These bad boys have been tearing up parks and streets alike since the late 90’s, winning over skaters' hearts with their killer timeless silhouette, unmatched durability, and insane performance.
What’s Skate Shop Day?
Skateboarding is more than just a sport; it's a lifestyle. And what better way to celebrate this culture than by having a designated day for skateboarders and their beloved skate shops? Enter Skate Shop Day, an annual event held on the second Saturday in February that celebrates the unique relationship between skaters and their skate shops.
On this special day, skaters from all around the world come together to support small businesses and show their love for the skateboarding community. It's a chance for shops to showcase their latest products, offer exclusive discounts, and host fun events like demos and contests.
One product that every skater should have on their radar during Skate Shop Day is the Emerica OG-1 shoe. These iconic shoes have been a staple in the skateboarding scene since they were first released in the late 90’s. They quickly gained popularity among pro skaters for their durability, comfort, and style.
What’s makes the OG-1 so special?
Emerica was founded by professional skateboarders, and the OG-1 is a nod to their original skate shoe design. By wearing these shoes, you feel like your part of a community that values authenticity and staying true to roots.
The OG-1 shoes are known for their timeless silhouette. These classic kicks maintain a clean and simple aesthetic that never goes out of style. This years exclusive Tan Navy colorway pays homage to the Original MJ1. Almost immediately after its release in 1998, it was already considered one of the best skate shoes ever. Emerica was renowned for their no-nonsense, functional and durable designs, and this shoe was no exception. Despite not being too bulky nor too slim, it seemed to have just the right amount of padding, cushioning, board feel, and style... Marc Johnson backing them up certainly didn't hurt either.
Here's an ad from the original release of the MJ1.
