The Romero Laced shoes have been a top-seller for a long time at Emerica and so they've extended the line into Laced High shoes for all the skaters that appreciate the extra support and ankle-bite protection. Inspired by the skaters that get it all year round, these winterized shoes feature Action Nubuck leather, burly hiker laces and a warm Sherpa lining.
Cupsole - Cupsoles are durable, well-cushioned and provide the best impact protection against hard landings. The sole consists of a single rubber layer, reinforced with glue then stitched to the upper. Cupsoles generally last longer than vulcanized soles, but don't provide as much flexibility and board feel right out of the box.
Elastic Tongue-Centering Straps - Keeps the tongue from sliding down sideways while you're skating.
Triangle Tread - Emerica's Triangle Tread pattern provides maximum grip for more confident skating.
Die Cut Eva Insole - Ethyl Vinyl Acetate (EVA) insoles are a firmer material than you would find on standard orthotic insoles to offer better shock absorption while reducing the weight of the overall shoe.
