The Fallen Patriot II Black-Ops is available yet again in a Vegan colorway. Black synthetic nubuck upper, black cup sole, black laces, black…Notice a theme? The Black-ops line is dark as night and has historically leaned on the Vegan side of things.
The Patriot II is one of Fallen’s higher cut models. Not a mid-top by any means but the collar gives a little more ankle protection and tongue has so good padding too. This is the kind of shoe you can skate every season and order an extra pair just in case they stopped making them.
Sort of a mixed bag in sizes, hope you don’t wear 6.5.
SkateWarehouse sizes 7.5-11 $59.99
FreeStyle Shop sizes 5-9.5 (no 6.5) $63.95
Zappos sizes 6-9 (no 6.5)$60.00
I see this more and more on the blog, vegan skaters want synthetic nubuck and synthetic leather on their shoes. If this is something you want, get a pair and or send positive feedback to the companies making the product. Here is Fallen (Black Box) contact page.
