* Here’s how to nail skate style
* Skate shoes from Adidas, Vans, Emerica and more
* All under $100
Skate shoes are now a sneaker collection staple. They’re one of the most popular sneakers in the fashion world, with modern style icons from Jayden Smith to Jonah Hill rocking the low-key kicks.
Skate shoes are especially versatile in 2019 because they’re more youthful (and more affordable) than designer sneakers or dress shoes, but they’re less casual than running shoes or trainers. Good skate shoes are ideal for traveling because they’re comfortable and go with just about every pair of pants or shorts you own. And with offices getting more casual, you can even rock some clean skate shoes at work too.
To help find your spring/summer skate shoes this year, we rounded up some of our favorites that you can buy on Zappos. They’re all reasonably priced at under $100, and stylish on anyone – skater or not.
1. Adidas Skateboarding 3MC
For a minimal skate shoe, go for this 3MC from Adidas. They feature a clean black and white colorway and a low-profile silhouette that looks great under slacks or slightly baggy chinos.
2. Emerica Wino Standard
If you’re in need of some new all-white sneakers these Emericas are a great option. They showcase a low-key look and feature a cushioned footbed that lends all-day comfort, whether you’re skating or commuting.
3. Vans ComfyCush SK8
These Vans look like the classic SK8 shoe that’s seen a huge resurgence lately, but they actually have a few tricks up their sleeves for added comfort. The kicks feature a padded collar and footbed, a special ComfyCush sockliner, and a few other clever features to keep your feet from getting tired.
4. Adidas Skateboarding Samba
Adidas’ timeless Samba is one of a few retro sneakers to make a comeback in the past couple years. They come in a plethora of great colorways, but we think they look especially good in this eye-catching gold and black color combination. For a bulletproof summer outfit, rock them with shorts and a trendy graphic tee.
5. Adidas Skateboarding x Beavis & Butt-Head
Skating culture has always had a sense of humor, so Adidas’ collab with Beavis & Butt-Head is a no-brainer. These matchcourts are some of our favorite sneakers from the collab with a retro high-top style and the two famous cartoon characters printed on the heels.
6. SeaVees Hermosa
These SeaVees sneakers are a little more grown-up than most skate kicks, and feature a unique woven upper that’s perfect for warm weather. Wear them with shorts or chinos and a crisp solid tee or button-up for maximum grown-up skater style this summer.
