The Emerica Tempster, our most anticipated vegan skateboard shoe of the year, is finally here! Ed Templeton’s newest mid-top comes in two excellent colorways! Black (True to what seems like the majority of vegan skate shoes) 20oz canvas with grey detailing or Green with Ed’s original art! The canvas print is actually reversed on both. So the inside of those mean greens is black and the black hide some hidden art! The choice is a no brainer; buy both colors, skate the black and put the green in a glass case next to the skateboard/art collection. Then pine after not buying 2 more to skate and or save.
The Tempster is subtle but the offset metal eyelets really give the shoe a unique flair. Stitching on the collar and side paneling add some durability. The toe cap is smooth and has enough layering further back to extend the skate time. A thin tongue and thinly padded collar will make for an easy shoe to rock all day! Vulcanized soles have a new triangle tread pattern for a gripping, close to board feel.
Keep an eye out for our First Look Review, coming soon. In the meantime you might want to grab up a few pairs. If you do, take a photo and send them our way! We’ll post them on our twitter page @veganskateblog
