Lace up the Jerry Hsu-designed Emerica Men's HSU Vulcanized Skate Shoe and go thrash like the Emerica pro himself. The Hsu rocks a hidden lace strap to keep your laces from flailing, and a jacked-up insole photo portrait. These mid-tops keep your ankles from rolling like a raver, and thin padding on the tongue and collar give you more board feel. The Hsu's triple-stitched toecaps don't disintegrate after a gnarly session, and the vulcanized rubber outsoles keep you from doing the electric slid into traffic.

Prime midtops

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Was wanting a bulkier shoe for the winter than the Herman 6's I just had and got what I wanted. This shoe has a solid construction and really gives you some great ankle support being a midtop. The lace protection is pretty hefty too and yet I can still feel my board pretty well. Great skateboarding shoe from Emerica once again!


i love them i feel lighter with them on

    the color could be better but it's okay


    Good but doesn't last

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    They're probably the comfiest shoes I've worn, the STI insoles are awesome. The sole is really grippy, but even though they're vulcanized, the board feel isn't great. They flick kickflips and tre's nicely. The bad side is how little they last. After like a week of skating, probably like 2 hours totally, the kickflip area was down past the leather midsole and the other material (it's not suede, i don't know what it is) was starting to rip. Get some shoe goo with these and they're great, but if you don't want to make them look bad with it then you should probably get something else.



      Man i love these shoes! the are the most comfy shoe i have every worn... I am the only skater in my school, so most of them dont get it and hate it. They say the colors mess everything up. I dont think so. Havent skated em cause its snowing outside and dont have a indoor park. Im sure its sick! i got the blue/brown/yellow looks sweet, feels good!



      Great Kicks

        They are crazy awesome. Great Grip,style colorways. The new red colorway is awesome. THey break in fast, comfertable, true to size. They last forever.


        Pretty good

          I didn't buy these through DogFunk.

          I got these ones (, and the material is different from those offered on DogFunk. It's more of a canvas-like material that showed wear within an hour of using. I'm a bigger guy, so as a result probably kick/drag my feet harder on the griptape, so that may be a factor here, but I was not very satisfied with the durability of these shoes. Maybe if I had some Shoe Goo and started patching the holes when they were still small this wouldn't have been an issue. Oh well, we learn new things everyday.

          They are really comfortable though, and provide great ankle support without being too bulky, so for that reason I have to give them 4 stars.

          if i wear size 7.5 fallens what size do i...

          if i wear size 7.5 fallens what size do i wear emerica


          Red Black and White

            The Hsu mids are badass. theyre comfortable durable and dont look too bad either. im bout to buy the black and brown ones after i post this



              these are the coolest shoes i have owned. mine are yelo and blu and marroon and they are so comfy and cool. i get comliments all the time. BUY THEM they are sick AND great for longboarding. almost too grippy for longboarding haha, these would be great for skating tho.


              Nothing Better

                This is the only pair of shoes I skate; I refuse to skate anything else because not only is the feel amazing on these shoes, but its a good blend of support, feel, durability, and weight. I have skated most brands and almost all emericas, but these last above average because of the double stitched toe-cap but still had the close feel because they are slim fitting to the foot and comfortable. Last about 2-3 months of daily skating which is pretty good, at least in my experience (i've had lakai's and es's last for less than a month and fallens for almost 4 months). They also have a decently thick sole, even though it wears through pretty quick. Overall, best combination of shoe there is to offer without sacrificing at least one attribute.

                what is better the gum soles or regular...

                what is better the gum soles or regular soles????????

                Gum soles have the tendency to be softer then the conventional rubber sole. There are pros and cons to this. The pro is better board feel, softer landings, and better grip with the gum. The standard rubber sole will last longer, but really, the suede will blow out before the sole, any day.

                Gum soles have better grip, you will not see/feel a drastic change but it will increase board feel and gripp slightly.


                Great Kicks, Bad Slicks...

                  So i got these shoes, paid full price for them; something like 60$ and loved them. The Purple really pops when you put on some accent Laces. They are outrageously comfortable and great to skate it with all the protection you could need.... My only qualm with these fly kicks is that the Sole for someone who skates (Everyday) wears through very quickly... I go through a pair of shoes in about 3 months... regardless of the brand :/ Thats the only downside keeping it from the 5 star rating.


                  Only Shoe I Love

                    Minni, Black friday. Bought them about a year and a half ago, and still wearing them. Not ripping because i got 9 pairs of shoes.. but i wear these things every day. great comfort, awsome style. To bad they dont make em in grey anymore.

                    they do make them in gray. I just got the gray from my local zumiez store!

                      Love it

                        I have used these shoes for about a year now, just normal everyday use, and they are still looking good. I'm very pleased with these shoes. Emerica knows shoes! : D

                        Love it

                        I just ordered the Dark Grey/Blue ones along with a couple of pants and shirts, do they come with extra laces? the light blue ones are alright, but if they came with dark blue ones it'd extra legit, thanks


                        they where ok

                          i had these shoes for 2 months and then they where already screwed up. I had hole in them and the soul got holes in them aswell.


                          Made in the suede

                            The Emerica Hsu is nothing more than what it promises to be. Classic mid top skate shoes with good ankle coverage. Nice long toe box with lace guard on the ollie pads. Super comfortable and allows good feel between foot and board.


                            Nice footbeds

                              What impressed me most about these Hsus was the footbed. It was way more comfy and padded than most footbeds that come with skate shoes.

                              Overall good style

                              Sizewise, I sized down .5, as I do with all Vulk sole skeakers and it was worth it. In cup soles (nike dunk etc), I wear a 10 and I got these in a 9.5. Woo

                              I dont have these shoes yet and i would use them for skateboarding if i did. They look relly good i would buy them anyday.
