A lot of articles will say there are over 10 types of shoes a guy should have in his arsenal, but for a skateboarder it’s usually two; one to wear and one to skate.
Don’t get me wrong, plenty of skateboarders have lives outside of the sport, and to some skateboarding is everything, so skaters will have more or less, but to a huge chunk it’s all about the rotation.
The rotation, also known as “one to wear, one to skate,” serves two purposes: function and fashion – a pair to perform in and a pair to chill in.
So, it’s always beneficial to double up at the register, especially if you like the shoes! But, we’ll go further into that another time.
The premise that buying an extra pair keeps you fresh is intuitively easy to agree with. The logic is tough to pick apart. Using one pair specifically for skateboarding and the other for everyday wear stops you from walking around with Swiss cheese on your feet.
