The Emerica Hsu G6 skate shoes represent the latest evolution of Jerry Hsu's first pro model with a redesign that emphasizes clean, minimalist style and lightweight protection. Emerica shaved off 125 grams from Hsu's original shoe and added extra support via a new internal G6 welded frame that won't bag out over time.
Underneath, Emerica's signature G6 High Rebound Foam delivers lasting impact protection. A Triangle Tread outsole welded directly to the midsole ensures grip and responsive board control. Cool air ventilation throughout the tongue and medial quarter panels prevent overheating for a more comfortable wear.
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.
Triangle Tread - Emerica's Triangle Tread pattern provides maximum grip for more confident skating.
