Each brand and model of shoe is different. Though most any shoe can work, we suggest finding a comfortable, stylish shoe that has a flat sole. The flatter the better. Skateboard shoes make a great selection. Running shoes, or any shoe in which the heel and toe are curved sharply upward, or the sole has an aggressive tread are not the best choice. We have a lot more info on this subject here. If you have found a shoe you like and want to know what we think, send us the info at [email protected] and we will check it out.
