a vulcanized shoe that gives you great board feel, yet seems to me more abrasive resistant than the bombers and fortes I rode before, both in the upper material, but also the sole seems to be wearing out less easily now. according to board feel they are similar to the t-gun.
in my view the ripper and patriot vulc models tend run a bit longer than for example the forte, trooper, t-guns or bomber models I had before. my feet are on the mid to wider end and I can wear them a half size smaller than usual. the insoles are remarkably thick at the heels and hence comfortable
I only just started the skateboard section of time as a color, so I can’t order big stock of items with different sizes. usually I would put these on backorder, but I can’t guarantee every size is available from the distributor at all times, and I don’t want to disappoint people. so if you are interested in these shoes but your size is not available please use the “get notified when this item is available!” option above and I will do my best to make your item available asap, or consider your sizing/model wishes for next orders. thanks for your support!
Here’s what the manufacturer has to say:
Whoever tries this Vulc Patriot will love it. A classic shape, lower than its big brother, tested to last longer than any of our vulcanized lineup. The double bumpers give extra grip and durability. This Patriot grips until the end.
