Gear Question

is the tongue of the shoe padded slightly...

Posted on

is the tongue of the shoe padded slightly as well? or is it thin like the sk8 hi's?

Responded on

The tongue on the Vans Sk8 Mid is thin. The entire shoe is thin with no padding what so ever. It may seem that there is padding but Vans has put leather around the critical areas of the shoe. In the heel and ankle area specifically.

well my friend had a pair of the sk8 hi's and cut most of the higher ankle support off tothe point where it was about the same height as a mid. so i was wondering if the look would be the same it seems theres more padding on the collar of the shoe wear it goes around ur ankle.
