What the title says - do you own vans? The shoes thread seems to
indicate that you probably do...

Nope, I have owned, in all of my life, one pair of vans shoes.

I keep my shoe choice simple, convers hightops, or ones from walmart.

working on level 4 and I just started the level system. I also don't
even like the level system

My emericas were pretty strong, though they looked as though they were
made entirely of cake icing (the bad cardboardy kind you get on the
boxed birthday cakes from supermarkets). The best shoes I've ever owned
were my Osiris', though they were a little big...

Wow, I've worn a pair of Vans every day since... end of april I THINK,
and they were the cheapest Vans in the store ($40, I can't tell what
model, sorry) And so far they don't show a SINGLE sign of wear anywere.
And I ride street, trials, muni, freestyle in them. Before these Vans I
had NSS shoes that were literally destroyed in little over 2 months.

I love them. The bottoms are perfect for unicycling, stiff enough and
flat with the right tread for pinned pedals. I've done a bunch of not
too fast gliding on a knobby tire with them, and I am suprised they
have no wear at all.

I have a pair of Vans that I wear for my urban and neighborhood riding.
I have a pair of Nike hightops that I wear for MUni. I got the Nike
shoes at an outlet mall so they were sort of cheap.

I wear DVS shoes and I love them so much. They are about a year old now
and they still look brand new. I use to wear nike shoes and stuff like
that, and those would have fallen apart by now. The type of leather
they used on the outside is shiny and stays shiny, so whatever it is, I
love it.

.......

Plus the sales woman (my age) at the element store was really hot and
was hitting on me the whole time, haha. Then afterwards I was browsing
around the store and she spanked me while she was walking by and
winked, so maybe that has something to do with my fond memories towards
them... : -P. That was an awesome day, haha.

No but I've got two cars. Sorry :rolleyes:

I wanted something with some ankle cover and Vans only seem to do low
cut shoes. I thought about 661 Duallys but was put off by Roger saying
his don't last long (but he admits to being hard on shoes). My riding
shoes spend most of their time wet and gritty so I wanted something
that should be nice and strong and durable.

I've just bought a pair of Five-Ten Impacts (came this morning) -
they're about the same price as the 661s but look to be more rugged (I
hope) and have had good reviews from mountain bikers so I thought I'd
give them a go. First impressions are pretty good - they look
well-made but not too heavy and are very well padded round the ankle.
I'll put a review up when I've tried them out.
