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!
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
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.
