The one-piece is a new addition to the Reynolds line, keeping making sure they skate to their maximum capacity and any seam problems to a minimum. The Reynolds Low Vulc is designed with a customized sole, featuring Emerica\u2019s trademarked Triangle Tread?. Triangle Tread holds the best of both worlds, allowing for great grip mixed with durability and protection. Adding some padding to the tongue allows for extra comfort without being overly bulky, which would negatively effecting the lace system and look of the shoe. It holds just enough padding and protection in a lightweight skate shoe build. Identified as Vulc Construction, The Reynolds Low Vulc\u2019s sole is equipped with this vulc system, which allows for extra grip and durability. Great board feel allows you to have more control over your board when you\u2019re rolling on and off the board. The Reynolds Low Vulc is available in mostly suede, which is the preferred and tried and true material skaters prefer. It lasts a bit longer than canvas, is softer, and feels more comfortable after a few hours of skating.
