Praxis Poet is a slim, low-top skateboard shoe with a nice vegan synthetic upper and some style to boot! With either a black synthetic nubuck or a grey soft synthetic-suede called chamude you’ll be able to pop off more ollies, flip tricks, and general ripping then a traditional canvas upper.
The Poet is built on the Praxis Sacred Sole, which is a super slim cupsole. It has incredible board feel and a great grip. We reviewed the Elemental last year and the sole and board feel was the best part of the shoe with out a doubt. Ballistic nylon is fitted on the heals as well as boarding the toe. The tongue and collars have a mid-weight of padding for a comfortable fit with good foot protection.
Some of the little details on this shoe really count too. The cut-outs for the bottom two lace eyelets and the top nylon give you some options to really make the laces last. But they come with spares just in case!
