The Top 4 Shoes to C-walk in:
Alright! Let’s start the list off at number four:
NUMBER (4)
converse
Ranking in at number four for the top four C-walk Shoes is: All Stars. These Converse high tops are known for (in the C-walk Community) their use by old school walkers. The shoe was a popular find on OG Crip walkers (still can be seen in many videos by people who do the Original Crip Walk). Still today you see many Clown and C-walkers using this shoe.


NUMBER (3)

adidas
The number 3 spot is held by a brand of shoes rather than a specific one; Adidas. This brand is one of the most common shoe brand to Crip walk in. Popular styles include: Gazelles, which came in many cool styles including blue suede. A few other honorable mentions are: Sambas (the indoor soccer shoe), Super Stars (another one of the top Adidas C-walk Shoes), and Good year. The List continues on…

NUMBER (2)
AF1
The shoe that came in second place is one I don’t really agree on, but from an anonymous internet poll our users selected Air Force Ones as one of the top cwalk shoes.

NUMBER (1)
Cortez
Finally, the number one shoe to c-walk in is: Nike Cortez. The shoe is valued from 40 dollars (basic) to 120 dollars (custom or limited edition). The shoe is the most common shoe that C-walkers use and has been voted the easiest shoe to C-walk in by Dance Origin Staff and members.

Background on the Nike Cortez: According to Nike.com a Coach by the name of “Bill Bowerman” wanted to make a better running shoe. He ended up taking a pair of flip flops and drafted then into shoes (running shoes). The Hybrid shoe was dubbed the Cortez and was noted for changing running in 1973; people made claims saying “it felt like running on the moon”.
