There are 3 shoes that will go down as the Top 3 shoes of ALL TIMES!!
1. SAL BARBIER'S #23 1995 LOW TOPS
2. THE ANDREW REYNOLD'S 3 EMERICAS
3. THE BLUE W/THE GUM SOLES JOHN DICKSON 1ST SHOE
These are the best current shoe made by Emerica right now for skating. I got the blue & black Suede Dicksons with the gum soles. They're freakin' sick!! They hold up like The Provider Blue Leathers I got last year with the double layered front half of the shoe which makes em ultra durable on the Ollie and kicks kickflip tip, but I think they have better board feel. They look epic too!! Please never stop making the blue Suede & black with brown gum soles cuz they're the best lookin Emericas since I got my last pair of the last edition of your Grey and Black Suede Figgy Doses! For me the Figgies are the best non-skating all-around shoes on the market no matter what the company, but for me the best all-around skateboarding shoe on the entire market are these 1st shoes by John Dickson's collaboration with your company Emerica (Blue & Black Suede Lo Tops w/Brown Gum Desert Tread Soles). Also please definitely don't stop ever making and selling Figgy Doses, cuz they're my regular everyday shoes for when I'm not skatin', ridin my Arbor Longboard, mountain biking, or hiking in the woods cuz they look so dope and they're incredibly and insanely comfortable too! Definitely release some more Figgies cuz they're sold out everywhere in my size 11.5 and I'm jonesin' for a new pair for sure!! But definitely do yourself a favor and get these Dicksons cuz u won't be disappointed I guarantee!! Also I love the top flexible cushioned little section on the very top of the heel of these Dicksons cuz it completely solves my problem of shoes givin me heel blisters on the top back area on my Achilles Tendons, yeah it's so simple but the perfect answer to the heel blister problem I always get while I'm skateboarding unless I'm wearing these Dicksons. So thank for that to u guys and John cuz it's changed my life!! So get urself some of the Dicksons, cuz I'm gonna get another pair come next month for my bday!! EMERICA 4 EVER!!! One!!
I had 3 pairs of the Wino G6 (standard) and those have been my favorite shoe, ever. These Dickson G6's are definitely nice. They have a bit more padding around the edge of the ankle which is nice, but doesn't hug my ankle as nice as the Wino G6 standards. The color is fine, they didn't have nearly as many options as they did on the Wino G6, which is unfortunate as they had some bad@** color options for that.
I would buy these again, but would rather have the Wino G6 laced standards for casual use. These also did come a little scuffed on the edges. It appeared that they had rubbed against each other as there were black marks along the suede / felt (whatever fabric it is) but it wasn't serious enough for me to want to send them back, since I got them on sale for a good price. That is Emericas #1 thing IMO, selling great shoes at a discounted price.
love them. they hold up for a long time without scuffing and they have great board feel yet great impact resistance. these are the best shoes ive skated so far. great look aswell. 13/10.
These are the best shoes, BUT they really need the contrasting piping/stripe/whatever near the top of the outsole. A couple of color ways have had it, it looks so much better than the single color.
SKATED W EM TWICE ONCE AT THE SKATE PARK…. SHOES ARE AN ALL AROUND EVERYDAY WEAR COMFY SHOE GREAT FOR SKATING OR RUNNING ERRANDS TO GET POTTING SOIL FOR CACTUS OR TO HIGH END RESTAURANTS WHERE YOUR DEBIT CARD GETS STOLEN BY THE WAITER (THAT HAPPENED LAST WEEK) GREAT SHOE EMERICA !!!!
