When I first slipped into these, they felt amazingly comfortable and they blew me away. These are Andrew Reynolds 3rd signature model on Emerica, and I think he’s done a really good job with these.
Specs wise, the suede/leather uppers are stuck to a vulcanised gum rubber outsole that have a great grip control contrast, not too much nor to little! They have a seamless toe cap with perforations for fresh shoe-breath, and a nicely padded tongue with straps to keep it lined up and comfortable throughout. It also sports a System G2 in the heel for cushioning support to keep you heel bruise free whilst perfecting your frontside flips down the Newcastle 40.
I personally enjoy riding these and am currently on my second pair. I have to say that they don’t seem to hold up that long and become flimsy after a few months of grip dragging, but they hold up long enough for you to get great kicks out them. They’re great and I love rocking them, definitely a good overall skate shoe.
