    Default Posi for emerica insight

    HAve any of you guys ever skated a pair of Emerica Francis? I was considering getting a pair. How do they compare to the comfort, support, durability, etc. of half cabs?

    If time, also compare Hsus to half cabs. Again, posi for ANYONE who gives a real, thought out answer.

    2 of my friends have had them. they really liked the way they skated, but they didnt hold up a really long time. probably as long as vans would or a bit longer. ive walked around in them and theyre pretty damn comfy

    half cabs are definitely better than the francis but I really liked my Hsus and I know a lot of people also do

    I'd say get the hsus if you want something more like halfcabs, but you might as well just get half cabs then

    I have the Francis lows and they're pretty good. Just put some Dr. Scholls and they're pretty comfortable. For durability, the sole finally wore out after a month of skating. That's probably the only complaint I have about them.

    Ive skated the Francis mids and i like the sole and the impact support, and the shoe actually held up longer than i expected... i got a blowout after like two weeks, but i just shoegoo'd dat shit and it was fine. Not the best shoes i have ever skated.. but i like em a lot

    I'm sorry but you're voice pisses me off. And you pronounce Hsu's name wrong.

    I've had both. Francis's are alright, they're thin but feel kind of flimsy. they're pretty durable though. Hsu's skate a lot better and are more comfortable but are a little less durable in my opinion. shoe goo does wonders though

    If you really want emericas I'd definitely get Leo mids or cruisers. My frien swears by Leo mids.

    Halfcabs are much better than the hsus except for looks.
