Even though the new vulcanized collection from Emerica is a hit with skaters everywhere, the dudes at Emerica are keeping us older guys in mind with all of these cupsole options. The Provost and Troubadour are still featured within this array of cupsoles but something tells us that they both have the potential of leaving too soon in the next season or so to make room for newer models. Not trying to be a downer, we’re #jussayin.
Leo’s models are looking cleaner and classier than ever. All of the colorways in his Leo 2, Troubadour and Laced are coming in some neutral offerings that’ll go good with any pair of slacks and/or jeans. The potential to #NeverUncuff is at its fullest with Leo’s collection of shoes and makes us wonder if he’s the unofficial T.H. spokesmen at Emerica…His shoes are the dressiest of the bunch so to say the least, there’s potential here.
The contrast to Leo’s collection of dress-capable skate shoes is Westgate’s series of Chillers within his G6-backed shoes. The runner toe continues to gain traction with those OG’s that remember the good ol’ days but we’re hoping the same is true for those youngsters out there. The runner toe flicks the same, if not better, than conventional skate shoes of today. If Westgate drops some more footy in those beauties, it’ll only be a matter of time before the kids come around. His latest colorways are evenly distributed between mesh and suede uppers. Whether you’re attracted to the Westgate’s for their “athletic feel” (using this term extremely loose) or for their deceiving functionality (they really do skate incredibly well), you’ll find what ever preference you’re looking for in the Westgate G6.
