Average rating: 4.9 stars Al 6/30/20 Oregon These shoes look good and skate really well. The flick shield doesn't stiffen the shoe or affect flex, which was a concern for me. I've worn size 9.5 in many different Emerica models/styles over the past 10 years and these are the only ones that fit slightly large for its size. Luckily I can wear some thicker socks and the Halo fit system actually works super well. Support true skate companies!
