Do you or your kids wear skate shoes?

Do you or your kids wear skate shoes, even if you have never skate boarded? Why do nonskaters wear skate shoes? Are you a poser if you do?

  • My son and hubby both wear skate shoes. They both skate though.. Hubby bought me some DC's but I dont wear them cuz I dont skate and I think I'd look a lil silly wearing them.. I guess if its the style they like it doesnt really make them a poser, but I am a 31 year old woman.. I'd just look goofy in DC shoes ya know.. and I dont really think skate shoes are a seasonal thing... they really do help when the person actually skates. so they shouldnt necessarily be "out" now

  • No and I don't think skate shoes can be compared to skateboards, lol. Big difference.

  • My son had some skate shoes once, he's 9. And he's never been on a skateboard. Skate shoes are so 2 years ago.

  • The Heelies? I think that's how they are spelled anyway. I never let my children have them when they were in style because I think there is a time and place to rollerskate and rollerblade with safety equipment on. Many public places prohibit them now due to liability.

  • OP- not heelies. Skate shoes. Skate shoes are shoes used during skate boarding. Like DCs.

  • I wear them and don't skate. I have DC's and Van's. My son's a skater and wears DC's and Van's. He encouraged me to get them and I like the look and they are comfy. And no, I am not a poser. I don't claim to be a skater.

  • I have worn DCs and Vans and i have a pair of vans right now. i wear them cuz they are kinda puffy i guess the material they are made with is kinda thick and they feel really comfortable

  • i wear skate shoes, so does my hubby, we both used to skateboard when we were younger, but the shoes are super comfy, and i prefer vans and the sole on vans is guarenteed to never wear, my dad has a pair of high top canvas vans, that hes had since he was 17, hes now 50 and still has them, the canvas tore so many times and hes sewn them, but the sole looks brand new still..
