Editor’s Notes:

Affordable skate shoes that actually look great are always welcome in any skater’s rotation. That’s why we rounded up three stylish silhouettes from Converse that can take the gnarliest of skate abuse without breaking the bank. Available now at Zumiez, pro skater Alexis Sablone got a chance to design her own versions of the Jack Purcell Pro Mid and Louie Lopez Pro. Her blacked-out Jack Purcells are great for minimalists while the ‘Sunflower’ Louie Lopez Pro offers a solid pop of color.

For the purists who want a tried-and-true skate classic and are willing to experiment with bolder styling, look no further than these tie-dyed Chuck Taylor All-Stars. Featuring a unique, spider tie-dye pattern, the Black/Lemongrass and Pink/Cerise colorways will turn heads anywhere you go.
