Product Watch - Sole Technology

Posted on Thursday, February 22, 2018 by Clint

The new line of footwear from Sole Tech brings us all the classic style we have come to expect from Emerica and ES’ shoes, but they have added some new tech features that really bring their footwear to the next level. Both the Reynolds 3 G6 Vulc and the Reynolds G6 feature new Drop-in G6 PU insoles so your feet can handle drops even The Boss would second guess. The Reynolds 3 Vulc features special, double wrapped Vulc Construction which provides more support than the average vulcanized shoe. Two of Emerica’s riders, Colin Provost and Jon Dickson, had a chance to put their own personal touches on the Wino G6 Slip-On, and the final products look amazing!

Moving on to Es’ footwear and the classic SLB 97, designed by Sal Barbier. This is another re-issued style that has aged like wine and still looks great all these years later. The “Square” shoe series continues on with the Square Three, a slimmed down version of earlier Square models that features STI foam and a micro fleece inner. The Es’ team let their guys get their hands on some staple shoes, and Wade Desarmo and Tom Asta kept it clean with Off-White color ways and Gum accents. Lastly, there’s a fresh take on the Swift 1.5. featuring an icey outer sole and premium materials, the new Swift is everything a solid skate shoe should be.

The Reynolds 3 G6 is a remastered classic, pulling upon the Emerica x Reynolds nostalgia strings and history from one of our favorite shoes.

Inspired by the iconic pro models of Andrew's past. The new Reynolds G6 is a true cupsole with a "pour-in" G6 poly-urethane midsole.

The Wino G6 Slip-On brings best buds, Collin Provost and Jon Dickson, together on this new addition to the Emerica line, with each of them backing their own signature colorway.

The SLB 97 is one of the most demanded styles for éS from skateboarders around the world. This 3rd signature designed shoe from the legendary Sal Barbier, helped push skate footwear design and style to new standards.

The New SQUARE THREE is a combination of 2 on the most highly demanded éS styles to be reissued – the Sq 1 & Sq 2. Vulcanized construction and an STI Energy Foam insole create the ultimate fusion of control and comfort.

The eS Accel Slim Mid Shoes are mid top editions of the classic Accel with a padded collar for added ankle protection while an STI Ortholite insole delivers lightweight cushioning and comfort.

The Accel Slim Shoes are a reconstructed version of the best selling Accel Shoe from eS' Footwear. The Accel Slim uses the same classic lines as the original Accel, but this time is slimmed down for a more consistent fit and better flick.

The NEW Swift 1.5 is inspired by rich 90's tech heritage and is fully loaded with the function and style. The iconic sillicone éS "Accent" on the ollie area connects deeply with a whole generation of skateboarders that understand the éS story of innovation, progression, and style.
