Classy but a Bit Awkward
I love the way these shoes look; they are like combination of the wino and the laced. With that said, I feel like emerica could have stepped up their game a bit on the construction. The heel is not very supported and is hard to get on without completely untying and retying the shoe entirely. They wear quite fast, which is expected for single layer toe-cap, but do have good feel. They are quite a cool shoe, but not too much of an improvement over the wino or laced in terms of comfort or skating ability.
