What is a vulcanised sole?
A vulcanised sole - a must in the world of skating - is a sole made from rubber that is heated under pressure. Vulcanisation glues together the fabric upper, the rubber band and the sole.
This technique has numerous benefits: it creates a shoe that is flexible, lightweight and with excellent traction. This gives you a better feel of the skateboard for improved precision when doing tricks.
What are the differences between high and low shoes?
Aside from their style, high and low shoes do not offer the same advantages.
A high-top shoe will give you more stability, ankle protection and support while a low-top style provides a greater range of movement and makes for a lighter shoe.
How do you choose your skate shoe size?
Choosing a skate shoe means finding something that gives you both freedom and precision. New vulcanised shoes are generally quite narrow the first few times you wear them. After a few hours the vulcanised band will change shape to fit your feet.
The best thing is to get shoes that are fitted.For narrow feet, try choosing one size below your normal shoe size.
Are Vulca shoes comfortable?
The moulded air sacs inside the sole limit vibrations by dampening the shockwaves caused by skating tricks.
