skate shoes are awesome

skate shoes trend how to wear skate shoes

Radical, Gnarly. Dude. SICK. Skate shoes are the latest and greatest addition to the comfort footwear trend. While ugly footwear is making a comback this year, I’ll be passing on the Birkenstocks and the “Pool Sliders” and stick with the Skate Shoes. A firm favourite in my wardrobe during the teenager years but have had a luxe update for the fashion elite. Flash back to 2004, I got myself a pair of Checkerboard Vans (like 99% of the teenage population) and wore them till my toe poked through the fabric. Yeah loved ‘em. The popularity died down and now they are making a firm comeback for 2014. Did I really think I’d be wearing skate shoes in 2014? Not really. Does it really matter if you can’t skate? Nah?

  3. I loved my Vans. They had bats on them. I was totally cool. I love the Topshop ones, they're so pretty! Maybe I need to make an investment soon! x

  9. I honestly can't believe they've made a comeback either and to think I sold all my 4 pairs of old Vans last year. Haha! I've got two pairs though. =P x

  16. I don't get the whole 'ugly' shoe thing either. They're so incredibly weird.

    I'm definitely still a Vans / Converse sort of girl. I think my first pair of Vans were the neon pink ones with the black bats. Fashion!

  23. I started wearing skate shoes when I was 7 after "borrowing" a pair of my brother's old ones. I did actually skate from the age of 7 - 11 so my collection of skate shoes (mainly Etnies, never Vans) was rather extensive. I actually kind of miss how comfortable they are but I don't want to go back to them, I'm too in love with heels to favour comfort now.

  30. Have you seen the H&M faux snakeskin ones? They are just uh-mazing for summer but I can't find my size anywhere! QworterLifeCrisis

  31. Loved these shoes, I've spied a matte version too on their website that I'll probably get more wear from than the shiny! Or maybe both because they're so damn nice!

  32. I just CANNOT get into the ugly shoe trend either. Just.. why?! But anyway, I might buy a pair of these skate shoes to take with me on city breaks and days to London. I always wanted to look 'stylish' when I go on city breaks but I always end up crippling my feet. I need something stylish and practical! xxx

  37. like you, i could not be happier the skate shoe is making a come back! i always wanted a pair when they first came about but they weren't really my style and i couldn't pick a pair for them to still be 'in' anyway. this time round though, i'll be there with a pair! i've seen a pair of plain black, velvet (i think) ones from topshop that i've definitely got my eye on but i'm loving the ones you've linked above as well! :) X
