Converse (or Cons) introduces the CTS as their skateboarding version of the classic Chuck Taylor. With just a few minor tweaks, the CTS goes along way and is sure to hold up while staying true to its classic look.
The CTS has the same shape as the Chuck Taylor, it has the same narrow feel and the same vulcanized sole, no changes here. The real improvements that Converse made were with the insole, the tongue and upper. The insole is as padded as any I’ve seen, especially in the heel (no bruises here), it also has a hard plastic edge around the bottom edge which should help the shoe hold its shape longer and to help prevent the shoe from folding over. The tongue and upper are slightly padded, but this is not your normal shoe foam padding. It almost feels like they are using a memory foam or tempurpedic material, because when you squeeze it in, the foam steadily goes right back into place. Finally, on the all suede version, the rubber toe cap was replaced with a suede cap. This is going to give you a better grip for your flip in flip out.

The Emerica Reynolds Cruisers have arrived. Active Pro Andrew Reynolds introduces his 6th shoe on Emerica footwear. It has a bit more of a casual look with less padding around the heel & tongue but still has that great feel you loved about the Reynolds Lights or Reynolds 3’s. It’s made with a vulcanized gum sole, suede or canvas upper, thin padded tongue & collar and comes equipped with Sole Tech’s patent STI Foam insoles. Take it from Andrew…
How sick is Andrews Backyard? I honestly can say that these are my favorite Emerica shoes to date. If you like minimalistic shoes or like any of the old Reynolds, you should pick a pair up. We have 4 colors & they are priced under $60.

So I just finished watching the new Paul Rodriguez Proof DVD and have to say it’s an amazing DVD that’s well worth watching. I’m really liking this new format of am videos and homie videos that are starting to pop up. It’s a breath of fresh air to see great parts from guys who you aren’t that familiar with, and these guys brought the heat with some bangin parts. I was really impressed with Nate Principato, Stevie Perez, Keelan Dadd and Josh Grossguth. Then there was the return of Sam Baptista which I was super stoked on and parts from some familiar names such as Chaz Ortiz, Darrell Stanton and Terell Robinson. But for me the highlights came in the form of P-Rod’s opening montage and the closing part which was shared by Carlos Zarazua, Justin Schulte & Torey Pudwill. The video has a ton of technical skating and is a must watch for any street skater. To purchase a copy click here, or check out our Proof premiere schedule.
