I bought these shoes to avoid having the Vans Authentics everyone else has and still have a basic good looking set of kicks. I haven't skated them yet, but they are surprisingly comfortable. The foot bed in these def has more padding than the Vans Authentics or slipons. I am rocking the laces, but you could rock these as slip ons for sure. I usually wear a size 10 and I got these in a 10. They fit well. I could have squeezed a 9.5 if I really wanted to.
Note - these have a cup sole that looks like a vulk sole.
These shoes are pretty legit. Wanted something similar to vans but with more support and a slightly different look. These are perfect for that look, really clean and slim. They did take a little while to break in, but once broken in they fit great. Sizing was pretty good, got a 9 but theyre just a little too loose to wear without laces for me. But thats ok cause they look better with the laces anyways. Overall a good, simple shoe to rock anywhere
Don't be duped by the vulc look on these. It is in fact a cupsole. You get that cool look from the vulc, but the actual skate-able cupsole. This shoe couldn't skate any better. Watch any footage of Leo from the last 4 years, and hes probably wearing this shoes. Even though he had a 2 pro models, he still always wore this. Its the best under $50 shoe on the market.
The Emerica Laced is one of the most basic skate shoes around. It has absolutely no padding making it you can have ultimate board feel when skating these. The suede does make the shoe last longer than a normal, canvas style skate shoe and the toe has internal re-enforcement so your grip doesn't rip through quite as fast.
these shoes are the best shoes i ever got for skateing. at first my foot hung off the side of the bottom, because i have fat feet. but when they stretched out a little from skating, it was perfect. padding is not bad. i like the thin look.
Very comfortable shoe. Super thin and light. Real bare bones skate shoe. Sizes do come in large. Seems like they are about 1 full size larger than listed especially after they stretch out a bit. Would definitely recommend though.
I like these shoes a lot, i wear a 10 and the 10's fit me well. If you are going to get the tan color, just be careful to keep them clean!
They came super fast in the mail. It took a couple of days to wear them in but they are comfy now. I LIKE!
I love these shoes! I like to wear these with the no show socks and they look awesome! Very comfy and very light!
Just got these shoes today and skated them all day, I'm more than happy.
First off the shoe was way to big. I wear a size 10, bought a 9 1/2 and it was still way to big. They really f'd up their sizing charts. Its cool if you like skating around in clown shoes, but thats not my style. They look way better in the picture then they do in real life. Super disappointed in these shoes.
I have a little wider foot than most and they fit a little too snug on me. They fit a little smaller to size too and if you don't wear thick socks it sort of irritates the back of your heels. otherwise they look sick as hell.
