Excellent skate shoe right out of the box. My biggest concerns for skate shoes are durability, short break-in periods, and ankle support. This shoe provides all three. This is my 4th pair and they're amazing 👏
These are the best skate shoes out there. Great ankle support and sole cushion. Very comfortable and durable with good board feel. Don't stop making these Emerica!
A great shoe!
Comfortable straight out of the box, a great firm fit, if a little long in the toe but not to the point where it causes problems! Stood up to a 20 mile walk with no bother at all
Great colourway and value
Without a doubt Best Mid-Top Shoe
Emerica executed a phenomenal design. I’m 6’3, close to 200 lbs and still skate very hard; transition, street, handrails, blah blah.. in any event, finding a mid top shoe that is completely supportive, yet in no way is restrictive something hard to achieve. The pillar is that shoe, I can skate hard and not have to worry about rolling my ankle. The shoe itself has great board feel, great breathability compared to other mid top shoes. The foxing/ Ollie patch on the side is perfect! Extra vulcanized rubber at the heal also stabilizes your ankle as well. I was tired of giving my money to non core skateboarding brands but frankly I wasn’t hesitant that in doing so I would sacrifice quality. That is just not the case. I’ve been skate for a long time, these shoes are the best mid-tops on the market. The only thing I have to say is EMERICA PLEASE DO NOT DISCONTINUE THIS SHOE!!! It is amazing.
It’s a nice, sturdy shoe. Somewhat heavy, but not too bad.
