Emerica has been on top of the vegan shoe game for a while, reliably putting out a list of their non-animal foot products every season for the past few years. I’m too lazy to even plagiarize the work they’ve already done, but I like to pick favorites. I’m a sucker for mid shoes as of late, and I’ve always liked the Hsu. The Emerica Hsu 2 is updated; it retains the same silhouette as its predecessor, streamlined down some.
With this shoe, you know what you’re getting: a solid, grippy, skate shoe. For those who need the extra cushioning, it comes with an “STI PU Foam Lite™ Level 3 footbed cushioning system.” Also keep in mind that the only vegan option is this colorway.
