    There are a couple threads on shoes...there is one in the skating safety forum where they actually post pictures.

    BUT I will answer and say that I tend to go for high tops because I cracked my ankle with my board when I just messing around and I thought I shattered something. My left ankle was twice the size of my right and walking was a nightmare. I don't always wear them, but if I have the choice and I know I may have an accident, I go for high tops. Gravis Oxford Mids have a lot of padding and are really cushy.

    I ride whatever is cheap because they all get grinded into nothing eventually anyway. That is, if you don't skate like a little beeeeeeeyatch

    I was the same way with the slip-ons, but they are prone to falling off when you try to push really really fast. Try out some Vans Classics. I just bought some and they're awesome. No more falling off problems, feel good on the board, and I think they might even have the same grip as slip-ons(maybe thicker too).

    Look up vans prison issue. I've had a couple pair of them and i love riding in them. You can really feel the board, they're really grippy, and you ignore laces without having to worry about them slipping off.
