So what skate shoe brands are acceptable to use these days? Been a minute since I been into skating.

iPath is currently dead. If they revive themselves, they'll be aiming for the Accel/Dunk demographic. But most skaters now want as little material between their feet and the board, and iPath doesn't have anything in their former catalog to fullfill that demand.
Emerica/Etnies/És used to have the best shoes, but all they do now is put less and less padding in their shoes and keep them the same price.
Seriously, the Herman 2 was probably THE best skate shoes that's been made. I kept skating in mine until the sole wore out. I ducktaped the toe to keep skating in them
