This shoe fully met my expectations; just like Emerica has for me for 20+ years. Perfect amount of board-feel and flexibility right out of the box!
I'm on my second pair and I have two pairs on ice. For real, these are the some of the best shoes I have ever skated. They have lasted twice as long as other shoes. If you just be mindful of gluing down the front sewn seams as they rip and shoe goo a little here and there, they will last a long, long time. I only say that because the sole outlasts every other part of the shoe by a long shot and doesn't seem to lose grip. I tend to go through my flick and ollie areas much faster than my soles anyway. I threw in some FP gamechangers in and these are the perfect shoe for my 44 year old aching legs. EMERICA, please don't stop making these shoes!
Late 90s vibe on these, make more like this.
EMERICA please, please keep this shoe in the line up. The white leather colorway is fantastic. The toecaps are highly durable, and I have pointy kickflips. Please Emerica you have a gem on your hands.
