Well, surprisingly enough my feet barely have an arch to them so basketball shoes and the like aren't comfortable anymore. I love the colors and designs skate shoes come in as well, I mean usually basketball shoes or other shoes are really colorful and bright, whereas I have an all-black pair of air speeds and I love them. They're very comfortable, soft, and they fit me perfectly. And, to top it all off, a nice pair of skate shoes are inexpensive and go with any outfit. All I wear is black, and with a black, comfy pair of skate shoes it fits me completely.
