Emerica’s latest pro model isn’t turning heads and isn’t trying to break the mold with a unique design that’ll promise you your deepest desire. Its a shoe that’s purely designed for skateboarding without too many bells or whistles hanging around the exterior. In fact, its the interior that has all the bells and whistles you’re looking for.
As most of you may have noticed from his testimonial, Figgy’s credited Leo with designing one of his favorite shoes so naturally, he didn’t want to stray away from what worked when it came time to design his pro model. With its versatility lying inside, it should provide no distractions when you’re looking down moments before popping your tricks.
More over, it appears that we’re entering a new stage of “tech” footwear- a more subtle version if you will, not like that of the early 2000’s. One that has an average aesthetic but a superior interior with everything you’re looking for in a skate shoe. Some agree with this while others are actually upset with the lackluster design. Regardless as to where you stand with this shoe’s design, you can rest assure that Figgy is looking to win you over with a shoe that he loves. If his dedication on his board mirrors that of his first pro model, you might find yourself won over by the time his MADE part drops. And if that’s not the case (not likely), you might find yourself attracted to them because of their extremely reasonable price point of $59.99. Relatively the cheapest pro model to come out in quite sometime. Especially when others are costing upwards of $135. Ya’ll skater’s hit the lotto or something? Peep the chill colorway. Goes good with that vintage vest you’ve been looking for.
