well looks depend on your own personal opinions on the shoe.

and as for quality, avoid anything with a "smooth" bottom, and try to get something with as "rough" of a bottom as possible for lack of better descriptions. you want them "rough" so they grip the pedals as much as possible, kind of common sense stuff. haha

shoes with good gripping bottoms: Vans (waffle grip), DC, Etnies, Lotek, Nike.
shoes with not so good gripping bottoms: Fallen, Circa, Lakai

this is what i mean by "rough" grip...

shoes don't increase / decrease you riding ability.

just pick a shoe you like and ride it!!!

has anyone ever tried riding in converse lowtops. the soles are so soft you can feel exactly where the pedal is. went riding in them a couple times but probably wont ever again.

that makes it sound like the wear out fast. how long did you have each pair?

my hemp Ipath Yogis are still going after FIVE YEARS of riding on them.

they dont wear out that fast. i have 7 pairs like right now at the moment. i use them as regular shoes until my riding pair is destroyed and then i pick a pair to use for riding. get it? lol.. it sounds confusing to me.

those types of sole patterns work great! the nubs from the pedals "click" into the little sections and stick there well. that's the style i'm currently using and they're the best i've used. the ones i'm using are older addidas shoes.

different shoess grip differently. it makes a big difference.
