Brandon Westgate is no stranger to going big and fast on a skateboard, which is why he relies on his signature Emerica Men's Brandon Westgate Skate Shoe when he takes to the streets. It provides the right balance between cushioning and board feel so you can pull off tech tricks, but still send it huge when you want to. The durable suede upper is abrasion resistant for durability, and engineered mesh in the tongue and sidewalls vents air to keep your feet cool and dry. Tongue stabilizing Wings keep the tongue centered for a secure fit, and a one piece toecap prevents blowouts and improves flick to help you get those tre flips around more smoothly. Lightweight G6 foam in the midsole provides the cushioning and support of a cupsole shoe while keeping weight to a minimum. Flex grooves in the rubber outsole speed up break in time and increase flexibility for better board feel, and the Triangle Tread pattern ensures reliable grip on your board. Plus, a high density rubber panel in the heel slows down wear from heel drags when you're dialing in the speed for a big gap.
