Finally some good shit after a whole page of people quoting the same busted ass Cariumas. I hope Vans never stop making the Crockett Highs.

The few times I've gone to my local Vans store I always see people coming in and asking specifically for Crockett. I don't know why but that shoe seems to have some following. I'm curious what didn't you like about them?

I think they obviously work for a lot of people, and I support Mr Crockett being a pro from my neighboring state, They're just not for me. Unlike @pizzafliptofakie i generally prefer cupsoles, and this "hybrid" was just not close enough to a cup for me. They just felt like thicker vulcs to me. My flick was absolutely horrible in them, not an objective flaw of the shoe since they work for lots of people, but they didnt suit me at all. My friend who is a vulc guy tried them and thought the same thing. I'm also not a fan of the padding (or lack thereof) around the ankle, it makes them feel way less structured and more floppy than other high tops. Again, a preference. I also felt like they pushed my feet inward while skating, might just be the way my foot is shaped or something, but i just didnt sit right in those shoes, especially under the conditions of skateboarding.
They work great for my mountain bike though, since im mostly on my toes, and the floppiness combined with the extra bit of security is kinda nice on a bike.

I like Crockett from like end of week 1 to end of week 3 or 4. Then I wear through the toe and the sole starts detaching and it just gets too floppy for a cup.

Who would buy these for $140?! And the colorway is so bad. I actually like Alf but as a designer, he is just not great.

I'm pretty sure Alf isn't making skate shoes. Some are skateable and clearly skate influenced, but I'm pretty sure these are just like generic, higher fashion lifestyle shoes. I could see people walking around NYC or LA in those.

I think that they're sick. They have like tech, formal hybrid thing going on.



Savale's got some great classic looking silhouettes aswell. I do wonder how he's funding this project. Starting a luxury brand is ambitious.

Same too probably. I love that shoe. Have the brown leather Reserve release but haven’t worn them in a while. Might have to dust them off again.

@EmericaTM any plans to do any more Reserve releases? I kick myself for not getting the Kirchart Shifters.

Sole tech winter shoes are the truth. I have some Etnies from last year and they are way more waterproof than my old vans mte or whatever. Plus they aren’t just vans fall apart vulc

Y’all in here hating on savale , but man just gave you the closest thing to an ipath cat you’ll ever get again

https://www.instagram.com/reel/CjJC_hJp3Za/?igshid=ODBkMDk1MTU=


Also. Looking at that lakai catalog brought only one thing to mind. How is that nico kid STILL on the team. He’s been on since before the flare, didn’t have a part, never has clips, doesn’t go on tour and still gets colorways and a check? That ic connect must bring them a good amount of sales to keep him around .

Only $150 too!

Nico seems like he’d be the meanest “cool kid” at high school.  The one everyone outside of that group fantasizes about beating up, but never does

Just out of curiousity @EmericaTM what is the benefit of doing a collab with someone like Independent, who isn’t necessarily pulling new eyes in?   Do those collabs sell significantly better?   Is it making a sponsor of Dickson’s happy?   Not bashing it, genuinely curious about the business of it all

If there were shops that sold independent but not emerica would they maybe get the shoes in? I also don't know I'm just trying to think of any reason possible. I always thought collabs were dumb unless it's something like emerica+Truman (I think that's what it was called) leather or etnies+ Michelin where it's actually two different products merging to make a better product

Id probably get it for motorcycling, cause even moto brands haven't considered Chelsea boot design for riding.

I don't think it means they're dropping it. Sometimes they just do a bunch of colorways in consecutive seasons, and take a season off new colorways for a shoe while the previous ones sell.
