Just as you wouldn't go Bowling in the wrong shoes, and you wouldn't wear high-heels for running, you shouldn't wear normal trainers to skate. Wear proper skate shoes. They are designed to survive the wear and tear you get from skating; like when you do ollies in non-skate shoes, you will destroy the toe in a matter or minutes. Definately buy some good skate shoes.
