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).

Vans sneakers, 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.
