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.

I disagree. The Wino has virtually no sole, strictly a chill seeker. It can not be compared to a skate shoe by any means. And the Laced is a cupsole. Two VERY different shoes.

I think the Romero 2 couldn't be any better. You get all the benefits your average low profile vans, but with a longer last suede upper. The shape of the toe box on these is perfect for skating. And let's not forget to mention Sole Tech's earth friendly glue that's used in the construction of their shoes. Do mother nature a favor and put your feet in these instead of something else. You won't be disappointed.

I agree with the original comment. It has taken me awhile to break them in, but they are still a bit awkward. I love Emerica though my last pair of last a full year.
