These super durable skate shoes take advantage of Nike's latest Hyperfeel technology to dramatically boost support while maintaining the board feel you expect from a vulc sole. The secret to Koston's success with the Hypervulc is a strategically molded sockliner placed over a thin, flexible outsole. The result is a surprising level of responsive cushioning and precise board control.
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.
Herringbone Tread - The herringbone pattern is frequently used in basketball shoes for its ability to provide optimal traction on smooth surfaces.
Elastic Gusseted Tongue - Lets you wear the shoe like a slip-on when laces are removed.
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.
Lightweight Mesh Tongue - Increases breathability to keep your feet comfortable.
Low-Profile Design - Designed for an anatomically correct, contoured fit.
Hyperfeel Technology - Nike Hyperfeel allows the shoe to move naturally with the foot by using fewer total layers than a traditional shoe construction. A responsive drop-in insole is placed directly over an ultra-thin, highly flexible outsole, resulting in a natural motion sensation and precise board feel.
