I always wear my beaters such as my pumas and chucks while riding cause I hate to mess up my nike sb's and jordans. It sucks that I can't wear nice sneaks while riding. what shoes do you all wear when riding? sneakers, boots, flip-flops, no shoes..........???

I hope you are kidding...

I wear A* S-MX plus vented racing boots. I don't ride unless I am in full gear, which includes boots.

I wear just regular beater shoes or else my fancy work shoes because i ride my bike to work almost every day. It scuffs them up a little bit but my bike always looks good on display at my car dealership.

Those SMX boots are popular. Its what I wear too! Just threw some Dr Scholls gel inserts in there and I can wear them all day long! They look cool too...

well my bike is my main ride to/from school and work so wearing boots to school everyday might seem a bit odd. Plus, I don't have any riding boots.

A*s SMX boots. You're just a broken or contused ankle waiting to happen. You'll have lots of time to think about how stupid you were to ride with sneakers while you're waiting for weeks on end to heal enough to ride again.

Might seem a bit odd not having a foot too.

Easy solution. Keep your school shoes in your locker. It's what I do every day for work.

A* SMX

If I'm going somewhere where I'm going to be walking a lot, I'll carry a pair of shoes in a backpack. I like my feet and ankles the way they are and I intend to keep them that way.

You just keep gathering up those squid points. I thought you said in your other post you weren't a squid and always wore gear.


Get some boots. You wont regret it. I feel alot more comfortable and confident on my bike wearing riding boots.

The first year I wore an old pair of Timbos. This year I got the SMX 4's too. They don't cost too much more that a nice pair of sneakers and they're worth it. When I work at the club I just throw my dress shoes in a back pack and change when I get there.

I just bought some Oxtar street boots/shoes... All this talk about contusions and compund ankle breaks and stuff I wish I would have got a more serious boot! Oh well its got to be better than regular shoes, I used to always wear a pair of military style boots till I got the Oxtars. With time ill get some real boots like A*smx
