WTF? Y R U not SK8-ing? Get UR A$$ off the computer, put on the Van's Men's SK8-Mid Skate shoe, turn on UR MP3 player, and SK8! Vans famous waffle/honeycomb combo tread gives you the grip and board feel you need to rip, and a padded collar increases comfort and support.

classically rad shoe, better than bling!
I have been wearing this shoe since high school and now at almost forty I still rock it. It's a a hip classic that I probably will wear till I'm 90. Then again I am not your average dude... Better than bling!
How wide are these? Specifically size...

Old School Style
These are great casual shoes for kicking around. Two complaints so far though. One, the laces have turned grey from the black shoe suede dye. Two, they rubbed a little on the back of my leg causing a blister when I first got them. Now that I have worn them a few times they don't rub as bad.
is the tongue of the shoe padded slightly...
is the tongue of the shoe padded slightly as well? or is it thin like the sk8 hi's?
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.
Classic like a Cadillac.
It doesn't get any better than the Vans Sk8-Mid. Classic Vans stripe down the side, Off the Wall logo on the back, Black and White tenderness. The Sk8-Mid gives you same look and feel of the Van Old Skool but with extra coverage in the ankle. Lace em up or leave em loose you are sure to get people talking about these shoes.
killer shoes,was waiting for the mids to come out
These are really comfortable and give you that old school feel with the protection and support of a mid. Plus they are Vans, best skate shoes ever!
