The long overdue release of Emerica‘s Justin “Figgy” Figueroa shoe has finally arrived. They are pumping this shoe pretty hard, and it seems to be for all the right reasons. Although the shoe may look very simple and thin, it is actually one of the most padded shoes Emerica has in their arsenal right now. Figgy likes to jump down and grind some of the heaviest terrain in skateboarding, so naturally his shoe accomodates for that type of skating perfectly. It also features a built-in sock liner to keep your foot strapped in for that wild ride down your local 12 stair handrail. Unfortunately, we won’t have them for sale until the middle of February, but we were granted an early preview of the shoe in person. Here what Figgy, himself, has to say about the shoe and check out some of our photos below.
