These shoes are a straight forward vulcanized sneaker with just a little extra durability. Great flexibility, board feel and control, fewer blowouts. Overall, your choice is pretty easy-peasy, Mr. Lemon Squeezy.
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.
Rubber Toe Cap - Prevents blowouts from repeated flip tricks.
Triangle Tread - Emerica's Triangle Tread pattern provides maximum grip for more confident skating.
