If the Nike Blazers and the Team classics had a vulcanized child, the Heritage Vulc Premium is the result. Foam cushioning inside the shoe and an added ollie patch on the toebox keep you shredding all day. The flexible vulcanized design and durable upper combine to make a shoe that breaks in quick and holds out against the crust.
- Decreased Rubber in Outsole
- EVA Foam Sockliner
- One Piece Toe Box
- Additional Ollie Patch
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.
Decreased Rubber in Outsole - Less rubber means less weight, and this outsole also happens to feature a skate specific tread pattern for more flexibility and traction.
EVA Foam Sockliner - 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 Box - This design offers improved durability by removing seams, each seam offers a weakness in that the threads holding together the fabric are invariably weaker than the fabric that is attached. Without the seams you're able to skate your shoes longer.
