    I love Geoff Rowley skate shoes. Here's the ones I'm wearing (but they're the olive green ones, which apparently are no longer available):

    i liked the old vans and airwalks from the mid nineties... just, plain. no fancy stitching or shoelaces.

    me too. i like to think of the ones i've got as sort of plain, if you consider what all the other ones look like.

    i feel like i'm stalking you.

    that's okay. i like the attention.
    i've got those um. what are they? they've got a big E on them. i don't even know the brand. i like them. but my least favorite part is the E.

    I'm thinking those might be Etnies? Also very good and nice looking shoes.

    Vans are probably the worst skate shoes ever! Specially the new ones. They look cool, but are totally not practical for skating. I got a pair of the new XL2’s (they’re vegan) and wore ollie holes in them in a matter of 4 hours! Man I was mad, they cost me like $50!

    Anyone know of any practical(as in skate worthy!) vegan shoes? The only thing holding my shoes together at the moment is a lot of tape!

    i'm not a skater but... they tell me that these etnies i have are designed for ollies. that's what the massive horizontal Es are for on the sides.

    Oh no! Sorry to hear that. I am not a skater either, but my vans have lasted through everything else. I wear them when I go mini-hiking.
