Home to riders like Pat Duffy, Dave Bachinsky, Ryan Smith and Dan Drehbol, California-based skate company Vox Footwear has rolled out new colorways of their flagship team model, the Vox Trooper Relief. The Trooper Relief features a soft synthetic and suede build, vulcanized construction and gum rubber outsoles. Padded tongues and textile linings enhance comfort. Performance technology is highlighted by the company’s I.R.S. Gel System to help fight heel bruising and Shocksorb EVA insoles for high impact skating.

For Fall/Holiday 2011, Vox has issued the Trooper Relief in colorways that could be described as a “Neon” or “Highlighter” Pack. Three of the skate shoes feature black suede uppers with contrasting branding, heel tabs and soles. The fourth shoe also sports a black suede base, accented by neon on the contrast stitching, branding, heel and foxing stripe. Camouflage prints appear on the outsole of each shoe.
