Osiris: Wicked styling, especially on the d-3. particular care for protection is shown in only particular models though, such as attax. Other models however are pussy shoes and break in one day. Osiris shoes are the shit, but only the good models.
Vans: All of the pro shoes are good. They are cheap and have good protection and look pretty good. Durability is not as good as some of the more expensive shoes on the market, but they have a wicked price. Also, in every single one of their shoes I have tried, they have the best board feel EVER. This is partly because they usually don't have all that high tech shit with super huge air bags and stuff.
Axion: These are good, grippy, lightweight shoes. However, don't be fooled. They make running shoes too. If you see any axion shoes that don't look like skate shoes, then they aren't. My friend has some of the running shoe ones, and they aren't good for skating.
DC: These shoes are way too expensive. BUT, they are good, high quality shoes. However, they are not good enough for their price that can exceed 200 bucks. Anyways, good looking lightweight shoes, good protection, same shit as all the other good skate shoe companies.
Adidas: This is a soccer company. What could you possibly expect from them. They have no protection except for like 2 models, and they look like soccer shoes.
Globe: Good protection on all of their pro signature models. Some of their team models however are bad. Most of them though have really good protection, are lightweight, and look good.
ES: They rip very easily and they are made very cheap. They are my least favourite shoe because of their limit of protection. They only last about 1 or 2 months. The bottom wears away really fast especially on the side. Also they are made with cheap material and only single stiched. But they are non-expensive compaired to other shoes and look very cool.
