Updated for the modern skateboarder, the Icon from Diamond Supply Co. has all of the performance features without sacrificing the lifestyle looks. The seamless toe box allows for the upper to wear evenly, making the shoe last longer. The sticky gum outsole has herringbone tread which provides excellent grip and boardfeel, and the toe and heel have denser rubber in the highest wear areas. Inside the shoe is a polyurethane sock liner which adds extra support and impact absorption, and some light padding on the collar keeps these shoes nice and comfy.
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.
