Skateboarders are sneakerheads, but not in they way that you might think. Most of them require the latest and greatest footwear to earn their living and to keep their feet protected from the rigors of skating.

From big ticket names like Paul Rodriguez to Shane O'Neil, learn a bit more about their style and how quick they trash a pair of kicks on the course. You can catch these skaters and more when they hit the SLS tour circuit this summer.
