Normally skate cups. These rock- they don’t get all floppy in the toe once broken in. Great shoe for everything except flick! They also break laces quick. Would like to see a slightly higher cut with a more impact friendly sole, a slightly sharper toe shape, and better breathability. Would buy again - earned a believer in the brand
First time buying this particular model of shoe, little different feel from what I’m used to, took a couple days of work to break them in, easier to skate once they’re broken in. Will wear this pair out until it’s time for the next pair- praise Emerica!
