The Emerica Westgate is a mid-top skate shoe with some serious skate heft for some aggressive east-coast ripping! Spring 2012 was good on vegan colorways! Fall 2012 Not so much, but the Westgate is still widely available in common sizes.
The all canvas upper has lots of layering and a triple stitched toe cap for increased wear. The tongue and collar are padded to keep the ankle well protected. “stiFUSION” soles combine the board feel and look of a vulcanized sole, but lighter and more durable. The Westgate reminds me of the original Hsu and The Situation. Sort of a mashup but still with a unique look. If your loyal to SoleTech, these should hold you over until next season.
