The Emerica Hsu G6 Weatherized skate shoes feature a water-repellent wax synthetic upper for year-round wear. Though specially built for the rain, rest assured Hsu's latest pro model can still skate. Emerica shaved off 125 grams from Hsu's original shoe and added extra support via an internal G6 welded frame that won't bag out over time.Underneath, signature G6 High Rebound Foam delivers lasting impact protection, with a Triangle Tread outsole welded directly to the midsole for improved board control. Cool air ventilation throughout the tongue and medial quarter panels prevent overheating for a more comfortable wear.
