These shoes are great, except for the fact that they suck.
I've been skating in these for around two weeks now, a
couple hours a day. I'm a beginner-intermediate skater, so
it's not like I've been beating on them too hard. They've
torn on top, worn holes on the side, and the sole has been
ground down by the grip tape significantly. My grip isn't
the problem, since I've had other shoes that held up just
fine. These are comfortable shoes, and great for casual
wear, but don't buy them to skate in. At least not in

I have probably 7 or 8 pairs of chukka lows, they are my
favorite pair of shoes that Vans makes. Tons of colors and
they work well with jeans or shorts, and are comfortable for
even long walks, I don't skate in them, but i love these
shoes. About to order my 3rd pair of white ones in about 2

I ride bmx and have had these shoes for 2 weeks now. They're
very comfortable and I really like how much grip they have.
The only problem is last night when I was riding, I simply
put my foot down and the top of the shoe ripped apart.

I wear these daily at school. They wear well and feel really
comfortable right out of the box. These are fantastic for
longboarding as you get good board feel. I've heard they
tear easily for regular skating so I'd look elsewhere if
you're a hardcore skater although if you do skate you should
be used to buying a lot of shoes. That's just how the sport
is. Stop reading this and buy yourself a pair. Seriously.

I wear these pair everyday but they got worn out pretty
quickly relative to my other two year-old pair of vans, but
they look pretty good even after they got worn out. Things
that are great about this shoe that it's stylish and
comfortable, but the downside to all of this is that it got
worn out pretty good without skating with them once.

I wore my Chukkas for nearly a year daily, for non-athletic
use only. They were in very good condition until I started
wearing them to work, which is an 8-hour outdoor job. They
are still in good condition, only faded. Therefore, they are
extremely reliable shoes. Highly recommended.

About to buy my 3rd pair. Super comfortable, looks great,
perfect for skating. Heel starts to pull off after a few
months, I blame it on foot braking and bailing at speed but
a bunch of other people have had the same complaint. doesn't
really make a difference in wear ability though, I don't
think I've ever had a problem with water or anything getting
