Nike Dunk SB.  Lightweight, great feel all-around, and thin for those of us who like that.  I recommend wearing them when you're out too (for a while), they get better as you wear them in.  I bought Loteks and it felt like I was riding with bricks on my feet.

:huh: can you ride flat in those

back in the early/mid 90s i used to help run the gates at the Secaucus bmx track in my 20 hole Docs, then ride in them after the races.
they are hard to ride in and the soles will wear fast if u scuff, but it is possible to ride in them.haha....definitely not recommended tho. :P

I have Lotek Coastals in white and there pretty good. They hold up very well, and they have good bottoms. I went over them with sharpie to make them more "me"

Why doesn't Terry/anyone else that has shoe sponsors jump on here & pump their brand?

It seems something like this would be the perfect opportunity

I've tried lotek, etnies, & adiddas and adidas always win.  I just wish that they made a shoe w/ the same rubber material on the toes and put it on the insides of each shoe as well, where the shoe wears down from constant contact w/ forks/chainstay...

No i dont ride in them. That was just frustration since my favorite shoe, lotek throwbacks, arent made anymore. nothing quite compares, at least for me.

These are most likely terrible shoes for riding flatland.  Typically anything with a Vulcanized rubber sole is bad news.  Old school Vans, Chuck Taylors, etc.  No support and super flimsy.

Yes,

I went on a bmx trip a few short weeks ago and I left my riding shoes @ the camp site. I ended up having to ride for the day in my Lakai mj2 selects.

Long story short;
It sucked and my feet felt like I was rock climbing barefoot all day long.
