The heavy anticipation behind this shoe all started when Brandon was spotted wearing these in his Zoo York 20 years strong web clip. Not too long after that, it started a frenzy within the skateboarding community about the return of the retro/runner toe look. Although many have been forthcoming about their distaste of this new model, (mainly kids born after 1999) we’re excited about Westgate’s upcoming pro model. Not only does this shoe reinforce Emerica’s “Higher Quality” campaign but it also shows promise of some incredible comfort. The likelihood of being able to walk, rather than limp, after an exhausting session just increased.
More news to come on this shoe in the coming weeks, including pricing info, release date & more. As far as we know, it should have all the latest technology & improvements that Emerica’s been implementing into all of their Higher Quality shoes.
