There are times when you may want to just kick back and relax, to the point that you don’t even feel like having to tie your shoes. But let’s be honest, flip flops and sandals aren’t for everyone, and they’re not exactly something that will protect your toes should you decide to hop on your skateboard or bike and head to the local watering hole. Emerica has the perfect solution: the Emerica Laced, which is now available in two new suede versions.

One colorway in Black and one in White, wrapped in a soft suede material, have arrived. The hidden gem of its design, which was inspired and created by Emerica team riders, is an internal elastic band that keeps them snug on your feet; whether you want shoelaces involved is up to you. The Emerica Laced can act as a simple slip-on, you can throw in the laces and leave them hanging, or you can lace them up in traditional fashion. It’s gum-soled with a herringbone traction pattern that is even suitable for kick-pushing your way around if needed.
