I have Fallen. Theyre not that popular but you can find them at most skateboarding stores.

They works good with my pedals for trials.

I've tried a lot of shoes by now for street/flat and the only way to go are Nike 6.0. They've last me 5 times longer (at least) than any other shoes, plus you can get low or mid top for ankle protection. A lot of other riders also use them (Anna Jinks, Eli Brill, Will Riley, Bobousse, Kevin K., ect.)

For Flat/Street I wear DC A-250s coz they are like a skate shoe (flat sole, thick ankle walls) but they aren't as bulky at the end. They are kinda half skate, half runner

I use any of the 5 10 freeride shoes. They stick to pedals like glue, so if your cranks or pedals get wet you don't slip around or anything. Also I believe that they come in mid top also. I have been very happy with them.

funny because I was actually considering purchasing adidas sambas for riding. it seems like they're a great compromise between a fat, padded, traditional skate shoe and the thinner, more flexible converse.

That being said. I ride with either my converses or old sneakers.

I<3 Sambas.
I ride in those too, I find they feel the most comfortable while riding. And that's why I use'em. Now when it comes to what are the best, I couldn't tell you that.
'Cause I just ride in what feels good.

I have Vans shoes now, they worn out pretty fast from Gliding but they are good for Trials, Street, Flatland, Muni, distance.... They're good for everything, I have High tops too so it doesn't kill my ankle when riding Flatland.

I thought about buying Try-All shoes, I dont know how long they would last though. I'll think about those depending on how long my Vans last.

I had the Vans full cab. They were really comfortable right of the box and didn't require a whole lot of breaking in, but they wore out way too fast.

Anybody have thoughts about shoes with no laces, like the van slip ons. Or do they not get snug enough?

I ride MUni and trials with these:



They're Contours walking trainers. The sole is ridiculously thick, they offer a massive amount of grip, built solidly, but they weigh a tonne. The pedals on my MUni have wrecked my other pair of shoes after one small ride, but these shoes stay solid, showing only minor damage.
Although I haven't tried riding with laceless shoes, I'd imagine they would be too loose.

I have used 5-10s and teva links and the 5-10s are my favorite but i like the tevas because i can still do flat with them.
