My Shoe Mashups – Reynolds Hypercourt


Created by Trevor Groen

When skating high impact spots, it’s essential to have shoes that will without a doubt protect your feet. In this installation of My Shoe Mashups, we bring you a thin cupsole that not only protects your feet from heavy impact, but will also last.

Why it works

Upper – Emerica Reynolds Low Vulc

  • classic design, one-piece toecap
  • lightly padded tongue and collar + tongue-centering straps

Aside from being a great and simple vulcanized shoe, there’s just something special about skating one of Andrew Reynolds’ Emerica models.

Toecap – Adidas Matchcourt

  • rubber toecap
  • improved durability
  • aesthetic

It’s no surprise why rubber toecaps have become such a popular feature in modern skateboarding footwear, vastly improving the lifespan of shoes in the kickflip area.

Sole – Nike SB Bruin Hyperfeel

  • no midsole
  • thick, replaceable insole
  • flex grooves
  • arch support
  • extremely grippy
  • durable

Even though cupsoles mimicking vulcanized soles are almost a standard feature in skate shoes nowadays, the Bruin Hyperfeel manages to do this in a way that is new and extremely functional.

After combining all of these features we’re left with The Reynolds Hypercourt – a thin and stylish piece of footwear that has exceptional durability in the kickflip area and some of the best boardfeel and impact protection available.

What 3 shoes would you mash into 1?
