Best Skate Pants

In skateboarding, falling and spills are just a part of the sport so it is best to have pants that are durable enough to hold up without having to be replaced too frequently. A good pair should also be breathable and super-comfortable to move around in — and if they look cool, that certainly doesn’t hurt either. So, with that in mind, FN rounded up a few of the top styles on the market for men from well-respected brands like Dickies, Volcom and more. Shop from a plethora of colorways to fit your own unique style.

1. Volcom Frickin Modern Fit Chino Pant

Volcom's chinos consist of a polyester-cotton blend with a hint of elastane for top-notch stretch and overall durability.

Pros: They come in a variety of colorways like sky blue, navy, army green, teal, black, brown, khaki and more.

Cons: The pockets on these may not be as secure as others.
