I was looking at http://skately.com/library/shoes and its crazy to see the changes in shoes from even the early 2000's till now. What do you think shoes could possibly look like ten years from now? I just dont know how they could change newer shoes to improve them.

I have a feeling shoes will get techy again. It will be a long and slow process  over time.

all the shoes that were out before the real over tech late 90s and early 2000s shoes looked similar to the ones we have now, simple and slim. since skate shoes follows fashion trends a definite return to that style is likely.

Let me see here.  Your name is 'Participation",  and all you could fucking participate was clicking the quote button, followed by the post button.

Way to participate.  Next time don't bother.



Also, what the fuck is this??  It's hideous.  Yet looks kind of like those bear foot slippers I had as a kid.

This is a joke, right?

You could skate just fine and do all your tricks in a pair of airwalks from 20 years ago...

Got these cheap at a contest in 1999, I had them a size and a half too big. Must have looked ridiculous.

shit, I loved these shoes sooo much.  I wonder how it would feel to skate a pair now.  Probably horrible.

I actually did hit another skater in the face with my shoe once at a demo doing a shoes fly off kickflip but he was cool with it.

Shoes are becoming more functional with every coming season.
Simple designs with more innovative materials. Finding ways to maximize boardfeel,support and durability.
I always see that unwavering nostalgia for shoes of yore, but I remember vividly how poorly made most were.
Icy soles, hard materials  and awkward colorways. All those things still happen but at least it's less frequent.
Shoes like the 1/2 cab,superstar,chuck taylor,dunk,blazer,sk8 hi,era will always be around. They're timeless and functional. The companies keep tinkering with them and are getting closer to making them better.
And with all the new insole companies it's easy to upgrade any shoe.
