Jamie Foy's first pro model shoe with New Balance has a simple vulcanized design with a durable construction to keep you skating the shoes longer. The single piece toe box design keeps the stitches back away from the highest wear areas, and underneath the upper is a rubber shield that wraps all the way around the foot so that you'll be protected on all sides. Inside the shoe is the ABZORB+ technology and a polyurethane insole that has enough impact protection for Big Boy Foy himself, so you know it's good.

Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. These don't provide as much foot protection as cupsoles, but they are preferred if you’re looking for good board feel in a shoe with less weight and bulk.
Elastic Gusseted Tongue - This tongue feature helps create a snug fit, something you're going to want while skating.
Internal Toe Protection - Hidden from view but working hard to provide extra durability.
One Piece Quarter Panel and Vamp - This construction method means no seam obstruction and removes the possibility of blowouts so you can skate these shoes even longer.
ABZORB+® Insert - A New Balance custom insert with added protection in high-impact areas
Polyurethane Insole - Closed cell polyurethane insert absorbs impacts and provides a consistent fit.
Ndurance® Rubber Outsole - Ndurance® is a highly durable rubber compound that increases the lifespan of this shoe's outsole.
Tapered Crating in Midsole - This adds both support and boardfeel to the shoe.
The insole of the shoe is also pretty terrible. If you do purchase this shoe, make sure to get a different set of insoles.
Wont buy these again, sorry New Balance.
