I love lrg tho :heart: would recommend them to skaters and non skaters
Ipath makes some pretty cool shoes.
Go to the different company’s websites :wink: soooo many selections

Back in the day it was always Vans and low Converses and I see them worn still today by most skater kids

My son was a scooter/skateboard kid. He liked DC’s, Vans and the canvas Nike’s. He also preferred and still prefers the Nike Elite, or like socks. They are tall. He isn’t a fan of short socks. Whatever you get, just make sure the bottoms of the shoes are rubber. For some unknown reason some shoe makers use a felt-like material which is slippery. Any shoe will wear, especially if worn for street skating and scootering, so don’t spend and arm and a leg. I’m not sure about others, but my son and his friends often removed the brakes and used their shoes for more control, making the shoe wear a bit faster.

Neff or Stance for socks and Vans or Supras for shoes

Wow I should own DC by now!

Vans or convers I used those alot growing up

Go to a skateboard shop. Vans/freedom
Dvs were always good
Black Van’s or checkered are always a hit
LRG
look online way more things available there. Also Pacific sunwear Carrie’s the best skate trendy clothing.

Neff socks
Also u can find allot out in target and Walmart that would be done
I’ve found "Nintendo "
“Rockos modern life” “koolaid” long socks at Walmart and my bf loves them w his Van’s. Like 6dollars a pack.

Vans,DC, or canvas converse

Van’s and they have Van’s long socks

Make sure you get suede Vans not canvas. Canvas will be trashed in a day.

World Industry for sure! Loved those n they’re very durable!
