This durable high top draws its inspiration from athletic shoes of the past, while utilizing modern technology to add comfortable protection to the shoe's minimal silhouette. A perforated rubber toe underlay, and a reverse wrap vulcanized rubber outsole, combine to add a healthy dose of heightened durability.
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.
Polyurethane Footbed - Polyurethane is the perfect material for skate shoe insoles as its naturally cushioning properties help dampen vibrations and absorb impacts.
Reverse Wrap Rubber Outsole - Reverse wrapping adds durability to the outsole.
