We designed this vulcanised skate shoe for skaters seeking a very soft, streamlined shoe for a good feel on the board. The slip-on version of the Vulca 500. The vulcanised construction offers excellent flexibility while the cup sole provides superior traction.
This is a shoe without laces that slips on your foot like a slipper. This construction provides maximum softness and flexibility for the greatest feel of the board and total freedom of movement. Beyond elasticity, a slip-on is a classic style for skate shoes.
A vulcanised sole - a must in the world of skating - is a sole made from rubber that is heated under pressure. Vulcanisation glues together the fabric upper, the rubber band and the sole. This technique has numerous benefits: it creates a shoe that is flexible, lightweight and with excellent traction. This gives you a better feel of the skateboard for improved precision when doing tricks.
Besides the issue of style, high-top and low-top shoes offer different benefits. A high-top shoe will give you more stability, ankle protection and support while a low-top style provides a greater range of movement and makes for a lighter shoe.
Choosing a skate shoe means finding something that gives you both freedom and precision. New vulcanised shoes are generally quite narrow the first few times you wear them. After a few hours the vulcanised band will change shape to fit your feet. The best thing is to get shoes that are fitted.For narrow feet, try choosing one size below your normal shoe size.
The moulded air sacs inside the sole limit vibrations by dampening the shockwaves caused by skating tricks.
Store in a dry, cool place.
