These are built upon the original Wino silhouette featuring a beefed-up construction for modern skateboarding. The G6 footbed cushions hard landings, while a double-wrapped vulcanized sole improves durability. Tuff Cuff padding at the ankle prevents fabric from cutting into the back of your foot, allowing you to skate longer in comfort. Emerica also dropped in their latest Heel Anchor System that locks in the fit to prevent slip. Emerica heard you wanted a Wino you could skate. This is their answer.
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.
G6 Insole - A lightweight, high-rebound foam cushion insole to help absorb impacts from hard landings.
Heel Anchor System - An arc shaped foam padding that wraps around your ankles and is designed to keep your feet where you want them, locked into your shoes.
Tuff Cuff Ankle Protection - Padding that wraps around the top of your shoe, preventing fabric from cutting into the back of your foot, adding comfort, and in turn letting you skate longer.
