A shoe is an item of footwear intended to protect and comfort
the human foot while doing various activities. Such activities include the sport
of skateboarding. Skateboarding is an action sport which involves riding and
performing tricks using a skateboard. Skateboarding can also be considered a recreational
activity, an art form, a job, or a method of transportation. An important
aspect of skating is being able to actually stay on top of the skateboard without
falling off. Therefore, we strongly suggest that you avoid trying to skate
in high heels.
Whilst early skateboarders generally rode barefoot, preferring
direct foot-to-board contact, and some skaters continue to do so, one of the early
leading trends associated with the sub-culture of skateboarding itself, was the
sticky sole "Slip-On" Skate shoe, most popularized by Sean Penn's skateboarding
character from the film Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Because early skateboarders
were actually surfers trying to emulate the sport of surfing, at the time when skateboards
first came out on the market, many skateboarded barefoot. But skaters often lacked
traction, which led to foot injuries (yeah, it's pretty obvious that barefoot skating
would be rather risky).
which eventually became cultural iconic signifiers for skateboarders during the
70s & 80's as skateboarding became more widespread. As it eventually became
more apparent that skateboarding had a particular identity with a style of shoe,
other brands of shoe companies began to specifically design skate shoes for functionality
and style to further enhance the experience and culture of skateboarding including
such brands as; Converse, Nike, DC Shoes, Adidas, Zoo York and others.
Many professional skateboarders have a pro-model skate shoe
with their name on it. This usually only occurs after they have received large
skateboarding sponsorship because they have already becoming notable skateboarders.
