Overview of this review
Size and fit
The eS Aura Vulc is a skate shoe with a low-top profile and dual lacing system. Seven pairs of metal reinforced eyelets and flat cotton laces comprise the standard lace-up closure system, which gives wearers a secure yet customizable fit. Further enhancing the fit are tongue stabilizers that keep the shoe snug even with loose laces. A woven heel tab helps for easy on and off access.
eS Aura Vulc Style
The eS Aura Vulc is a modern reinterpretation of the classic eS Aura skate shoes from 1995. It boasts a timeless skate shoe appeal with its low-top construction, dual lacing system, suede/synthetic uppers, and classic eS brandings to the tongue, sides, heel tab, and soles. The eS Aura Vulc also features an asymmetrical Ollie guard offering enhanced durability and perforation detailing on the sidewalls and toe box providing improved breathability.
Colorways available for this modernized eS skate kick include black, white/green, and red.
The eS Aura Vulc took the profile of the cupsole eS Aura skate shoes from the mid-‘90s and revamped it to better suit the modern skate market. Unlike its predecessor, this eS skate shoe features a vulcanized outsole for better skate performance. The vulcanized sole gives enhanced board feel and flexibility compared to its cup sole counterpart.
