This classic Emerica shoe is made with a single wrap vulcanized construction and a one piece toe for even and consistent wearing. The die-cut EVA insole provides impact protection while retaining boardfeel and flexibility, while the triangle tread outsole offers durable multi-directional grip on and off the board.
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.
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.
One Piece Toe - A one piece toe allows the upper material to wear evenly, without worrying about blowing out a seam
