What makes a skate shoe “good” is really up to the skater. Some prefer a lightweight shoe with a lot of board feel, while other skaters prefer a super cushioned shoe to protect from impact. It really is all up to what you feel the most comfortable skating in.
Made with skateboarders in mind, skate shoe construction is not like regular walking shoes. Skate shoes’ outsoles are made with high-quality rubber material, which is highly abrasion-resistant and shock absorbent, while the insoles are usually very flat for a good board feel. Skate shoes are designed to last through the punishment skating puts them through. So are they bad for your feet? No. but if you are training for a marathon or hiking a mountain, you may want to pick a more suitable shoe for that purpose.
Some of the longest-lasting skate shoes include DC Wes Kremer, Vans Gilbert Crockett, Nike SD Dunk low, Emerica Reynolds 3 G6 Vulc, and Etnies Marana skate shoes
