor for the comfort for the rider. Insoles are essential because they receive the most weight directly and with that, it’s necessary to find quality insoles, such as G6 foams.

  • Midsole

Midsoles work the same way as the inner layers. However, they differ in their sizes. Insoles come with a full size, which is the standard for sneakers and while half midsoles offer various benefits, the most popular type to use for skating shoes is full-length.

  • Outer sole

This layer does lots of hard work as it deals with all the contact to the ground and the board’s grip tape therefore we need to make sure the skateboarding shoes outer sole is from quiality materials when picking shoes.


The level of comfort of the skating shoes is not measured only on its insole. It’s also evident from the parts of the shoes surrounding the feet.

A good skateboarding shoes would also have thicker tongue to close the shoe and to protect your feet from the impact of the skateboard when doing tricks.
