Men's skateboarding shoes: signature styles that perform to the max
Looking for durable men's skate shoes that deliver on style? You've come to the right place. We've got cutting-edge looks ready to take the skatepark by storm, as well as nostalgic styles representing a classic era. You'll find design collabs with exciting artists, bright colours and bold fabrics. Meanwhile, suede overlays, pastel tones and mesh inserts deliver a 90s throwback vibe. Whatever your style, we've got a set of Nike men's SB trainers to show off what you can do on the board.
Go low or raise it up
Our range of men's skate shoes features both high tops and low, so you can find your perfect skate partner. For extended ankle support, pick a taller cut with a lace fastening that reaches right up to the top. If you prefer that free feeling, opt for a low-cut show that swoops below the ankle. Padded tongues and cushioned hems mean you get a comfortable fit, whatever your choice. This is also where you'll usually find our branded tabs, marking our skate shoes as ride-ready.
Feel the flex
We know agility is key to landing your best tricks. That's why our men's skate trainers are exceptionally flexible. Many of our styles use vulcanised construction to fuse the sole to the upper, increasing your range of movement. Featherweight canvas across the collection moves with you, reacting quickly when you need it most. Meanwhile, lace-up fronts let you adjust your men's skateboarding shoes to your preferred fit, helping your feet stay comfortable for all-day wear.
A foam sole like no other
Our drop-in Nike React insoles are made from a lightweight, durable foam that delivers a smooth, responsive ride and helps enhance board feel. We've been using this smart formula for a few years, and there's a reason why skaters love it. Whereas most foam is either soft or resilient, Nike React is both. It stayed strong and soft after serious machine testing that mimicked the forces of long-time use—which is why we're so confident it'll support your feet, however far you ride.
Prepare for air
If you love that feeling of walking on clouds, look out for our range of men's skate shoes with our innovative Zoom technology. Springy fibres in the sole compress to cushion the impact of your foot hitting the board, then quickly spring back to their original state. The result? An explosive, powerful response. Plus, it reduces stress on your muscles, joints and tendons, so you can feel great after every skate.
A trick to make the board stick
We'll let you in on a Nike secret: the best way to stay close to your board is with our grippy soles. Textured outsoles increase your control on the deck—no grip tape necessary. Durable rubber means they're crafted to deliver great traction, wear after wear. Many designs also have our iconic Swoosh incorporated underneath, so you can flash your superior taste when you go in for a flip.
