i love how these look on a skateboard, i think superstars and half cabs are the best looking skate shoes (even though superstars arenít really skate shoes but you know what i mean).

Sean Mullendore one of the most underrated of all time.

I feel 1996 all over this. Jokes aside I love this shoe but the laces rip way too quick.

I feel 1996 all over this. Jokes aside I love this shoe but the laces rip way too quick.

i just superglue them and they're good to go. my only gripe with these shoes is that the tongue is connected to the toebox, and after you break the stitching on the side near the first stripe (which takes no more than 3-4 sessions) they get pretty loose in the front and you can see kind of like a gap between the toebox and the side panel. it doesn't affect my skating but i don't like how that looks, other than that they're perfect.

4 wheels skates a ton of shelltoes in his part in this joint, many great fits in here, starts at 10:30 or so

Always felt shelltoes were too hard in the soles and I couldnít feel my board. Campus were better and Puma Clydes. Shelltoes were the choice for chilling.

I thought so too now for the past year I've gotten better flick and support from shelltoes. The superstar 80s has a better boardfeel but my favorite is the pro model with the puffy tongue

Did you ever actually skate in these pieces of shit.  Sure in theory they're great, but the toe had no grip and it always ripped the seam where the toe cap connected and busted open after 1 week.  Used to be 20 bucks a pair at Value City though in an wra when all skate shoes were like 80 bucks +

They skate great and grip well. The toe flicks good . Im talking about the regular ones  too. Never had skate ones. And they have been durable. Takes a while to get used the flick since the sole just goes straight up the shell.

I had the vulc adv ones before. Not bad but the classic normal shelltoe is the best one.

Anybody that has skated shelldogs know that this is the start of where the flick gets really good and consistent. Figured I might as well make a post appreciating my new ones, and not just the legends that wear/wore them.

Easily top 5 shoe. Thereís nothing better than looking down at your feet and seeing a fresh white pair. These are all in rotation and the ADV ones (except the clear ones) but I prefer the normal ones for sure

I feel shelltoes are becoming hot.
Adidas screwed up with the first skate versions. I recall feedback about them becoming soggy and deforming fast.
Met a friend skating them. He had the vanilla versions from your typical sports store. He was stoked on the looks, the flick, the boardfeel.
Got myself the slip-on versions with puffy tongue and they hug feet really well. Looking forward to skate them, but I feel I'll need replacements for chilling.

Yes they are. I have 4 pairs of the black toe ones. 1 to wear and 3 on ice. My outlet had them (and the 3ST04s) for $45 with 40% off so I went nuts. My Adidas outlet has had almost every skate model in for MEGA cheap. I could never find these at the skate shop here. One day they had Busnitezís for hella cheap so I bought every one in my size (same as the shells) we all did. 3 in this photo and went back and got more. so stoked(https://i.ibb.co/jZ0cxZQ/66-F0-BE7-C-413-F-462-E-BF5-C-27-CF59-F81-C3-A.png) (https://ibb.co/jZ0cxZQ)(https://i.ibb.co/r3WLXkV/A2-B7-D7-C4-FDC8-4397-8756-23-DE6-FDCB26-D.png) (https://ibb.co/r3WLXkV)(https://i.ibb.co/r0K6sRD/F6521-A46-449-A-4-B49-BFEC-4-DECEE38-DB70.png) (https://ibb.co/r0K6sRD)

Edit - I will say that I am a sneaker addict. I have expensive Jordanís and rare Nikes but my real passion is getting a bargain. Itís like a drug. Do I need multiple black toe shellys? No. But I canít say no! I would punch myself in the balls later for not buying them all in my size ha!

Yes they are. I have 4 pairs of the black toe ones. 1 to wear and 3 on ice. My outlet had them (and the 3ST04s) for $45 with 40% off so I went nuts. My Adidas outlet has had almost every skate model in for MEGA cheap. I could never find these at the skate shop here. One day they had Busnitezís for hella cheap so I bought every one in my size (same as the shells) we all did. 3 in this photo and went back and got more. so stoked(https://i.ibb.co/jZ0cxZQ/66-F0-BE7-C-413-F-462-E-BF5-C-27-CF59-F81-C3-A.png) (https://ibb.co/jZ0cxZQ)(https://i.ibb.co/r3WLXkV/A2-B7-D7-C4-FDC8-4397-8756-23-DE6-FDCB26-D.png) (https://ibb.co/r3WLXkV)(https://i.ibb.co/r0K6sRD/F6521-A46-449-A-4-B49-BFEC-4-DECEE38-DB70.png) (https://ibb.co/r0K6sRD)

Edit - I will say that I am a sneaker addict. I have expensive Jordanís and rare Nikes but my real passion is getting a bargain. Itís like a drug. Do I need multiple black toe shellys? No. But I canít say no! I would punch myself in the balls later for not buying them all in my size ha!

Haha awesome. I love the determination!
Some of my favourite photos. It had me on the hunt for white/gum ones ever since.  Is Gino actually on Adidas or is he just a free agent?

Easily top 5 shoe. Thereís nothing better than looking down at your feet and seeing a fresh white pair. These are all in rotation and the ADV ones (except the clear ones) but I prefer the normal ones for sure

i just superglue them and they're good to go. my only gripe with these shoes is that the tongue is connected to the toebox, and after you break the stitching on the side near the first stripe (which takes no more than 3-4 sessions) they get pretty loose in the front and you can see kind of like a gap between the toebox and the side panel. it doesn't affect my skating but i don't like how that looks, other than that they're perfect.
Yes, superglue.

I always have at least one pair of ST in my possession but have only skated one pair in my life probably 25 years ago. They held up for a long time (couple months of ollies and failed kickflips) because I superglued everything on them. At the time I was skating Puma Suedes (still do) and ripped half the sole clean off after front foot slipped off and landed toes first. Only other pair I had were white superstars so had no choice. Broke as fuck, gotta skate something.

I ran a bead of Superglue on a toothpick along every god damn seam and stitch. I used a toothpick to do it nice and not ruin the look. Took a while. Then I put them on, laced them up, and soaked the first few lace loops in SG as well.

Sometimes they even come with a metal ring/jewel/charm whatever it's called on the bottom lace (these things : http://www.ebay.com/itm/201466666452) which you can slide to the side and glue in place to protect the laces if you're gonna skate 'em.

I remember not liking them too much for skating, but they sure as fuck look good. I love Shelltoes so much.

By the way, all you suave motherfuckers, this is a thing now :
