Jerry Hsu has done it again! I got these shoes purely because Hsu put his name on them. These are, by far, some of the best skate shoes I have ever skated. I skate everyday, kick flip and varial like a beast and my shoes are fine. There is some normal wear and tear, but otherwise nothing is wrong with these shoes. Go get some, you won't regret it.

So I enjoyed the look of the shoe but as soon as I put it on I realized it was the most uncomfortable shoe ever. It could be that this shoe in particular was made incorrectly but the seam in the bottom of the tongue just digs into my foot. Also three days into actual use of the shoe, the sole on the inside of the right shoe completely separated from the leather. I hope I can scrape more than a month’s worth of use out of these shoes, but I severely doubt it. This is a weak shoe.

Awesome shoes, good for skating, the only problem was they were half a size too big, so I had to reorder half a size smaller than my normal shoe size, I wear size 9 I had to order 8.5 for them to fit.

Happy Feet - My skate boarder son picked out these shoes and liked them so much we bought another pair- same shoes!- in a different color. He's a fussy sneaker kid and is really happy with these. Comfortable, look good, wear well.

This was one of the best pair of skate shoes I’ve had in a while. The soles are nice and grippy and don't wear down too fast. I skated hard in them every day for over a month and they're still skateable. The grip is starting to get flat and I have a hole in the bottom so I ordered another pair. You definitely want these shoes.

Emerica Hsu - Emerica Hsu - I love this shoe so much! It’s the perfect shoe for skating hard! Big drops are nothing for these shoes! No heel pain or bruises what so ever. Great grip as well! You’ll catch your tricks 6ft high and catch em' bolts! I recommend these shoes for all types of skating, vert and street! Get these shoes if you’re looking for amazing durability, comfort, board feel, and grip. Oh yeah I’ve been skating these shoes for about three weeks and no holes whatsoever I do tre's and k-flips all the time.

I'd also recommend: Osiris Chino Low, Emerica Herman 2, Osiris Duffel
