Agenda Sneak Peek: Emerica SP15′ – Part 2

The Romero Laced – $54.99

The cupsole options continue with our second part of Emerica’s Agenda sneak peek, presented by Active.

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. Emerica.Leo.RomeroAll 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.

    Honestly I don’t understand the need for chill skate shoes with all the technical, impact, boardfeel and control capabilities I wont use because the shoe is encased in a mesh and canvas upper. I admit they have forced a niche in the market but any old shoe will do when relaxing/not skating. You don’t have to support your favorite shoe brand in every aspect of your life with a shoe they marketed to make you believe you need for every trendy activity.

    I’m diggin’ those Romero’s! Very classy, especially that black colorway. That black blue and red Westgate colorway is siiiiick!!! If I were gonna drop the dough, I’d get the orange suede ones though as suede is the best. Westgate’s kicks are always very technical and futuristic looking without being flashy and tasteless. His first model was money! Definitely gonna need some more Reynolds’ kicks too, I love the cushion, style and support. It’s also nice to have shoes that hold up to a few weeks of skating every day for an hour, we don’t see that a lot these days although the ‘industry standard’ looks like it’s reverting to giving customers their money’s worth for sure.

    What the fuck is the point of a chiller? We’re skateboarders are we not? The idea of having a shoe to hang out in and then having a shoe to skate in is the equivalent of a high school football player having some Jordans to attend class in and cleats to play football in. Its cheesy as fuck and for skateboarding, its unnecessary. Skateboarding should not be a fashion show. Skateboarders needing “chillers” is the dumbest fucking thing I have ever heard of.
