When picking our a skate shoe, you'll want one that can sustain puddles, treacherous skate parks, and nasty spills. All of the brands on our list of best skate shoe brands can do that. It's up to you to decide which brand is the best.

Sure, it's all about personal preference when it comes to your action sports shoe, but there are some things you'll want to look for. You'll want a shoe that's been stitched together, not just glued, so that they stay in tact for a long time. Canvas shoes work if you're not doing any crazy moves, but if you're going to get extreme, you might consider a thicker leather or suede. Weight, grip, and padding are also key to consider. But the choice is up to you!

You already know the big skate name brands: Vans, Converse, and DVS. And brands like Etnies, Volcom, and Emerica have been around forever. Don't see a brand on our list? Add it!
