vegan skate shoes?

#1 Postby Hero » Wed Oct 19, 2005 7:16 pm

if anyone has any size 12 vegan skate shoes laying around they dont wear, Id be more than happy to purchase them off of you.

I am in dire need of some shoes, and almost all shoes around here have leather in them or are wayyy to expensive.

so holla at me if you got some, and I'll throw some cash your way in exchange for em.

there are two kinds of blackspot sneakers, the new one (which is totally ugly in my opinion) and the "old" one, which looks like a typical converse shoe.
i'll buy myself a pair of the old one.
if you don't like them, some vans are vegan (i've got the rowley xl2)
they have cost me about ~42$

Alot of New Balance are vegan.

I have been wearing Nikes for the past year or so... I have been able to find alot of Nikes that are vegan. I just recently got a pair of Shox which are comfortable as hell.

My s/o bought some non-leather Vans just a couple of months ago. They cost about $60, as I recall.

for a list of vegan skate shoes.


thanks everyone for suggestions. but I was hoping to buy some used ones as I dont have very much $$

I am currently wearing handed-down new balances. but I need another pair of shoes to skate in.

I think the hi-top DVS Huf4 were vegan if you got the synthetic ones, and they had the bonus of being a Dunk hi look-alike

i'm really dubious about a lot of skate companies who claim synthetic shoes as vegan but tend to use horse glue in them.

I used to wear canvas Vans to skate.

You should get the checkered ones, because they're the coolest looking :)
