Converse and Civilist, a Berlin-based skate shop, came up with these. It's one of the most unique (and amazing) collaborations yet. Both shoes have translucent bottoms with images of the Berlin TV Tower and Berlin Radio Tower embedded in grippy rubber outsoles on either foot to represent both East and West Berlin. There's an outline of the city on the tongue as well. Nike Lunarlon insoles are used for enhanced cushioning, making them true skate shoes. These are definitely in limited supply, so swoop up a pair quick.
Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. The sole consists of several layers of rubber, glued together then attached to the upper with rubber foxing tape. Vulcanized soles don’t provide as much foot protection or support as cupsoles, but they are preferred if you’re looking for good board feel in a shoe with less weight and bulk.
