Francis/ridgemont/reynolds 3 era emerica was pretty cool. Pretty much pre 2014 emerica was absolutely great

real game-changing shit from Emerica!!!!
I'm interested to see if the Figgy Dose stays in the lineup or if they cupsoled the Alcove to take it's place.
Literally a mix of the Figgy 1 & 2

Am I the only one "bothered" by Reynolds saying "I can't skate vulcs" and then only skating vulcs?
[close]

Yes, because he’s already addressed the “issue” a few months ago.

Could you please provide some enlightenment?

I don’t really remember bc I wasn’t that scandalized by the change but I believe it was something about Vans Vulcs have more support than emericas (he also seems to skate new AVEs a lot) and he doesn’t skate high impact stuff anymore.  I think it’s in one of his first interviews talking about the change over
Imagine thinking Vans vulcs have more protection than the G6 model he used to run on Emerica. lol ::)  Sounds like Reynolds drank the Vans kool-aid for a check at this point (that was hard to type/admit and I hope it ain't true), UNLESS he is actually working on getting Vans to run more cupsoles similar to the AVE Pro in the future.

Emerica wasn’t treating him well for a couple of contracts and he actively pursued getting on Vans so I don’t think any flavorade was drank, probably just a preference changed.

Okay.

1. They’re half cab pros, not originals, so the shape is whacky.
2. They’re baby blue.

Fair play if Emerica did not treat him well. I never saw anything in the numerous "Reynolds of Emerica" threads about a year ago about that, so thank you! As for the flavorade comment, that was why I added "i hope it ain't true" since I don't think Reynolds is that foolish (clearly he's not - multiple brands doing well in skateboarding currently or previously highlight that)

yo tbh my guess is emerica simply couldn't afford to keep reynolds any longer if he doesn't produce parts like he used to. that company doesn't have the budget to keep even him as a legacy pro. it would actually be a liability because i'm sure companies like emerica operate on a year to year basis nowadays. vans has vf money, they can easily pay reynolds better than emerica well into his 50s if he chooses to skate as long, while he has no pressure to create any magnum opus part for them anymore. i could see the seperation being a mutually beneficial thing in the end. it frees up funds for emerica to invest in the future or bump up others to flagship pro, and reynolds can get involved with vans as much as he like. he basically ensured that he will be part of a shoe team for the next ten years as opposed to being the main attraction at a fairly fledgeling company that might go under quickly if they have one or two really bad years of sales.

also it's kinda cool how he is now on the same team as tony hawk and cardiel and cab and all these other legends. if vans is sort of the shoe retirement home then that's totally fine imo.

so it probably was money motivated movements on all sides, but not the super greedy kind. reynolds and emerica just looking out for themselves financially, respectively. you probably won't catch me in vans anytime soon because of it, but it's cool reynolds is so stoked on these shoes and he clearly wants to do shit at vans in regards to designing or modding shoes.

How is the heel lock on the Gilby Hi's? I feel like my skinny heels would slip right out of them if I didn't football lace them like Chucks.

I think Reynolds' cup/vulc preference switched at some point while he was still on Emerica. I remember him wearing the Reynolds Low Vulc (aka 'The Low') a fair bit toward the end with Emerica. A Vans Pro vulc has less to it than a G6 cupsole, but his Emerica vulcs were some of the flimsiest shoes I've ever seen. If it's Vans Pro vulc vs. that shoe, the Vans is a step up in protection.

the reynolds 3s were vulc - with a thick tongue and good collar... but i do recall during the "stay gold" era and baker has a deathwish he wore the hell out those AR slims which were an amazing vulc.

Also jaws, neen, and whoever else skates/takes money from them should be ashamed.
