Skate Shoes Good For Non Skating Thread

yea i piggybacked off the thread for the opposite title. wondering what suggestions you'd give for a pair of shoes for just chilling/walking around. heard good things about the project ba, but cant find any new in my size. ive got some 574 new balances and they are ok, but am looking for something else. i hate walking around in blown out skate shoes all day, figure i should start to treat my feet right.

Peep ebay for the Project BA mesh ones or whatever. They are the most comfortable shoes I've had in a while. Might feel even better with gamechanger insoles too

This is where Gravis were such a great company because you could wear their shoes in tonnes of situations and still bust in them if need be. I have some emerica romero laced that I'd probably never skate but they do okay for business causal

This. I was 31 years old when I realised that skate shoes are not walking shoes and got myself a pair of NB 574ís as well. Now I use skateshoes only when skating and my feet couldnít be happier, just regret that I didnít figure this this earlier... Rocking a pair of Onitsuka Tigers atm

I agree that runners feel better for standing all day or walking, but my problem is that 99.999% of non-skate shoes are hideously ugly. I honestly don't get it. Why do people want shoes in such tacky color schemes that look like moon boots? It's so hard to find a pair of runners that's one color, without wacky panels and a ridiculous looking sole. I've had several pairs of Reebok runners, but they blew out super quick.

Ah, I've been curious about those. I've been looking for a good all day skate/chill shoe.

Honestly might actually be the best skate shoes I've ever had, and I don't fuck with Nike (got em for free). Thinner cupsole and quite durable to boot. Definitely has saved me from plenty a heel bruise and I've spent some long days on my feet in them.

I have two pairs of the prime knit and one of the suede. Great walking shoe. You can find em super cheap now cause I think theyíre phasing it out.

This 100%. It took me till 28 to start taking care of my feet when not skating. Find a nice breathable chilling shoe with lots of soft cushioning. This is what I'm on, my feet feel nice.



Walking the beat in skate shoes is so 2011.

grabbed a pair of these (NMD R2) on sale from an Adidas outlet last week; the boost sole is unbelievably comfortable/bouncy. I cant speak for their skate line that uses boost, but Id guess those are probably pretty comfortable as well.
Has anyone really been far as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

The Emerica Reynolds are really comfortable. Not the vulcs but the normal ones. Haven't skated in mine yet but just for wearing around and walking and whatever they're the most comfortable shoes I've had in ages. They don't make them anymore but the G6s don't feel too bad either. Haven't worn mine other than testing them out yet so hard to say how they're compared to the older Reynolds.

I tried out some Adidas Ultraboost Primeknits at the Adidas outlet some time ago. Went in with my Reynolds and I gotta say that just testing the Ultraboosts out, I don't know what the hype is about Boost. They felt terrible compared to my Reynolds. The Primeknit also feels floppy and unsupportive. I absolutely hate new shoes and love well broken in shoes though and I didn't test them for long. Just walked around the shop a bit.

Silas 1 and Janoski Air Max from personal experience.

Has anyone tried NB 420 or those weird Lakais?
